THE Hamilton Hurricanes reigned supreme in two divisions of the Hamilton Junior Basketball Association Bendigo Bank Tournament at the weekend.
The Hurricanes claimed the ultimate prize in the Under 12 Girls and Under 14 Boys Division One competitions.
Under 12 Girls
THE Hurricanes’ Under 12 girls were victorious after they defeated Ararat by eight points.
On Saturday they played their first game against Warrnambool.
The late start was advantageous as the girls were all fired up to get on the court and play.
As in this game and the following game against Horsham, the girls played strong defence and came away winners.
Sunday was where the really hard, determined basketball came into play facing up to Ararat in the first game, who had previously beaten Hamilton by a narrow margin in Horsham.
This game could have gone either way with the final luck being on Ararat’s side, taking a two point win in the dying seconds of the game.
