Dolphins extend division one title streak
ABBEY Sutherland continued her impressive form on the basketball court, leading the Monivae Dolphins to their seventh consecutive Hamilton Basketball Association division one women’s title on Wednesday night.
Sutherland starred for the Dolphins, scoring 28 points, 12 of which were from long range., in their win against Sportscene Minders to earn MVP honours in the final
The Dolphins took the early possession and made it count, as Grace Kearney opened the team’s account but was quickly answered by Minders player Aleisha McDonald.
Some tight defence and clever ball movement around the perimeter saw the Minders go to the line but failed to capitalise on the scoreboard.
It was a tight scrap at both ends of the court, as neither team was able to break the game open on the scoreboard.
