Northwood 1st Team Basketball vs Hilton

The 1st team game started at a very fast pace with both schools aiming for points on the scoreboard. Northwood attacked from the start and denied Hilton any scoring chances in the first few minutes. Unfortunately an accident occurred in the first few minutes which saw a Hilton player fracture his wrist. Our best wishes go out to him for a speedy recovery.

After a short delay the game resumed with the high tempo in which it stopped. Northwood boys played like Knights on a battle field with commitment and a zest to win. The team played outstanding basketball.

N. Ntombela was the star player of the game, as he dribbled his way past a packed defence to score time after time. His ball handling skills and vision made cracks in the Hilton’s defence and as our basket score rose. In total he scored 8 baskets. He also made the most number of turn over balls.

Our defense was very impressive with strong and tall players , ie Trollip and Gininda. They won almost every rebound.

Jason Daniels displayed his shooting talent with a 3 pointer and a number of near misses.

All credits must go to the coaching staff and the players.
