The Rosebowl Basketball campaign was a hotly contested and high quality competition, which saw the St Andrew’s women thrive and triumph.
Our campaign started brilliantly with a convincing 60-point win over Women’s (83-23). The Drew’s team dominated from the first whistle, with their game structures and superior skills proving too much for the enthusiastic Women’s team.
The second game saw Drew’s display their dominance with an impressive win against John’s (97-23). Despite a slow start, which resulted in level scores towards the end of the first quarter, the experience of Maddy Clark combined with Fresher talents of Elle Caroll and Neive Roebuck allowed Drew’s to command the second half.
St Andrew’s continued their winning streak in the third game of their campaign, defeating the spirited Sancta team 91-43. Sancta proved they could score quickly, putting on 20 points in the first quarter. However, Drew’s superior skill execution and tenacity allowed the team to gain a strong lead by half time, which they continued to extend throughout the second half.
The final game against long-standing rivals, Wesley, was fiercely competitive with securing a VD and important Rosebowl points on the line. Wesley proved to be great competitors, causing havoc in defence and demonstrating their ability to control the play and score quickly. With scores nearly equal at half-time, it was the Drew’s girls relentless defence combined with their patience and confidence in attack that allowed them to dominate the second half. With the immense support of the Drew’s crowd and the team’s never-give up attitude, our women were able to attain an 80-59 win over Wesley.
Thank you to all the game officials who made this campaign possible and to all the supporters who came and watched.
