Bromley Basketball Finals
Chislehurst basketball players played in the Bromley Finals on Monday at Chislehurst School for Girls. Teams from Hawes Down, Midfield and St Olaves Prep competed in a round-robin tournament to decide who would take home the cup. Chislehurst got by an inexperienced Midfield team without too much challenge, but were in tough against a very good team from Hawes Down. Our defence held strong however, and we escaped with a 4-0 victory. All that was left was to beat our long-time nemesis St Olaves, whose defence was as good as ours or better. The match was close the whole way, and a bit of panic started to set in when our opponents tied the game 2-2 with just 2 minutes remaining. The team persevered and got the ball into Sammy's hands, who dropped in a basket from a few feet out, and we hung on for the 4-2 victory and as a result were crowned the overall tournament champions.
