WEDNESDAY EVENING GRAND FINAL WRAP-UP (WINTER 2018)
Wednesday night Women’s and Mixed competitions have come to a close for Winter 2018.
The main event of the night, the A Grade Women’s final between Gas Baggers and Old Sharks had an unexpected turn of events. The absence Nicole Stanley and Virginia Anderson was was too much for Gas Baggers to overcome. Olivia Ellul had a team high 11 points. For Old Sharks it was the big 3; Jenna Mccormick (17 points), Bree Abbott (16 points) and Tegan Fiamengo (10 points) that really stood out. Mccormick opened the the game with two 3-pointers to have a 6-0 head start which set the tone for the night. Old Sharks won 49-38.
In the Mixed A Grade it was a huge scoring game with Space Jam (73 points) over coming Kobe Kwan Kanobi (53 points). Kieran Mcqueen had a field day with a night high 31 points include three 3-pointers. For Kobe Kwan Kanobi it was David Michael leading his team with 23 points including five 3-pointers. Shout out to Jordan Melrose (13 points) whose name continues to pop up in this week’s grand finals.
The closest game of the night was Mixed Nuts v. The Giants for the Mixed D Grade Final. The biggest lead for the game was The Giants up by 10 points early in the second half. Unfortunately they couldn’t hold on, with Pete Cochrane making shots when it counted. Mixed Nuts would go on to win by two points.
Frankston Basketball hopes everyone had a great night, and look forward to seeing everyone back next week as Summer 2018/19 season kicks off.
