St Peter’s win opening game at Schools World Champs.

St P's v Greece

St Peter’s School Cambridge Girls opened their account at theISF Basketball World Schools Championship in Greece with a 58-41 win in a physical encounter with Greece.

Despite afew handling errors from St Peter’s in what Head Coach Leanne Walker described as a “nervous start,” the Schick National Champs were still able to forge a 15-8 opening quarter lead.

The momentum stayed with St Peter’s in the second quarter – they led 27-18 at half time and would go on to win all four periods.

Walker commented that there was some adjustments to be made as the games consisted of 4×8 minute quarters.

“It was a physical encounter with Greece adopting a determined pressing effort. This was overcome by some slick passing and good ball movement. Greece then dropped back into a zone but a corner three after some excellent inside-out action meant they switched out of that pretty quickly,” added Walker.

Unfortunately we do not have the individual scorers from the game.

St Peter’s are drawn in Group E of the girl’s competition alongside teams from Israel, Latvia as well as the Greek team and face Israel on Sunday at 5pm local time.

Team:

Charlisse-Leger Walker, Megan Bradley, Grace McGirr, Alana Paewai, Ella Bradley, Jayze’Lee Waihi, Toha Kemp, Ahi Williams, Dominique Stephens, Emma Baker, Waiata Jennings

Head Coach- Leanne Walker, Assistant Coach – Anthony Corban
