U14 Girls' Basketball

An impressive 94-4 win saw Heston through to the 3rd round of the London Youth Games

 Heston U14 Girls' Basketball team

As champions of Hounslow, Heston Community School’s girls’ basketball team played Vyners School (Hillingdon champions) in Round 2 of the 2014 London Youth Games U14 Schools Basketball Tournament.  

Despite missing influential vice-captain, Elvira Lajqi, Hounslow imposed themselves from the start.  With inspirational point guard, Bethany Mann displaying her repertoire of skills and the power and guile of Year 8 guard, Lara Hassan, the visitors dominated game.  By the end of the first quarter Heston had a 32 point lead which was extended to 58 points at half time.

An excellent team talk at half-time from the injured Lajqi saw Heston score 22 points without reply to give them an 2:82 point third quarter lead and an impressive 4-94 final score. The scorers were: Hassan (28pts), Mann (28pts), Sangha (12pts), Fadul (8pts), Mannion (6pts), Purba (6pts), Kalsi (4pts), Tassil (2pts).

Well done to the whole team and good luck in the next round!
