Brigadiers scored a narrow win over Muskettes in the womens basketball game. The game was very slow and as you can tell by the score 39-38 but it was controlled basketball. The second half was exciting and Brigadiers was in the lead by 11 points
but Muskettes wasnt going to make it that easy for them and scored 6 quick points to energise the game. Brigadiers was ahead at half time by 2 points. The last few minutes of the game saw both teams neck and neck, and both had eight fouls. A foul on a Brigadiers player in the 18th minute of the second half saw two free throws given which gave them a one point lead. A basket to Muskettes with 20 seconds to go saw it go one ahead. Brigadiers knowing they were running out of time ran the ball quickly from the back of the court and an excellent long shot from Lyn Chamberlain saw them take the game.

Rata beat Brigadiers Gold in the women's A grade, this was another exciting game with both teams 30 all at half time.
Rata scrambled well and gained a lot of possession to score their goals, Rata's rebounding was a skill that stood out in this game and especially that of D. Barnes.
