It was a successful weekend at the Shepparton Junior Basketball Tournament last week as the Benalla Breakers’ Under-16 girls won the C-grade grand final.
The Breakers made their way through to the finals with convincing wins against Shepparton 23-7, Deniliquin 40-14, Mansfield 49-8, Shepparton 26-9 (semi-final) and again defeating Shepparton 33-7 in the grand final.
The Under-14 squad girls qualified for the grand final and were runners-up to Swan Hill, losing by nine points.
The girls were recently runners-up at the Wangaratta Tournament a few weeks ago, narrowly defeated by one point playing Castlemaine; while in division one, Benalla’s Under-16 boys lost the preliminary final by only one point with just seconds to go in the game.
