Coffs young Suns shine brightly on court

IT was a big weekend for the Coffs Harbour Suns' junior representative teams in Port Macquarie and Wauchope.

The under-12 Girls Division 1 girls played outstanding defence all weekend, relentless in all of their basketball games despite the steamy hot conditions.

The first game the girls played was against Maitland which was a much bigger team. The Suns blew them away with how hard they ran to win by 10 points.

Their second game was against Gosford. Coffs were in the game right up until the last quarter before Gosford ran away with the win by 12 points.

Newcastle was the third opponent. It was close all the way through but Coffs Harbour's defence proved too strong for the opposition to create a last minute thriller that saw the Suns win by just one point.

It was a great team effort by the young Suns, finishing second on the ladder.
