Two wins for Cowbridge Girls Basketball teams

The Year 8 and Year 7 Cowbridge girls teams headed across the Vale on Thursday Dec 8th to play Bro Morgannwg. It was the second game of the season for both Cowbridge teams and for a couple of players their first ever competitive Basketball fixture.

The Year 8’s played first and easily jumped to an early lead behind Co-Captains Vivian Yip and Grace Wignall. New team addition Annabelle Llewellyn-Jones came out firing and scored multiple times inside. Lily Buick did a great job running the fastbreak, Elin Tweed knocked down some jump shots and the girls led the whole way, winning easily 30-10.

The Year 7’s took the court keen to replicate the same level of success. Led by their Vale county representing starting 5, Carys Roy, Katie Williams, Maddie Tiessen, Caitlin Little and Emily Burt the Year 7 girls immediately took control of the game. Playing smart team Basketball they scored at will and ensured that victory was never in doubt. After the eventual confident 24-8 win 6th ‘man’ Imogen Piper said “I know first hand from my bro, O-Pipes, that there’s a strong tradition of excellence at Basketball in Cowbridge. We’re determined to continue that!”
