Girls U15 Basketball Team


The Middle School girl’s basketball team faced off against the Anglo Singapore International School on Wednesday, May 14 at the ASIS campus. This was the first competitive match for the Berkeley U15’s girls and there were a few nerves in the pre-match warm up.


The starting team was Champagne. Puffy, Tarn, Simone and Pam. Anglo gained possession with the jump ball and scored the first basket with an offensive rebound.  It was a slow start for Berkeley but the girls kept the ball moving around the key and played good defense. Berkeley were playing good counter and made a stream of breakaways only to be foiled under the basket.  The game and teams were evenly matched in scoring throughout the first quarter and the game went into halftime with a score of 8-4.


"Anglo are a tall team and were very physical.  They were a bit more aggressive than us in the first half so we had to make some adjustments," said girl’s coach Darrick Couts.


Berkeley came out in the second half fired up and Champagne scored the first basket to cut the lead to 8-6.  After that there was a long scoreless period where both teams had many open chances but failed to put the ball in the basket.  Anglo finally broke the drought with a nice baseline jumper and the margin was extended to six.  Berkeley had many more chances and played their hearts out but finally ran out of steam and fell 14-6 at the final buzzer. 


The girls made Berkeley proud and it was a great effort for our inaugural basketball match.  Making great contributions to the team off the bench were Minnie, Air, Mimi and Opal.
