In between thunderstorms and under grey skies, ten boys basketball teams battled it out in the Petra U20 Invitational over the weekend, 4-5 February 2017. After two days of matches, the Final Four to emerge on Sunday were Falcon, Prince Edward, St George’s and hosts Petra.
Bolstered by cheering home crowds, Petra played a strong semi-final match where they were ultimately shut out by Prince Edward 15-12. In a second tense semi-final match, the boys from Esigodini beat St George’s by a single point to squeeze by with a 21-20 victory.
The final saw Prince Edward gain the trophy convincingly with a 24-15 win over Falcon. The other teams to participate in the tournament were Christian Brothers College, Gateway, Heritage, Kyle, Midlands Christian College and Westridge.
