After weeks of matches our basketball league came to a conclusion at lunchtime today with a very exciting final between the Chicago Bulls and the L.A. Lakers. In the end Chicago won on a scoreline of six points to two. Well done to both teams for reaching the final and playing some really good basketball. All eight teams that took part improved their skills in every match and really enjoyed the competition. Thanks to Ms. Walsh for organising and refereeing all the matches.
