Kings Reclaim the Crown in Kununurra
After two months of tough competition the top four teams in the Kununurra “Nuff of the Puff” Men’s Basketball Competition made it to the finals. The first preliminary game was played between the first place team and the fourth place team. The first place Kings ran away with the game 41 to 28. Although the Tryers were a faster team, they just did not have the experience of the Kings. The second preliminary was a tighter affair as the second place Colts traded goal for goal with the third place Regulators but in the end the Colts earned the win with a final score of 29-23.
The preliminaries brought us to a Grand Final between the first place Kings and second place Colts. It was a great competition with tons of defence which kept the score low for the first half with The Colts going into halftime with a lead of 15 to 11. The second half saw more amazing play from both teams but when the buzzer rang the Kings had pulled away with just minutes left to defeat the Colts 35-33.
The Kings were crowned the Kununurra “Nuff of the Puff” Men’s Basketball Champions for 2015. The outstanding players of the game were Butchy Cox for the Kings and David Davies for the Colts. It was the second year for this competition and again it was huge success. We hope to continue the competition next year which will start up at the end of August once the East Kimberley Football League season winds up.
