This weeks shameful performance by The Mighty Kites was by far THE worse since the teams inception…. At tip-off, we had a grand total of 3 players…. The minimum required to take the court and play a game is 4, they must be there within the first half of the first half before the dreaded F- word is used: Forfeit. Phone calls were flying between the team to rally support, but alas it was hopeless, frustratingly we were beaten, much to our surprise, and theirs, being the first game they’ve won…. We had 3 players show up… One 15 minutes after the game had started and the other two with 8 minutes left on the clock for the second half… Not happy at all. I expect this to be the first and only time that we are beaten by that horrible F-word ever.
After admitting defeat, we did play a friendly game against And Far Away with one of the guys from the Flashbacks; Ron and their coach; Lawrence. And Far Away are definitely building a better game as they go, so it was good practice… Highlights for me were stopping a 2 on 1 break, stealing the ball on their dribble, collecting a couple of rebounds and numerous great passes. Hopefully I can imitate the same in real matches.
Next week sees a bye, but we’re back in action on the 13th against Team Beerfest at 930. A Cheer squad would be much appreciated!!!
