West Midlands Police Basketball tournament – 22 May 2014

On Thursday our under 14 girls competed in the West Midlands Police Basketball tournament at Nechelles Leisure Centre.  Six schools entered and we took two teams, STACS Red and STACS Blue.

Our teams were in different groups and both placed second in their groups. We ended up playing ourselves in the play off for 3rd and 4th place with STACS Red taking 3rd place.

A huge congratulations to the girls for this results especially since we only had one practice before the competition itself!  Also I would like to thank Jared Mangco, Cori Traynor and Nicholas Gibbs who came to help coach the two teams and did a wonderful job.

Girls Under 14 West Midlands Cup Finals – 19 May 2014

STACS vs Sandwell Academy 0-5 Loss

The score line in no way reflects the quality of footballdemonstratedby our girls on the pitch. Even thereferee commented on the high standard of play and suggested if we had managed to score a goal in the first half, the final result may have been very different. In many ways wewere the better team: better ball control and handling, passing, communication;unfortunatelySandwell were the better team at scoring!

We started very strong with the ball being in our attacking end for the majority of the first half; Neive Fallon, Hannah Kenny and Aleasha Roche taking multiple shots at goal, but not quite getting past the line! Unfortunately we made threemistakes and Sandwell were very efficient atutilising these mistakes and managed to score 3 goals in the first half.

After a good motivational talking to over half time by Mr Pickard, the girls came back out on to the pitch with their heads held slightly higher and played as if they were only 1-0 down. Neive had two shots at goal before Sandwell had even had a proper touch of the ball due to our strongdefence and midfield. Unfortunately 20 minutes into the second half, Sandwell gained possession and scored and our heads visibly dropped and the fifth goal quickly followed.

Playing at West Bromich Albion, having a team talk in the away team's changing rooms, recording after match interviewsand seeing how the "behind the scenes" workswas a fantasticadditionto the day and hopefully one the girls will remember for a long time! Well done ladies, runners up inthe West Midlands - a fantastic achievement!
