Sports Report - Basketball fixture
The Chilton basketball XI took on a depleted Haygrove side in a friendly fixture. Chilton were quick out of the blocks and the physical nature of Grant Chidgey and co rattled Haygrove early on. Faye who was skippering the team, led the changes well and soon discarded her colour coded subs rotation sheet that she had produced pre match and soon realised sport doesn't run smoothly and always go to plan! At half time Chilton led 21-11 with Chidge, Bermond, Benetton, Chris Bown all contributing well.
In the second half Haygrove responded and challenged the guys more and pulled back slightly. But the introduction of Owen Court gave Chilton good drive towards the hoop and he collected some valuable baskets to maintain the lead. Chilton managed to hold on and won 41-29 in a great team performance but notable performances from Chidge, senior B man, junior B man and the tireless Bown.
