On Tuesday, 23 April our Sixth Form team travelled to Guildford for the playoff final, after maintaining a 100% home win record.  Prior to the game, we knew our opponents would use their physical strength to put us under pressure, but this strategy nearly backfired when their captain (an England player) was ejected from the match after delivering two ‘flagrant fouls’!  After going behind by 12 points, the Sutton Grammar team did brilliantly to claw back the deficit – it was 47-47 with two minutes to go.  But, sometimes, in sport, things don’t quite fall your way.  Either side had opportunities to win, but, sadly, it just wasn’t our day.  Just one basket separated the teams with the final score 53 – 51.  A great effort from the team all-the-same. And special mentions to Nashawn Myles (this year’s captain) and to Mr Zakrewski – the Head Coach for all of their hard work throughout the season.
