Seconds to Spare!

The Academy’s Under 16s Basketball team snatched victory from the jaws of defeat yesterday, when they beat Newell Green’s team, coming back from three points down during the last ten seconds of play.

It was a tense and emotional match, as this was the final time that many of the Year 11 boys would play sport for the Academy.

MHA’s late score brought the match to a draw, and forcing the players into overtime, where they scored in the last three seconds to make the final score MHA 27 v 25 Newell Green.
