Local basketball players in Secunda

On Saturday, 21 April, the Mpact Eagles competed in a tournament in Secunda. The team lost 32-38 against Middelburg in their first game and 26-28 against Breyton in their second game.

However, the rules stated that the highest scoring team in each pool would qualify for the semifinals, and the local team went through. As there was not enough time left to play in the semifinalin Secunda, the organisers decided to apply the same rule to determine the two teams which would play in the final.

When the positions were determined, Mkhondo’s team was placed third. Congratulations to the players with this achievement. Good luck with your upcoming games and continue working hard to do well. The organisers would like to thank Mpact for the transport that they sponsored for the team.
