GRENEWAY School's Year 8 basketball team will go into the championship final on a high after ending the season unbeaten.

They took the league title with a 36-24 win over St Christopher School in their final match.

The first two quarters were tight affairs, with both sides defending well but struggling to convert their chances.

However, the third quarter proved to be pivotal, with Greneway racing into a 12-point lead, thanks to some impressive passing.

This should have meant a comfortable final period for the home side, but St Christopher showed their quality to come back into the match and close the gap.

However, Greneway defended well in the closing stages to secure the win and the title.

Sam Tobiss got seven points, with Michael Viera-Roodenberg and John Middlemas adding six each.

Greneway will face St Christopher again in the final, which takes place today (Thursday) at ­Royston Leisure Centre.

Greneway's Year 7 team are also in their final, where they will face Highfield School from Letchworth. This match takes place on March 19.

They booked their place with a convincing 89-21 win over Heathcote School.

The game was over as a contest by the end of the first quarter, thanks to Greneway's incisive attacking play, and by half time the score was 50-12 in the home side's favour.

In the final two quarters, Greneway maintained their momentum to run out comfortable winners.

Guy Curtis led the way with 16 points, while ­captain Fergus Campbell contributed 10.
