Boston Whites and Dynamic Reds are the champions of the 2014 Raiwaqa Basketball Super League.
This was after winning the respective men’s and women’s finals at Ed’s Court in Raiwaqa yesterday.
Boston Whites proved their superiority in the men’s competition after defeating Bryce in the final 27-17. Earlier the Whites defeated their development side Boston Reds in the first semifinal 60-17 while Bryce booked their final spot after beating Warriors 35-25 in the second semifinal.
Dynamic Reds upset 2013 winners Sparks in the final 47-22, denying the defending champions the chance the perfect end to the 2014 season. Both teams won their semifinals in convincing fashion, Reds beating Lady Birds 44-26 and Sparks defeating Mystics 48-21.
Tournament organiser Peniasi Kainamoli commended all the teams for significant progress, especially new women’s champs Dynamic Reds.
“I believe all the teams have done a great job throughout the Super League and they’ve all improved so much, especially Dynamic Reds. This is a team made up of Under-19 players, most of whom are still in school. So it’s very pleasing to see such progress.
“With the Super League over, all the teams are now looking forward to the Easter Games and after the success of the Super League, we feel confident of their chances at the Games.”
Kainamoli confirmed all six women’s teams have automatically qualified for the 2014 Easter Games while eight of the men’s teams have reserved berths, Boston Whites booking one of the places following their win.
