Christianburg/ Wismar Secondary will play Linden Technical Institute in one semifinal and Mackenzie High school face New Silvercity Secondary in the other this afternoon when the Linden Town Week Schools basketball championship semifinals from 14.30hrs are played at the Mackenzie High School basketball court in Retrieve Linden.
In the final set of scheduled group play matches Saturday, Christianburg Wismar Secondary gained a walkover from Wisburg Secondary which propelled them to lead Group A with four points from two wins, as New Silvercity Secondary finished second on three points from one win and one loss as Wisburg Secondary had to settle for third from two losses with just one point as they gained no point for losing by walkover to Christianburg Wismar Secondary.
Christianburg Wismar Secondary began with a solid 38-26 win over New Silvercity Secondary to open the tournament and gained their second win via Wisburg Secondary not showing for their game. New Silvercity Secondary, however, won their match against Wisburg 31-14 to ensure their semifinal spot as Wisburg Secondary ended without a win to finish on one point and third in their group play.
Over in Group B it was a close call as Linden Foundation Secondary edged past Mackenzie High School in their first game but Linden Technical Institute defeated Linden Foundation Secondary 33-28 and Mackenzie High bounced back to sail past Linden Technical Institute 46-39.
It meant that each school had a win and a loss for three points but on points difference the teams would be separated. This is taken into account to determine the best teams and with Mackenzie High School gaining the highest of 1.078 points considering those points scored for and against, Linden Technical Institute finished second with a 0.973 difference and Linden Foundation Secondary had to settle for third with score of 0.942 to be eliminated.
The final is set for today at the same venue with the third place game starting from 14.00hrs before the final.
