TENNANT Creek, Elliot and Ali Cu-
rung represented the Barkly region
in the Central Australia Remote
Community Basketball Challenge
at Purkiss Reserve last weekend
organised by NT Government De-
partment of Sport and Recreation.
The other three teams were women from
the MacDonnell Ranges, Central Desert
The girls played a round robin of matches
in which they all played each other once to
see who would make it to the semi-finals
and it was an action packed weekend.
In the end of the round robin, 4 teams,
Tennant Creek, MacDonnell Ranges, Cen-
tral Desert and Ali Curung had made it to
the semi-finals, with Elliot finishing 5th.
In the first semi, Tennant Tigers played the
Laramba Roos (Central Desert) to go into
the final and the Tennant Creek came out
firing and lead from start to finish.
In the other semi-final of Ali Curung and
MacDonnell Ranges, it was a see-sawing
affair, with both teams creating good
chances and scoring points.
Ali Curung lifted late in the game, and
were fouled with only seconds to go to go
to the line.
The first shot was good, however the
second shot just bounced out and the siren
sounded with MacDonnell Ranges winning
by the point.
In the grand final, MacDonnell Ranges
took on the host team, Tennant Tigers.
Straight away the MacYouth Women’s
team took the ball down and scored within
the first 5 seconds and look very command-
In the second half, Tennant Tigers had the
urgency back and hit back on the score-
board by putting 3 points to 0 to make it an
8 to 4 score line with minutes remaining.
The look very promising going forward
and only really need to land two shots to
take it to extra time, however against the
run of play, the MacYouths scored to break
it open and win the game 10 points to 4
to become the Central Australia Remote
Community Basketball Challenge winners.

In the men’s finals it was

the intensity was extreme
with many fouls occurring.
The Triple Zizzles were
missing a couple of players
but stood up strongly and
performed well. In the end
