The final set of preliminary games in the Institute of Sports (INSPORTS) Community Mini Basketball Tournament will be played today at the Breezy Castle Sports Complex on Harbour Street in Kingston.

Last weekend, there were six matches - four on Saturday and two on Sunday - in round-robin play at the National Stadium Courts. Majesty Lakers and Rae Town Bulls each scored two victories.

The Lakers registered the most comprehensive win, a crushing 24-0 margin against Delacree Young Stars. In other matches that day, Majesty Lakers netted a second win, eclipsing Rae Town Bulls 10-8 in one of the most competitive matches.

Rae Town Bulls, however, got better results in their other games as they beat Palm Grove 11-7 and turned back Delacree Heats 6-4.

Two games were played on Sunday and Palm Grove pulled off a shocker in the first by hammering Majesty Lakers 20-0. In the other Sunday match, Delacree Heats beat Delacree Young Stars 6-2.

In today's matches, the top two teams on points will meet in the final. Games start at 1 p.m.

Meanwhile, Selassie FC ran out the biggest winners in the Kingston and St Andrew leg of the INSPORTS All-Island Community Football League last weekend.

BIGWIN

Selassie FC thumped Mandela 8-0, while four other teams recorded wins. Uplink Youth slammed Kingston and St Andrew Strikers 4-0, Sandy Park beat Future FC 2-0, Majesty Gardens beat Conscious United 2-0 and Dallas Castle clipped Whitehall FC 1-0.

Meanwhile, Nannyville Youths drew 2-2 with African Gardens and St Albans and Hagley Park played out a similar scoreline.

Also, there were four matches in Westmoreland. Rose Street turned back Grotto 2-0 and Shantilly also won 2-0 over Russia. Stratbogie edged Sholin 1-0, while Innswood and Gully Bank played out a goalless draw.

A total of 33 teams are participating the Westmoreland League, which kicked off last Sunday with the four matches and an opening ceremony at the Llandilo playing field.

Sixteen games will be played tomorrow at four venues - Llandilo, Godfrey Stewart High, Petersfield High and New Market Oval.
