The buzz of the Byron Beez basketball teams was muffled last weekend by a very determined Grafton Vikings.

Round seven saw the Vikings descend on the Beez’ home base at the Cavanbah Centre with intent and both the local women’s and men’s teams were caught off guard.

The women’s game was exciting and close with scores being tied up in the first three quarters, showing both teams fighting with conviction to take the lead.

Not disgraced at all, the lady Beez went down to the Vikings by five points in the last five minutes of the game, with a score of 27–32.

The Men Beez played a mixed game of brilliance and inexperience.

The Vikings put the first score on the board and led for the rest of the game.

The Beez came back to within four points by three-quarter time but the buzzer saw the Vikings winning the game by 21 points 84–63.

Riley Gollan for the Beez scored 28 points.

Politics is a phenomenal experience. To work harder than you thought possible, to put yourself so absolutely in the public domain full of hope and belief. Then to ask for judgement. It’s high stakes. A kind of ethical and philosophical extreme sport.
