The junior Byron Beez had a great weekend in round three of the Northern Junior League Basketball Competition held in Port Macquarie last weekend.

The U/14 Beez girls went undefeated for the weekend winning four out of four, including a solid 25 point win over the undefeated Coffs Harbour Suns.

The U/16 Beez girls defeated Coffs Harbour and Tamworth; however, their effort in the game against Port Macquarie saw them trailing by a single point with only a few minutes to go.

Port snuck away at the end and the Beez went down by a very respectable 10 points.

The U/14 Beez boys team  won three out of four with their only loss to Port right on the buzzer.
