Junior Beez basketballers were impressive in round three of the Northern Junior League and they have also made the semifinals of the Country Championships held in Newcastle over the long weekend.

Two weekends ago the U/16 Boys Beez travelled to Port Macquarie for the NJL where they won two of their three games, only losing to the hosts by just four points.

Last weekend the team was in Newcastle playing in the Country Championship alongside 117 other teams.

As of The Echo Sport print deadline both the U/16 and U/14 Boys Beez had fought their way into the semifinals.

Full results will be published next week.
