Maranoa turn up the Heat at Dalby Carnival

BASKETBALL: Roma Heat punched above their weight at the Dalby Carnival last weekend, posting three wins and two losses despite only having a single reserve for each game.

The Heat managed to make the B-grade final against a much taller and deeper Pittsworth, going down 60-35 in the final.

Captain Matt Gane said the team performed admirably given the difficult set of circumstances they were playing under.

"Although we were very undermanned for the carnival, players lifted under the pressure and we were able to make the the final,” Gane said.

"Each year these guys get better and better and I was particularly impressed with high school guys who showed a lot of composure.

"We have a great rivalry between Roma and Pittsworth in the basketball.

"There were plenty of guys diving for the ball and coming up with some big plays, but in the end they were too deep on the bench.”
