Macca’s Week Eleven Picks

Another week of games at Level Two, so no uninvited spectators to any games. As usual, we will update this article with live stream links.

It’s playoff time now – with only the #MaccasWT competition still in the regular season this week!

Because of there being no open entry at any of the basketball games this week (starting 15 September), we will endeavour to post any live stream links for the games tonight as we become aware of them.

Games tipping off at 5:15pm (all Whelan games unless noted):

  • St. Margaret’s at Burnside

  • Lincoln at Kaiapoi
  • Villa Maria hosting Hillmorton
  • Rangiora will travel to Middleton Grange for the Division I semi-final (streamed via the SideLine App)
  • Ashburton will play StAC at Avonside in the other Division I semi-final

AT 7:00pm we have the following Thomson Trophy games (unless noted):
