Gotland Island Games 2017

The Gibraltar Basketball Men’s team forced their way through to the final after a feisty battle at the ICA Maxi Arena with a convincing 95-75 win against Guernsey in the semi-final match and now face Cayman Islands tomorrow at 15:45 in search of the gold medal.

Avery competitive match it should be if we look back at their opening match of the tournament in the group stage where Gibraltar managed a 108-105 win after extra time.

This in essence means, Gibraltar adds one more medal to its tally with just to confirm whether its gold or silver.


As for the women’s team they had to be content with 5th place overall.  The two defeats against Gotland and Cayman Island meant they could only play for 5th/6th/7th placing play-off against the other 3rd placed team and Jersey who were 4th in group A.  Gibraltar managed convincing wins against Jersey and Isle of Man to claim the 5th spot in a competition where they felt they could have achieved something more.
