"It is a credit to all the children who played. None of them gave in.”

With all three games decided by seven points or less, Dore said it was great to watch the players fight for the wins.

"There were tipping points in every game and they all had to work for what got because the opposition they met were tough but they just kept on going,” he said.

"What I was really proud of was their attitude. It was not easy out there but it did not step them and that is what was good to see.”
