IN a battle between experience and youth, it was experience that triumphed in the Raiwaqa Basketball Association competition on Saturday.

The Raiwaqa Masters team made up of veterans of the sport beat Mystics 38-19 at the Ed's Court in Raiwaqa.

Association president Peniasi Kainamoli who played for the Masters side said Mystics side consisted of secondary school students.

"Today (Saturday) experience won over youth and the oldies proved they still have the skills, speed and strength," he said.

"Also it was a learning experience for the younger players because the Masters showed them the kind of passing that is required to get to the basket faster."

Kainamoli said the Masters side competed in the competition to give the youths of the competition a challenge.

"Competition has been good so far. Last week, we had some defaults but this week, we had full-turnout and the competition also drew a big crowd."

Results: Womens: Iconic Redz 21 Chosen 29, Lady Birds 39 Westy Stripes 24, Dynamic Redz 38 Mystics 8 Sparks 48 Golden Bati 19.

Mens: Mighty Mights 36 MacPacers 30, Boston White 36 Bryce 15, Mystics 19 Raiwaqa Masters 38 Boston Red 18 Warriors 31.
