BASKETBALL: It was the perfect Central District Carnival for the Ray Scott-coached under-14 girl's team.

Scott's troops produced its best until last against the Rockhampton 1 side in which Erin Harvey's 40 points helped Gladstone to a 72-67 win and make it an unblemished four from four wins.

While Erin was the star of the show with her footwork a treat to watch on her way to the basket. But what else was impressive was her ability to find a free player inside the key when defenders are drawn to her.

Gallery here:

Gladstone cleaned up against Bundaberg (72-38) and back-to-back 80-12 and 87-19 thrashings against Rocky's second-string team before Sunday's epic clash.

Erin had great support from Alahnie Rozycki and Eli Walsh, but even that can be argued in a carnival where the other players chipped in.

U14 boy's coach Ashley Wilmot said his team will come away a better side for the next CDC event in Emerald on April 28-28.

His team finished with a 2-2 record which included wins against Hervey Bay and Rocky 2.

But the two losses against Rock's first team and Bundaberg is where Wilmot believes his players will learn most from.

"The first game against Rocky 1 we led by five points at quarter-time and down by 10 at half-time," he said.

"We then lost our way and were taken out of our offensive structures."

But on the flip side were the overall efforts of talls Cooper Rhodes and Josh Morfey and point guard Benji Bell.

"We'll work on some of our things that need working on at training ahead of the next CDC," Wilmot said.

Gladstone's U12 girl's and boy's teams came away without wins, but improved the longer the carnival went.

The girls were desperately unlucky in 33-23 and 36-33 defeats against Emerald while the boys showed fight on the final day of competition.
