Friday Night Basketball

Congratulations to the U15 and Open Basketball teams who won the St Mary’s Old Boys’ Friday Night Basketball Competition on the 18th March.

The U15 team performed superbly throughout the rounds and the semi-final. They came up against a very determined and committed Harristown team in the final. Our boys did not have it all their own way, and with a strong defensive effort, Harristown kept the game close. Into the final quarter, scores were close. With two minutes remaining the score was separated by only a point and the boys did their best to keep the ball from Harristown. They wound down the clock and outlasted their opponents, winning by a single point. Well done boys on a fantastic competition. It was a well-deserved win.

In the Open Final, our boys faced Grammar in a repeat from a fortnight earlier. Grammar had proved too strong for Centenary and were determined to make up for their previous loss. The game started with a flurry of fouls, but we settled into our offensive patterns. Our defensive has been the basis of our strong wins and again in this game, the defense was committed and impenetrable. We lead into the half time break. Grammar mounted a strong offensive in the third quarter, cutting our lead and putting pressure on our offensive. The boys held strong and played out the game for a 9 point win.
