Seniors' basketball team scoops last-minute victory

Published on 17/11/17

There were two brilliant matches last night against St Bede's Catholic College, with our senior team scooping an exciting last minute victory. 

The juniors worked really hard but were beat 34-11 against an impressive team. 

Special mention for Kevin Dos Santos who captained with an outstanding attitude and Year 7 Charlie Wenham - a real talent!  

The seniors seemed to be going the same way, and were 19-9 down at half time. 

We were being out played, but with a change of tactics at half time, we came out as winners, scooping a 30-27 victory. 

Our team employed a strong press, led by the energetic Jamal, and the boys' improved speed started to have an effect. 

With three minutes to go, a lay up and free throw from Jamal put us in the lead for the first time. 

Captain's MVP was Jamal.

Mr Pitt's MVP Yasin Ahmed.
