MATCH REPORT - 2ND YEAR

On the 31st of January 2019 our second-year boys' basketball team faced off against Bridgetown Vocational College. Our boys put on a great performance that the other team couldn’t handle. The match finished 41-4 to Colaiste Abbain. A great display was put on by all the boys from Colaiste Abbain. This win puts the boys on the top of the table and have won all 5 games and the only other team challenge to them now is Tindell College who have also not lost a game. We wish the boys the best of luck in the future and were sure they will get far in this season.

BASKETBALL GLORY

Coláiste Abbáins 1st and 2nd year basketball teams began their season on Thursday. Both teams travelled to Ramsgrange to play the hosts and also Enniscorthy VEC. First game on court was against Enniscorthy VEC. As expected with the first game of the season the boys started slowly but were showing glimpses of the basketball we will expect to see later in the year. Throughout the game the team kept a lead which they never looked like losing. In the end the recorded an 18 – 13 win.

Our 1st years were now on court against Ramsgrange. We have had a consistent number of 24 students training with this team every week, which made team selection very difficult as the squads are limited to 12 players. With high expectations for the upcoming season the team did not disappoint. With some excellent offensive and defensive displays the team ran out 20 – 0 winners.

Finally our 2nd years were back on court v Ramsgrange in the final game of the day. This was a completely different team as they played a high tempo game from the throw in. taking a commanding 10 -2 lead after the first quarter no one would have seen what was to happen next. Half way through the second quarter a significant part of the floor bubbled up. This meant that due to health and safety the game had to be called there and then. Due to Colaiste Abbain leading 14 -2 we were given the game.

Overall an extremely successful first day of the season winning 3 from 3 which sets us up well for the remainder of the season.
