U16 & U19 Boy's Basketball
Our Boys' Basketball season kicked off with a tough away fixture versus St. Mark's.
The U16's were up first and saw some fast paced attacking play from both sides with Dylan O'Toole doing well for TCS. Having played against St. Mark's every year the team knew they had a lot of attacking threat and some good shooters. TCS showed some early season rustiness making poor decisions on offence and were punished for their mistakes with St. Mark's winning by 4 points.
Up next were the u19 teams. Equally matched for physicality and skill this game went to and fro for the four quarters with newcomer Tawwab Owolabi doing well for TCS. TCS defended brilliantly for the game but like the u16's lacked composure going forward and eventually lost the battle by a single point.
Plenty to work on for both teams going forward in the league. Next up is our Home matches vs St. Comcille's Knocklyon.
