TCS Basketball Update 2018

The second half of the TCS Basketball calendar got underway yesterday and it was the turn of the 1st and 2nd Year Boy's teams.  Both teams are in Pool 4 of the South Dublin League and there are no easy groups.

The 2nd years were up first against St. Mark's.  This game was nip and tuck the whole way, with only 3 points between the teams in the end, Mark's taking this win.  Lots of positives from the TCS boys, definitely in a strong position compete well this year.

Next up were the 1st year boys against Old Bawn.  The league has started early this year and so there hasn't been many training sessions for our lads.  With that being said they worked unbelievably hard to stay with a strong Old Bawn team that had a player selected for the Dublin team.  Lots of positives from the lads first ever competitive match, great attitude and work rate, plenty to build on.  Old Bawn winning this one well in the end.

Next up we are Home to Col. Cois Life, Wednesday 31st Jan.
