A Valiant Fightback – 2nd Yr Boys’ Basketball

2nd Year Boys travelled to their first league game away today to St. Gerald’s of Castlebar. This was the team’s first competitive match and proudly wore their new kit sponsored by First Class Office.
The first two quarters were shaky for St. Nathy’s as they found their feet, not easy under the watchful eyes of St. Gerald’s students who had turned up to support their school. The Castlebar school found themselves increasing their points with little reply from St. Nathy’s in the first quarter. Time to re-group, go over strategy and send some fresh legs on. 
St. Nathy’s began to find their feet and closed the margin in the final two quarters but time was not on their side and unfortunately the win went to St. Gerald’s. 
Noel Regan, Luke Freyne and Anthony Murphy have to be noted for their attention to feedback, quick thinking and keeping a cool head when things looked a little chaotic at times so well done lads. 
Our boys can hold their heads high, they gave it everything and built on the feedback given by Mr. Brennan and Mr. Freeman and have some homework and practice to do before our next games which are looming fast.
They lined up to congratulate the team and coaches at the end showing their maturity and professionalism. 
Lot’s to ponder and do before our next game!
