After a successful group stage with three wins and a win in the playoffs, the boys travelled to UCD on Monday, March 13, to play Sandymount Educate Together in the quarter-final. The team got off to a great start with an 8-point lead after the first quarter. In the second quarter, Sandymount came back into it, and for the remainder of the game, it was a very close encounter. Unfortunately, the boys were pipped in the game’s final minute and lost by 2 points.
The team missed some chances to win the game; understandably, the boys were very disappointed. However, they should be very proud of themselves for reaching this stage. Well done to the team for all the great performances and commitment over the year. We look forward to going one step better next year.
Junior Basketball training continues every Thursday at lunchtime.
