On Friday 20 January St Wilfrid’s took on Varndean in the U16 Basketball County Cup Quarter Final.
They quickly found their rhythm after a tight first quarter with Hosana taking control of the game, carrying the ball and providing opportunities for his teammates to score from their excellent positional play. Hosana scored the first 4 points before Varndean hit back.
At the end of the first Quarter the score was 14-12 but this proved to be the only threat of the game as the team moved away by half time with a 34-18 lead.
A now confident St Wilfrid’s attempted more plays and variations in their movement but kept it tight at the back. From the 11 players, 10 players scored with Ziyaam scoring a lovely 3 and Tapiwa hitting a 3 on the buzzer. David, Aslam and Isaac supported Hosana who scored several slam dunks.
The final score was 76-36! Congratulations to the U16 Basketball team for their superb effort!
