Year 9 Boys Basketball Team Reach Finals for the First Time Ever!

The Year 9 boys basketball team has successfully reached the County Cup Final after a fantastic win over The Lancaster Academy.

Winning 60-42, the boys proved they deserved their place in the final of the Leicestershire Basketball County Cup competition. Previously the team has reached the quarter final, and then the semi final stage, so reaching the Cup final shows the determination and development of the squad.

From the outset  the boys dominated the game creating a five point leads for themselves by the end of the first quarter. By the end fo the first half they had successfully maintained their 5 point lead with a score of 25 - 20 to CLCC.

After the half time break Lancaster faltered with our team capitalising on this to extend their lead to 7 points by the end of the third quarter. In the final quarter, the boys, now growing in confidence, added to their tally giving a them a commanding 18 point lead.

There were great performances throughout, with everyone on the team contributing to an emphatic 60-42 victory!

The lads now have the final to look forward to against Gartree on 26th March 2019 at the Morning Side Arena (Leicester Riders Arena).
