On the 15th of October the U19s Basketball team travelled to Le Chéile Secondary School in Tyrrelstown near Blanchardstown to pursue their hopes of winning their second game in a row after they started off strong in their first game. They had no intentions of losing this one.
Collinstown started off strong with early buckets by Harvey Killeen and Conor Nolan, the end of the first quarter seeing Le Chéile take the narrowest lead going into the second quarter. The third quarter is where Collinstown slipped up and allowed Le Chéile to score some easy baskets which left Collinstown down a few points at the end of the quarter. They found a way back into the game but Le Chéile held on to their lead to see out the game and seal the victory with the final score being 57-54.
The lads were disappointed with their performance on the day but they kept their heads up and now are ready to push onto their next game.
On the same day, Collinstown Park’s U16 basketball team also faced Le Chéile Secondary School. Unfortunately Collinstown suffered a disappointing defeat, losing 37-18. The U16 boys tried their hardest throughout the entire match but their efforts were not enough to beat their opponents. Collinstown’s top scorer was Eoighan Barry with 8 points.
Good effort to the boys and better luck next time.
