Both of our girls and boys teams joined the list of teams participating in the Mini Basketball league Finals after comprehensive wins yesterday against Holy Trinity National School, Leopardstown. The challenge facing Saint Mary's was no easy task as Holy Trinity NS went into the game winning all of their games so far.
Our boys team were up first and showed grit determination and a collective team spirit to repel the Holy Trinity attack in the first quarter. Once we weathered the storm, Saint Mary's began to show their quality and scored some very nice team points. Our high tempo passing game along with off the ball running allowed us to come back in the second quarter and see the game out 14-8
Our girls team took their game up another level with moments of quality. Quick dribbling, and consistent passing allowed us to create a lot of scoring chances. The girls showed a fantastic team spirit by coming back from a losing position in the final quarter and winning the game 13-8.
Admirable traits shown by both sides was their teamwork, high energy, discipline and never to give up attitude in tight moments of the game which we should all be proud of. Our progression from the beginning of the season is fantastic to see.
The success of our league performances has now put us through to the finals of the Mini Basketball League season which will take place next Tuesday (21th November). Our boys team will be playing against Burrow NS at 11:30am and our girls team will be playing against Divine Mercy GNS, Lucan at 12:45pm. The game will take place in The National Basketball Arena, Tallaght.
