Basketball: Christ’s vs Churchill

Result: 47-40

The first match of the term saw an unfortunately high number of injuries, illness and weddings affecting our squad. It was pleasing therefore to still get such a large turnout to begin the campaign to win league 3, thanks to everyone who made it.

The match started well with our defence and ball retention proving more effective than the opposition’s. This allowed us to stretch out a lead that, despite a strong Churchill second half comeback lead by their three point shooting centre, held throughout the match. Particular mention should go to the impressive work rate of first timer Bartholomew who repeatedly challenged Churchill’s transition defence and the solid rebounding of Burke and Alex 2.0.
