Senior Basketball Team- Game 1

Cuman na mBunscol- NETNS Senior Basketball


On Friday, the senior basketball teams had their very first Cuman na mBunscol games in Scoil Bhríde, Athgarvan.

The boys were up first at 11am as they took on a very strong side. I the first half, the boys were adjusting to the tempo of the game. The boys made some great blocks, rebounds and showed some great team work by passing the ball around to try get the good look.

The boys put in a great effort throughout the 4 quarters but unfortunately Scoil Bhríde’s boys had more luck at the basket with a final score of 25- 8 points.

The senior girls team played shortly after and got a good warm up in before the game. The girls started out strong with some really great passing and seeking out the free player to take the best shot. The girls hustled every ball but at times Scoil Bhríde got a fast break and it lead to an easy basket.

The game was very close and it was a hard one to call at the end of the 3rd quarter. It was a fast paced game and some of the girls were getting tired. Subsitutions came in and added greatly to the game. Unfortunately, N.E.T.N.S fell short by 4 baskets in the end.

Overall, the boys and girls showed great team spirit. They had fun and enjoyed the day out. There is plenty more in them and they look forward to their next game that will be arranged in the coming days.
