U11 Centurions

U11 tipped of their game versus UCD straight after Dynamites on Saturday morning. With only 7 players available, due to illness and unavailability everyone stepped up and played a great game. These guys are really working hard on their fundamentals and play each game with joy and a smile on their face.  There is always room for more players so anyone born in 2006 or 2007 and would like to join please get in Contact with Coach Mark.

This week TOTW is our U13 Centurions

U13 boys who are going through a rough patch with Injuries (get well soon Nathan and Colin) travelled out to St Davids with only 7 players. The fact that 3 of these are U12 does not hold this team back. Oblates jumped out to a 10 point lead in the first quarter, however back came Killester and closed the gap in the second. Oblates ahead by 5 with 30 seconds to go Killester attempted a come back getting back to within 1 with 4 seconds left. However Oblates made their free throws and closed out the game with a 3 point victory. Special mention for Ulysses made his Centurion debut in this game and even managed to score a basket. Again anyone who was born in 2004 or 2005 and is interested in joining please contact Coach Mark.
