1st Year and 2nd year Basketball teams win

Congratulations to our 1st and 2nd year basketball teams and their coaches Ms Murphy and Ms Sweeney who both recorded wins against Colaiste Iosagain, Portarlington today. The 1st year team put in a very strong 1st quarter to lead by 6 at the break and never relinquished the lead, although they were outscored by the visitors in the 3rd quarter. Final Score St Mel’s 23 – Colaistee Iosagain 12.


The 2nd Year team also got off to a strong start leading Portarlington by 5 at the end of the 1st quarter. However the visitors grew in confidence as the game progressed and outscored St Mel’s in the next two quarters to lead by just a point going into the final quarter. St Mel’s finally regained some composure in this final period to edge in front and prevailed in the end on a score of 26 – 22. 


Next game for both teams is against Rathangan in two weeks time.
