Basketball Marathon & Fun Day 30th December 2012

What a day we had!

Starting at 9:00 in the morning with our under 12 boys and finishing 12 hours later with some very definitely OVER 12 boys & girls when the Under 18 boys tried to take on the coaches, more of that on later.

Our under 12 boys Hawks kicked the event off and were soon joined by our other under 12 boys Falcons who played each other in a league game. The game was played in great spirit and here are some pictures from the game.

Throughout the rest of the day our under 12 girls, under 14, and under 16 boys each played a minimum of 2 hours each, congratulations to you all, and once again here are a few pictures to remind you of the day.

Finally the Under 18 Boys thought they could show the coaches a thing or two. This however was not the case. After 4 quarters the coaches were winning by 5 points. So after a few oxygen tents were distributed to the ageing  coaches we agreed to give them another chance to redeem themselves. But it was not to be after 2 further quarters the coaches has extended the lead to 10 points.

Nice try guys!

In fairness I’m sure the boys were quite tired after the tournament the previous day and oh yeah the coaches team did have Darragh Verschoyle from Dublin Thunder on their side, but he is a coach!!!!!!

So finally some pictures from that game.

Finally in case you are wondering the Under 18’s are the ones wearing the bibs, and thanks to Laura for all the pictures.
