CLS reigning LISBA champions
The u18 basketball team managed to reach the LISBA playoff finals with a perfect record. The team had won eight out of eight matches in the regular season and were willing to put in their all to win the next two. The weight of being top seed can be tough to carry, so it was imperative that the team were not complacent.
CLS started their semi-final scoring with ease and locking down their opposition at the defensive end. They moved the ball well to keep the scoreboard ticking over and managed to beat KCS to secure a 55-35 win and book a well-deserved place in the final against Alleyn’s.
In the final, Alleyn’s started very well – still on a high after their dramatic semi-final win. CLS knew they had a tough game ahead of them and their response was emphatic –a relentless effort at both ends of the floor. With one hand on the trophy, the team continued to up their game and were crowned LISBA champions with a 92-55 victory.
To finish a LISBA season undefeated is no mean feat and congratulations should go to every player who played their part in such a remarkable season. Well done to all those players involved!
