Brilliant headline by Newsday ... if that's the sort of vacant reporting we wish to encourage in the coverage of interscholastic sports, particularly in a junior age group.

St Francis pips CIC in Secondary Schools basketball


Rachael Thomspon-King


The two-week break for the Easter vacation did not affect St Francis Boys’ College team as the school, formerly known as Belmont Boys RC Secondary, held off St Mary’s College (CIC), to earn a 63-57 win as action resumed in the Secondary Schools Basketball League North Zone competition.

This was in one of two matches in Under-20 division scheduled on Tuesday afternoon at the Jean Pierre Complex in Mucurapo. In the other match Queen’s Royal College (QRC) got the win after East Mucurapo forfeited, to now sits on top of the B group. In the opening match-up, Success Laventille rebounded from a slow start to beat Woodbrook Secondary, by 23 points (44-21) in an Under-17 division.

St Francis Boys had four players score in double-figures with Israel Daniel and Donte Hazard matching each other with a team-high 16 points, Josiah Superville added 12 and Isaiah Smith poured in 10.

It was no easy task though for the foursome as they were forced to step up their game to contend with likes of Jacoba Benjamin, who notched a match-high 28 points in a match his team trailed at the half, 24-36.

His support came in the form of Evan Trim, who was brutal from beyond the three-point arc, connecting five three-pointers in his 21 points but his team still went under by six points.

The win moved St Francis into second place with six points from three wins from as many matches.

In the U-17 match, play in the first half was relatively even despite Success Laventille holding a four-point (10-6) lead in the low-scoring session against Woodbrook.

However in the second half, Success Laventille’s intensity increased through the offensive presence of Jabari Elder, who lifted his team with his 21 points.

Elder helped his team outscore Woodbrook, 34-15 to claim what turned out to be an easy win.

Action continues today with three match carded at the same venue from noon.

RESULTS

U-20 Boys
St Francis Boys (36) 63 (Israel Daniel 16, Donte Hazard 16, Josiah Superville 12, Isaiah Smith 10) vs CIC (24) 57 (Jacoba Benjamin 28, Evan Trim 21pts (5-3pts).
U-17 Boys
SLSS (10) 44 (Jabari Elder 21, Malique Jacobs 7) vs WSS (6) 21 (Vladimir Griffith 9, Isaiah Thorne 9).
QRC 20 vs East Mucurapo (default) 0

not sure, it could be a combination of things like not enough coaches, funding etc. But although that may be true its normally a shortage of players because in T&T a coach will coach every team in that school.

El Dorado East takes Under-15 opener

East Zone Secondary Schools Basketball League





 LAST season’s Under-15 MVP Jelani Blackett scored a match-high 20 points, leading El Dorado East to a comfortable 43-19 victory over Holy Cross College in both team’s opening Under-15 fixture of the East Zone Secondary Schools Basketball League in Maloney, yesterday.

After both teams started their season debut with caution, it took a quick second quarter surge to get El Dorado East’s ball rolling.

They never relinquished the lead. They took complete control by the third, through Blackett’s efforts and that of Jadon Roberts, both of whom were named MVPs for their efforts following the match.

Blackett was also named an MVP when El Dorado East’s Under-20 outfit won their season-opener 37-29 against St George’s College earlier this week.

Holy Cross, led by last season’s most improved player Luke Waldron, endured a slow start but will be eager to rebound in their next fixture in two weeks’ time.

There was one other fixture carded for yesterday – Mount Hope Secondary versus El Dorado West in the Under-15 division. The match, however,was postponed.

On Thursday, Hillview recovered from their opening-day loss to Tunapuna Secondary, by trouncing San Juan North 52-16, while the Girls’ Under-20 division commenced with Manzanilla Secondary scraping past Bishop Anstey 19-18.

Alysa Connelly, later adjudged the Manzanilla’s MVP, incredibly scored all 19 points.

Meanwhile, in other results from matches played earlier this week, Five Rivers Secondary got past Arima Central 46-8, while Holy Cross College edged Trinity College East 49-48.
