U14 Boys (Tue 15th January) 

Thomas Keble, Deer Park, Pates and St Peters visited Gloucestershire College, Docks Campus to take part in this years U14 County Basketball Finals.

In the runners up game, Deer Park ran out comfortable winners beating Thomas Keble.

2019 Under 14 Boys County Finals

The final game of the day saw Pates and St Peters compete for the title and the right to progress to the next round of the England Schools National Tournament.

After starting well, St Peters built a small lead only for the taller and physically stronger Pates squad to make a spirited fight back and take control of the game going into the 2nd half.

A couple of substitions from St Peters Head Coach, Jack Staynings saw St Peters pick up their defensive intensity in a full court man to man press, forcing Pates into turnovers and scores at the offensive end.

The final 2 minutes of the game were nailbiting and entertaining, with St Peters managing to build a two point lead which they held onto at the final buzzer, which was followed by some eccentric celebrations from the St Peters squad who were clearly delighted with their accomplishment.

Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to all who have been involved in making this years tournament possible.
