2nd Year Boys Basketball

Our 2nd year boys faced a very physical Colaiste Naomh Cormac side and both teams were neck and neck for the entire game, it went into extra time three times. Our boys held their nerve and their skill shone through in the end with a winning three pointer from Cathal O’Brien. Well done boys.
