It was another superb week for the first and second year basketball teams with wins in all five matches played in both the All-Ireland Schools ’A’ League and the South Dublin League. The First Years continued their impressive run in the All-Ireland League. Pres were up against St. Benildus. The score at full time was 43-9. Pres’s second years also proved too strong for Benildus beating them 48-4.
It was more of the same last Friday when Pres travelled to Greystones to play East Glendalough in the South Dublin League. Despite a 49-24 deficit heading into the final minutes, East Glendalough never dropped their heads and fought all the way to the end, but they couldn’t deny Pres a fitting win.
Pres’s second years had two matches to play last Friday in the South Dublin League both of which they won. Their match against East Glendalough finished 70-8 and the game with Clonkeen College finished 548 with Jason Curran giving a great performance both offensively and on defence.
