Auchin­leck Academy

Close run in bas­ket­ball cup clash for boys

Ayrshire Post - - INTIMATIONS -

Boys on the Auchin­leck Academy bas­ket­ball team came up short in the lat­est ad­ven­ture on their Scot­tish Cup jour­ney.

They faced Dum­fries Academy, with both sides head­ing into the game with two wins out of two, and the game didn’t dis­ap­point.

Auchin­leck started strong with quick bas­kets for Matthew Mor­ri­son and Michael Miller be­fore Dum­fries found their shoot­ing boots and started to take the lead.

Jor­dan Mouzer and Ben Med­hurst show two huge three point­ers and tied the game just the end of the first half. Early in the 4th quar­ter, Ruar­idh Air­lie got im­por­tant re­bounds at both ends to keep the game close.

With two min­utes to go, the game had just two points in it be­fore Dum­fries cap­i­talised on sloppy passes to win by 6 points, 63- 57.

The Auchin­leck boys never gave up, and were a credit to them­selves and the school. They now have two im­por­tant games against Ste­warton Academy and Wil­liamwood High School to make the quar­ter fi­nals.
