Celts on a win­ning streak

Caernarfon Herald - - SPORT -

CAERNAR­FON Celts Un­der-18 bas­ket­ball team vis­ited Holy­well Cen­tral Venue League last week to play their sec­ond game of the season against the Wrex­ham War­riors.

Fol­low­ing their open­ing win against the Bull­dogs, the Cofis were look­ing to main­tain their good start but their op­po­nents were equally de­ter­mined but gave away a flurry of early fouls in the first quar­ter, which the Celts were able to turn into points, tak­ing a 21-14 lead into the sec­ond quar­ter.

An­other tight quar­ter saw both teams’ press­ing de­fence keep the scor­ing to sin­gle fig­ures with the Celts fin­ish­ing with a slen­der 29-23 lead.

The Celts came out in the third look­ing to break down the War­riors de­fence, led by fast guard Sean Jones, scor­ing nine of his team’s 17 points for the quar­ter. An ex­cel­lent team ef­fort in the last quar­ter se­cured a good win for the Celts against an­other tough ri­val. Fi­nal score: Celts 65-47 War­riors.

MVP for the Celts and top scorer was Sean Jones (23 points).

The Celts se­niors were due to play last night (Tues­day) at Ellesmere Port against reign­ing North Wales cham­pi­ons Brew­ers Bas­ket­ball and the Celts U14’s have their open­ing game on Tues­day, Novem­ber 6, against Mold Magic U14’s.
