Result: 38-12 (L) v Kellett

On Thursday 5 December, the DC U16 Boys B Team played an away game against Kellett School. The starting lineup for the Cobras consisted of Ben Hallam playing at the point guard position, Lawrence Heggie at the shooting guard position, Steven Dino at small forward with Fionn Tameifuna playing power forward, and Charlie Albrighton playing Centre.

The team was off to a slow start but started picking up the pace, especially on the defensive end, from the 2nd quarter onwards. The final score was 12-38 resulting in a loss for the DC Cobras. The free throw line was a challenge as the team only made 7% of the free throws that we had as a whole. Despite the improvements needed to be made for the team’s offensive game, DC’s defence was great that game. Even though the team lost, James Murphy and Charlie Albrighton kept the glass clean by securing many defensive rebounds while Josh Jones snatched himself plenty of steals. Fionn also got it done with offensive rebounds. Overall the team could have done much better on the offensive end but if that can be improved and the team can keep its defensive pressure high, the team can surely grab more wins.
