St. Pat’s S.C, 24-23 De La Salle Dundalk
On Friday last the First Year Basketball team travelled to Dundalk Sports Complex with coaches Mr. Kenny and Mr.Bellew where they were to play their Regional Final. St. Pat’s faced De La Salle Dundalk in the final and the two teams were well matched with both sides finding it tough to establish a comfortable lead throughout. Having found themselves on the back-foot St. Pat’s fought hard on the court and brought the game back from the brink. With less than 40 seconds on the clock St. Pat’s came from being one point down to two points ahead following a three-pointer from Ethan McBride.
Tensions ran high as De La Salle were awarded two free shots in the dying seconds of the game. De La Salle scored the first but failed to score the second basket leaving St.Pat’s to take the Regional Final Trophy back to Navan.
