Basketball V Prosperous

On Thursday 11th of December Caragh National School boys and girls basketball teams faced up to Prosperous National School in a winner takes all battle. Girls had to win to progress to the next round and a win for our boys would mean that they would finish winners of their group. Both games were extremely tight and tense and the result of both hung in the balance right up to the final minutes. Caragh emerged victorious in both games; with the girls winning 14-12 and boys stealing victory with a last gasp throw to seal victory on a score of 16-14.

Most pleasing for the boys team is that each and every boy had a decent part to play in this victory and there was a real team ethos present. Our two teams now carry on to the semi-finals which are two legged affairs taking place in mid January.

Well done to all!
