Old Bens in thrilling win over Navy
|An enthralling contest was witnessed in the match between Old Benedictines Sports Club and Sri Lanka Navy “A” where Old Benedictines beat the sailors by 55 points to 51 after close fight in the Carlton Cup 2012 Basketball match played at Henry Pedris Courts.|
Both teams were looking to challenge each other and quality basketball was displayed throughout the game. The main drawback was the rainy situation which affected the play. Old Benedictines, who were leading 26 points to 18 at half time, maintained their dominance in the latter parts of the match posing much pressure towards the Sailors.
The Sailors could have won the match if they had made use of the opportunities which they failed to grasp. However, Old Benedictines were lucky enough to outplay the gallant Sri Lanka Navy ‘A’ team by four points as they made good use of the opportunities that came their way.
For the winners, Clinton Stallon was the highest points scorer with17 points while M.A.T.S.Bandara was the main contributor with 15 points for Sri Lanka Navy ‘A’ team.
The Old Bens are among the favourites to win the ‘A’ division title this year and we wish them good luck in their advance to the title.
