Bens pay dearly for being over-confident
|Over confidence coupled with few mistakes at the dying stages of the game, deprived Bens the opportunity of winning the finals of the U17 All Island Inter Schools Basketball Tournament 2011 worked off at St. Benedict’s College Courts today (11th May) when Colombo International School (Kandy) edged out St. Benedicts College by the smallest margin of 61 points to 60.|
Bens dominated the game from the word ‘go’ and were leading right through until the last few minutes where CIS overpowered the Bens to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.
Benedictines had a healthy lead of 31 points to 23 at half time and were leading 59 to 55 just minutes before the final whistle with Skipper Fredrick Moraes and Praveen Ganlath excelling for the Bens.
A large crowd including De La Salle Brothers, Students, Old Boys, Parents, Teachers and Well-wishers were gathered to witness an enthralling final.
Our sincere thanks to the Old Bens’ – Victoria Branch in Australia for coming forward to sponsor the Tournament which was hosted by St. Benedicts College.
