2018 U 19 Southern Conference High School Basketball: STGC(69) Dethrones Calabar(62)
St. George’s College dethroned Calabar, who has held this title for the past three years in the final played on Monday, February 11 at G. C. Foster College.
The teams know each other well as each has inflicted a defeat on each other in the preliminary rounds.
So as expected, it was a ding dong battle as Calabar ended the first half leading by 35- 32.
However in the 3rd quarter, the Saints step up big scoring 24 baskets to CBar’s 10 thanks to STGC’s outstanding captain Samora Williams.
The last quarter was tight and bruising with both teams scoring 13 each in this quarter.
Congrats to the team, Head Coach Clifford Brown, Assistant Coaches Michael Moore and Mrs. N. Powell.
It was a great win for the Blue Knights. Well fought Calabar.
We now go on to the All Island Basketball finals.
