Basketball Review – Our First Game


Tuesday October 10th 2017 – this marked the first basketball game of the season for the Concord College U16’s team… And to be completely honest, I thought we played amazing; not only did we pass the ball well, but we also somehow managed to only narrowly lose by 7 points (The final score was 29-36).

By the end of this day we had a few people who weren’t happy, but as a seasoned veteran of this sport (not really!), I told them all that hanging their heads down wouldn’t help us win and that the reason why we lost was that we didn’t train hard enough. Moreover, although we didn’t win, we learned a valuable lesson – that is “don’t expect to win your first game: trust me, you won’t.” To be truthful, I can really see the potential of the team and how our roles fit really well together. I believe that we have a good chance of becoming one of the best teams in the area.

I can say this… as individuals, we may not be the best, but our team strengths legitimately cover our weaknesses.
