Glasgow Schools Basketball - Boys League Finals 2014
Thursday 27th March saw Bellahouston Sports Centre as the venue for the second of two annual schools finals for Glasgow. The opening game was the U14 final between Knightswood Secondary and Hillhead High. The game was whole-hearted from both teams with Hillhead finally managing a 63 - 42 win to add to their cup final victory two weeks earlier. This time Dachi Putkaradze succeeded his teamate Omar Murray as Man of the Match.
This game was followed by the U16 final between Lourdes Secondary and Hillhead High. Once again, Lourdes managed the double with a close 54 - 48 win to follow their cup final success against St Mungo's Academy on March 13th. Also repeating was Man of the Match, Jessy Salumi from Lourdes. Hopefully, his mantlepiece can bear the strain.
The third final of the day was the U18 game between Lourdes and Hillhead. Two weeks ago Hillhead had squeaked a victory in overtime to win the Glasgow Cup. This time Lourdes were too strong and behind Man of the Match, Marcus Doyle, they had an impressive 66 - 45 triumph.
Both league and cup competitions organized by Carol McDougall, ran quite smoothly throughout the season and, hopefully, will do so again in 2014/2015 but with more participants.
