As promised in the previous Hub Article, we would like to update you about the KS3 Boys’ basketball.
Team: KS3 Boys’ V Canadian International School Hanoi (CISH)
Date match was played: 04/10/19
The match started very competitively. Both teams were working hard to find a gap in the other team’s defense, applying as much pressure as possible. It was CISH who were the more successful after the first quarter, taking the lead of BVIS 2 – 8 CISH.
The second quarter started in much the same way as the first: extremely competitively. Both sides were working hard, applying as much pressure on each other as possible. With several fouls from both sides, two time-outs and various substitutions, both teams knew this was going to be the hardest match they have faced this season. At the end of the second quarter it finished BVIS 7 – 12 CISH.
BVIS continued to fight back against CISH but we knew, as a squad, this was the hardest match we have been part of. Our captain Anh Duc was carrying the team forward, encouraging all his players to come together and work the hardest they ever have. Even with 4 points of his own this quarter it was not enough as the third quarter finished BVIS 11 – 16 CISH.
The fourth and final quarter saw each member of the BVIS squad work together, encouragement from the bench, leadership on the court and a determination to win. The squad really came together and pulled back the match to 16 – 16 with three minutes to play. CISH were awarded two free throws due to a foul by one of the BVIS players. After being successful with one of these shots it was BVIS 16 – 17 CISH with two minutes left to play. After a time-out, re-group and a calming of the nerves, BVIS went back to the court and successfully scored a two point lay-up, taking the score to BVIS 18 – 17 CISH. BVIS put 100% effort to hold on to this lead for final next minute and were successful in doing so. The match finished BVIS 18 – 17 CISH; an exciting win from an excellent team performance. Man of the Match: our captain, Anh Duc.
