2014-02-04 00:00

KEARSNEY College completed a convinving victory over Hilton in a game played in the Midlands over the weekend.

The first quarter of the game saw Hilton having no answer to Kearsney’s tough man-to-man defence, not being able to score a single basket.

Kearsney also struggled to adapt to the Hilton court and missed numerous shots at the basket and were not able to convert on the plethora of possession that they received during the quarter.

Hilton scored their first basket in the second quarter and began to claw their way back into the game. Kearsney, however, changed their defence to a full court press and were able to effect a number of turnovers that allowed them to score some easy baskets.

Hilton continued to struggle and did not have an answer to Kearsney’s defensive pressure.

Kearsney won the game 72-31. —SR.
