Holy Trinity School vs King Henry School

Holy Trinity returned back home and won their second game on the bounce on Wednesday, after a close fought battle with King Henry  that ended 57-50.  
Despite an early lead by King Henry, HTS took the lead which they held for the remainder of the game. All five of the starters scored in the opening quartered, giving the home side a narrow 2 point advantage at 15-13. A number of makeable shoots for both teams rimmed out and some intense defence kept the scores low until a 13-0 run lead by Keiran Lee off the bench gave HTS their biggest lead of the game at 32-17.

However the visitors were not ready to roll over yet and went on a 9-0 burst themselves, 7 of which coming from B Tabansi who finished with 16 for the visitors. The teams traded for the last couple of minutes and Holy Trinity held an 8 point advantage going into the long break. The third quarter could be described as a defensive battle with only 5 combined field goals for either team. With 10 minutes remaining, HTS held a 6 point lead 42-36.

A 9-2 run to start the fourth quarter opened the game up again for Trinity forcing a time out for the visiting side. This spurred on a run of their own and after a 3 pointer from Tom Lappage, King Henry responded with 2 of their own, closing the gap to 6 points at 56-50. Hats then finished the game with 2 stops and sealed it from the line in the dying seconds. Lee was supported well with 11 from Lucinda and 10 from Roberts. The other scoring for King Henry were D.Oputa and M. Fofanah with 12 each. 

Holy trinity will be away next Wednesday to SRWA, while King Henry host HASJW.
