Year 11 Basketball Match Report

The Leeds City Academy Year 11 boys’ basketball team showed great skills, teamwork and determination against a hardworking Lawnswood team on Friday night.

Playing on their home court, the LCA starting five came out extremely strong securing several points against Lawnswood without reply early on. Lawnswood showed great resilience and fought hard to get through the LCA defence and were able to retaliate with some points of their own.

As the first quarter came to an end, it was still all to play for but the depth of talent in the LCA bench proved too much for Lawnswood to handle and by halftime LCA had a comfortable lead.

The 3rd and 4th quarter had more great basketball on display from both sides but the LCA squad showed no mercy with a convincing 29-8 win. There were some outstanding skills on show from all the boys alongside some excellent leadership from the experienced members of the team!
