AFTER a run of two games without a win St Alban’s were a side revived after they convincingly beat the visiting Jeppe Boys’ High School at the weekend.

Joseph Mosata, who finished the game with six points, Nkanyiso Tshwete and Hwan-hee Lee all came from the junior teams were promoted into the senior team and the trio used the opportunity they were afforded well and surely did enough to warrant a permanent stay in the side for future games. St Alban’s got the better of the Johannesburg school for the second time after beating them again at home. It was all St Alban’s in the first quarter as they took charge of the game, the hosts new look side was more offensive and had physical grunt in defence, as they took the game to the visitors. St Alban’s looked worthy of their 7-2 lead at the end of the first quarter.

In the second quarter the hosts made use of their home court advantage and it was shooting guard Anthony Dinham who led his school in scoring this period. Dinham looked have found his range in shooting and was driving in more to score points to end the second quarter with eight points and the St Alban’s team took 26-14.

Coming into the third quarter with a twelve point lead the hosts upped the ante, with usual starting point guard Rhys Carolissen, who started the game from the bench ending as the top scorer with four points. St Alban’s were in the drivers seat and with victory looking in sight and the visitors looking like they had little or no fight left in them the hosts lead this quarter 40-27.

In the last quarter it was Dinham again who lead the hosts in scoring with six points to end a the game with 16 points, and guard Bame Nkate chipped in with four points in this period for the hosts to walk away with a massive 27 point victory.
