“CAS 1sts dominate GPS and take Peter Yeend Cup”

CAS with the Peter Yeend Cup

It was a special night for the ‘Reds’ of the CAS as they dominated their GPS rivals at the Rosewood Centre at Barker College who on paper were considered to be much stronger. CAS jumped out to an early lead through their relentless defensive pressure and ability to expose GPS on the perimeter with playing fast and attacking the basket. Trinity’s backcourt duo of Tom Buvac (12WJ) and Deonte Williams (12Yo) outclassed their opposites as they combined for 22 points. Theo Kidd (12WJ) also put in a class performance with his presence in the paint and lightning defensive coverage against a tall GPS frontline. Jayden Woods (11Ar) made an instant impact off the bench drilling a ‘3’ and his ability to defend multiple positions. CAS led at every break and pretty much had the game wrapped up at three quarter time with an 18-point buffer (61-43). GPS made a little run in the final period before CAS settled and finished the job with an emphatic victory 71-62.  

In the early match the CAS Seconds fell short to their GPS counterpart by 16 points (59-75). Trinity’s James Andrews (11La) was one of the Reds best dropping in 11 points and constantly giving GPS headaches with his physical play at both ends of the court. Also putting in a solid performance was Jamie Christopoulos (12Ar) who battled diligently against GPS’ tall timber.

In another positive for the Trinity Basketball program Tom Buvac was selected in the NSW under 20 Team that will participate at the Australian Championships in Mckay early next in Term 2.
