On Saturday, the 15th of October 2022, the Firsts from Trinity Grammar Preparatory School and Trinity Grammar Junior School faced each other in a close contested match in The Prep School Gymnasium. The friendly, fiery rivalry between the schools made the match exciting and tight. The referee blew his whistle and both teams huddled towards their coach for instructions on the game. Players moved onto the court where the first piece of action would take place. Tip off went to Junior School and the crowd roared and rumbled to every point, steal, block or shot that occurred but the first points were awarded to Prep School. Prep School had a good start of 6-0 then the Junior School anticipated and got their first points to open up their scoring from close range. At 8-2 Junior School called a time out. Both teams went over their performance and tactics. The first half was close at 14 – 14 and the biggest lead during the half was 6 ahead in favor of Prep. The end of the half ended with a score from Junior School. After halftime, both teams were neck and neck. Halftime allowed both teams to go over and make changes to their cohesiveness as a team and to go over their game plan for the second half. The second half felt like a lifetime and seconds felt like hours for the players as the perfect match ups made it impeccably hard for players to score. The real battle was in the paint and even the smallest players were a threat, as both teams had guarded the opposing team like their lives depended on it and managed to steal the ball or be awarded with a jump ball. Many points had been scored on fast breaks and the defense from each and every player was astonishing. Through the game, the score had been consistent with Prep scoring then Junior scoring, but Prep started to slowly gain a lead when a Prep player had been fouled when taking a layup and got scored it in causing 2 points and a chance to get a three point play. Although Prep did not score the extra point, they managed to steal the ball and score causing a 4-point lead. Players from both teams were exhausted and dripping with hard earned sweat but were not willing to give up points without a fight. With two minutes remaining in the last half, Junior School tried to close the score differential from 28 – 24 by making a steal although they turned up empty. Shots were made and balls were stolen from both sides of the court. With 30 seconds left to play in this unresolved game, Prep snagged 4 points to secure a tight win. The final score was 34 – 27 with Prep claiming the win.
