The Basketball Men’s team opened their campaign with a good victory against Depiro in the Shield competition of the 2nd Division. Depiro is a much better team with young and promising players on their roster. Phoenix’s players took a 10 point lead in the second quarter and they managed to control it till the end. Depiro made several attempts to claw back to the game, with accurate shooting and fast paced game but our defence was strong and managed to hit with accurate shooting and efficient counter attacks. We look forward at similar performances in the near future and a big well done to coach Kevin Zammit and his boys for the positive start of the season.
In the meantime here are the weekend’s fixtures. A highlight of this weekend is the derby match between our two volleyball teams, Phoenix Allcare and Phoenix Young Stars. The game will be played on Sunday at 4pm at University Sports Hall and is one not to be missed.
