A tough away tie against two time champs Svyterus was always going to be a tough start for Cats 2. The new Friday night pick up sessions had been well attended and enjoyable, so there was a good buzz going in to the first game. a squad of young guys who had moved through the junior ranks as well joining from Long Rd academy mixed with a few more senior players, and some 1st teasers took to the court at Netherhall.
Down by 13 at the end of the first, Cats rallied to win the 2nd and 3rd quarters to go in to the 4th down by 7. A tight fourth quarter saw Cats draw level but Svyterus hit a number of big three pointers to close out the match by 7.
This was a great effort from the lads and if we compete like it’s throughout the year the season will prove to be both enjoyable and successful
