WEEKEND RESULTS - January 29th

5th/6th Grade Boys

Despite being down many players, the boys pulled a win against St Rita at their home game last night. 41-38. Go Cougars!

RECAP: 8th Grade Girls

The 8th grade girls Basketball team won 22 to 10 against St. Joseph this weekend. With the 2 starting point guards not present for the game, the team stepped up their offense and defense and never lost the lead. They made significant improvements in distributing / passing the ball to all the players as well as points contribution from more and more players. We noticed a large number of parents and supporters at the game. Thank you.

WEEKEND RESULTS - January 29th

All 3 teams played with honor, here is the recap of the weekend events.

4th/5th Grade Girls

The 4th/5th grade girls started the game off slowly. By half time, they were able to get off the court with a tie. Unfortunately, the second half proved difficult as the other team was able to make some great shots and get those extra baskets they needed to win. Our cougars have been showing great hustle on the court and have been improving weekly. We are proud of the effort they put out on the court. Let’s get them next week, cougars! 

5th/6th Grade Boys

The 5th/6th grade boys had a tough challenge v. St. Theresa over the weekend. Despite the score, our boys played hard down to the final whistle.  We are very proud of them and their efforts. Better luck this weekend at home v. St. Rita at 5pm.

RECAP: 8th Grade Girls

Recap: 8th Girls Cougars started out slow, went on a run against St. Mary's but could not overcome St. Mary's lead. Cougars were able to have majority of the team contribute in scoring. It was one of those games where shots were just not falling in. However, cougars tried hard and scored 16 points. They are improving especially at playing girl to girl defense. Go Cougars!

WEEKEND RESULTS - January 22nd

5th Grade Girls v. St. Mary

St. Anthony took control of the 1st. half from the tip off, going down the court to score the first basket.  The girls moved the ball well up and down the court helping each other from getting in trouble, leading at halftime 12-4.  Unfortunately our girls were not able to hold on to that lead and fell 16-14 but not before putting up a strong effort to hold off St. Mary's surge to come back and win with some last minute basket. Great job St. Anthony girls!

 

Next week's game is at home court (St. Anthony Gym) versus Nativity on 1/29/22 @ 1:15pm

6th Grade boys v. St. Timothy

Tough last second loss for these boys who fought back hard after going down 12 pts. early in the game. St. Timothy started the game really aggressive with a full court press and did not let up. This rattled St. Anthony but didn't scare them.  The St. Anthony boys matched the aggressive defense with some great ball movement and hustle up and down the court to take the lead just before the half.  St. Anthony and St. Timothy traded buckets, steals and fouls to keep parents on the edge of their seats throughout the entire 2nd half.  The intensity of the game picked up as the refs called for a running clock with only 4 minutes remaining. St. Anthony went up by 1 pt on a free throw but with only 20 secs. left on the clock St. Timothy was able to get a last second shot to end the game.  Great job fighting back and making it an exciting game, boys.

 

Next week's game is at St. Leo versus St. Theresa on 1/29/22 @ 2:15pm.

RECAP: 8th Grade Girls

In December, the 8th Grade Girls played 4 tough teams and had a record of 2-2 during pre-season.

 

The Cougars lost their very first game to St. Mark 28 to 16 but won against St. Joseph (29 to 20) and St. Timothy (18 -16).

The Cougars did lose the final game against Queen of Apostles (24 to 22). The last two pre-season games went down to the very last 2 minutes against St. Joseph and Queen of Apostles.

 

On January 22, 2022, the Cougars played St. Louis and had a slow start. They were behind the entire game until the very last minute where they made a key free throw taking the lead. However, because of a 3 pointer from St. Louis Cougars fell 16 to 15. It was a very competitive game.
