Coach quote (from assistant coach): "It is a new season and the aim is for the players to be the best that they can be, and the results should follow."

Three Rivers Academy v Holy Trinity School 27/9/17

It was a game of two halves when Three Rivers Academy hosted Holy Trinity School for the first game of the season on Wednesday, resulting in a 56-62 win for the visitors.

Three Rivers controlled the first half, utilising the height of Jeremy Nanton-Hamel and intensity of Jack Fettes to build up a strong lead of 18 points, ending the first half 40-22.

However, Holy Trinity upped the pressure in the third quarter and together with a 12 point unanswered run from the outset,  brought them back to within 2 points by the end of the third period.

The hosts continued to push towards the basket but shots refused to go in, and with the continued intensity from Holy Trinity led by Hilton, they just edged the score line in final period.

Three Rivers player Tristan Smith: "As a new team that has never played together before, we had glimpses of how good we can be, and so will work hard to make sure we can keep that up and be more consistent."

Fettes led the way for Three Rivers with 18 points, alongside Nanton-Hamel (10) and Kane Kenyon (9). Hilton from Holy Trinity made a big impact with his own 18 points, backed up by Roberts and Otor both notching up 12 points apiece.

Three Rivers will be hosting The John Roan School next week, whilst Holy Trinity take a break before meeting Sir Robert Woodard on 18th October.

Three Rivers Academy v John Roan School 4/10/17

Three Rivers Academy bounce back with their first win at Surrey Sports Park 105-80 against the John Roan School on Wednesday.

After a quick start by Three Rivers they took the lead in the first period 26-15, and continued to maintain this momentum for the rest of the game. The John Roan School fought back with some great defence and team play during the second half, trading baskets with Three Rivers throughout the third period, but the hosts were able to hang on to the lead with big scores from Jack Fettes and William Bidi-Lecadouq.

Three Rivers Head Coach Crane: "It was great to see two talented teams play good structured basketball, and mutual respect and sportsmanship showed throughout the game. It was a shame to see three of the John Roan School school players unable to play due to injuries and hope they return to the court soon."

A strong team performance for Three Rivers, with double figures from Kane Kenyon (15), Tristan Smith (13) and Cameron Mitchell (11) adding to the combined 50 points from Fettes and Bidi-Lecadouq. There were powerful appearances from Aboaba (21) and Ayinla (25) for the John Roan School, alongside support from Ogunbona (11).

The John Roan School will next face Holy Trinity in November, whilst Three Rivers travel to Sir Robert Woodard Academy on 11th October.
