St Pats' basketball team narrowly lost their North Dublin league final in a dramatic match at the National Basketball Arena (NBA), Tallaght, on Thursday 3rd December. In the end, a strong and disciplined St Bridget's NS, Killester team came out winners, 21-17, but only after defending wave after wave of attacks and near misses from the Pats boys. Urged on by the sixth and third classes, who had come to support them, the St Pats lads never gave up and gave a great display of skill and commitment. Rovic Quiroz, Jamie McCarville, Leo Fay, Aaron Scanlon, Ryan Fitzgerald and Kieron Kelly all managed to net baskets for St Pat's but in truth everyone played their part and thoroughly enjoyed a great day out at the NBA.
