St. Anthony’s Secondary School (SASS) claimed their first ever title on Wednesday in the Junior boy’s division of the Cool and Smooth Inter-School Basketball league.
SASS edged out former league champions, Clare Hall Secondary School (CHSS), 28-26, to hoist the coveted playoffs trophy, winning the series 2-1.
The first-time champions who were 1-0 down, rallied on Tuesday and Wednesday to win back-to-back games and stun the former league champs.
It was a sea-saw battle at the JSC Sports Complex as both teams traded baskets to take the lead.
CHSS had a small edge over SASS, leading by one point in the dying seconds of the match. But, with a late three-point bomber by Ronde Davis, son of national legend Eustace “Spud” Davis, SASS sent a dagger into the hearts of the Clare Hall men as he hit the game-winning basket.
“I just tried to get the win for my team so when I saw I was open for the shot, I took it,” said Davis who ended the encounter with nine points.
Jevonte Valerie, who was named the Playoffs MVP, ended the match with 12 points.
“I feel really great to not only win a championship but to be named the MVP. This will be a moment I will never forget,” he said.
Lucaso Brumant Jr sank 10 points for CHSS while teammate, Adrian Carniege chipped in with 9 points.
