The game started with the visiting team asserting their dominance in transition and going on a 10-3 run as the eagles struggled to find their feet in the opening minutes.

It was only in the 4th minute, the eagles scored on a foul on point guard Peters that sent him to the line for the first points . Eagles made a few to bring the game back but because of the lack transition defence the Eagles finished the first quarter 22-30.

The second quarter saw more of the same as the Eagles struggled to find their offensive rhythm and the visiting team team punished them in transition. Towards the end of the second quarter the home team began to attack the basket with some fiery to cut the Manchester lead to 8 going into the 2nd half .End the first half score was 39-47

The first half scoring was dominated by Sproul and Osarenkhoe for the Eagles. In third quarter the home team made a few mistakes of their own to allow the Visitors to score 28 points in that quarter alone as it was an uphill struggle.

The fourth saw the Eagles try to start the come back on several occasions, but with the eagles missing a lot of open layups. Game ended with a final score of 70-103

U14s Head Coach, Calvin George said: “We played better basketball in the 1st & 2nd  quarters but our lack of defensive intensity and inability to communicate and reflect early on the defensive breakdowns led what happened . A very haphazard 1st quarter that set the tone for the game. We showed promise at several points in the game but our defense let us down today.”
