U15 Kids Showcase Impressive Basketball Skills
The Abaknon Sports League recently held a basketball skills clinic in Capul followed by exhibition matches among player under 15 years old. Three teams went thru knock-out matches: Brgy. 5, Brgy 3&4 and the Manila-based selection.
The games turned out to be truly exciting – as the players wowed the crowd with skills far beyond their years. In fact, some of the players have already represented the province of Northern Samar in the EVRAA. That indeed was confirmation of the extra-ordinary talent that they have honed.
All three matches proved to be exciting and closely-fought but at the end of the skirmishes, the Manila-based basketeers showed superior talent and composure and emerged as winner. But that came in the face of a real scare from the straight-shooting gunners of Brgy. 3&4 who peppered the basket with flawless three-pointers.
If the level of skills displayed by the players were an indication of how much better they could become, then there is no doubt that they will follow the footsteps of Joey Mente and be a part of the PBA or any other national league in the future. Abaknons will then be very proud.
