A dominant display from RPA's Year 8/9 basketball team over an inexperienced St Richard Reynolds Catholic College (SRRCC) team as they improved their league record to a perfect 3-0. All credit must go to an inexperienced SRRCC squad who kept going until the final buzzer despite the mounting scoreline.

RPA used their height and power advantage to dominate the boards, creating multiple scoring opportunities and denying SRRCC any time and space to create their own.

Strong performances from Dubin and Dylan as well as some dominant offensive rebounding from Hassan enabled RPA to keep the pressure on.

SRRCC continued working hard until the last without ever losing their shape and discipline. RPA move on to sterner tests in the coming weeks against Twickenham Academy and Christ's School.

Squad: Dubin, Dylan, Arun, Joel, Adam, Nabil, Hassan, Jake.
