Report by Mr Harrison 

RPA's youngest batch of basketballers made it two wins out of two with an impressive display against Christ's.

RPA quickly took a firm control of the game by scoring their first four baskets to take an 8-0 lead. Christ's had no answer for the accuracy of RPA's shooting as the first quarter ended with RPA 10-2 up.

Some powerful rebounding from Joao and Finn H in the second quarter allowed RPA to maintain control. Score at the half 18-4 to RPA.

The third quarter saw Christ's tighten up defensively and match RPA physically for the first time. All credit to Christ's who managed to draw the quarter 6-6 to take the score to 24-10.

RPA stepped it up again in the fourth quarter to quash any hopes of a Christ's comeback. Jaiden again leading the scoring with a superb three-pointer.

A fantastic performance from the squad, Teddington are up next in what will be RPA's toughest test to date.

Squad: Jaiden, Finn H, Nikola, Joao, Stanley, John, Tom.
