Copleston High School vs SEEVIC College

Copleston Sixth Form were the comfortable winners in their Wednesday afternoon EABL contest as they took on SEEVIC College at Copleston Centre.

Copleston flew out the blocks with a 15-0 start, after the strong half court defence and impressive offence in transition. Copleston would finish the quarter 34-17 ahead and though SEEVIC would steady the ship to indeed win a low scoring second quarter, Copleston were never in trouble of losing the game and put together multiple runs in the second half to secure the 97-51 victory.

Veron Eze led Copleston in scoring with a big 29 point outing, while Ethan Price, who was the tallest player in the court and fresh off a player of the week performance last week, added 24. The Copleston first year pair have impressed throughout the year and will be a key component to Copleston’s ambitions of a late season playoff push. SEEVIC battled throughout and were led by Tendo Meseorisa with 15 who was particularly impressive in attacking the rim, while big man Harry Gent added 10 points for the away side.

“I thought the boys put in a composed and professional performance today. Every time there was a dip in tempo,they responded with offensive outbursts. Everyone played good minutes, and that’s key to see what the bench are able to give us going into some tough games in the coming weeks,” said Copleston Coach Adam Robinson.

“Huge credit goes to SEEVIC, as they played hard throughout, and have no doubt improved since earlier in the season. But today was about our performance, and making sure we are prepared for one last push. The playoff situation is still wide open, and if we compete like this, we have every chance to be in the post season conversation”.

Copleston will take their 8-6 record away next week as they travel to Canterbury next week while SEEVIC are away to Oaklands.
