If Pastor Everette Strachan was a little upset of the Zion Baptist Cathedral’s team’s defeat the previous day, the victory of the Abaco Church Sports Association’s All Star team against the Cooper’s Town Sunrise Foundation team put a smile back on his face.
On the evening of September 7, Pastor Strachan again took the road to Cooper’s Town by bus with two of the Abaco Church Sports Association’s All Star teams. Accompanied by Coach Cubel Davis, they were participating in the final championship games of the season.
As previously, the games took place on the basketball court of the Cooper’s Town Community Park.
The two championship games were preceded by a friendly game of twelve and under kids from Cooper’s Town and Spring City.
Cooper’s Town won 11-8.
Next, the junior team of fifteen and under took the court to play a very active game. The Sunrise Foundation’s team took the offensive immediately, leading at the end of the first half. The All Star players were having their fun, it seems, as they reversed the score at the beginning of the second half, never giving their opponent a chance to catch up. The final score was Sunrise 15, All Star 25.
Sherano Wilson took the MVP title.
The third and last game in the open age category was also a great game to watch. The Cooper’s Town team gave it a good try, running with all their might from one end of the court to the next, but the All Star team did not let go, always finding an opening to score.
They won 38 to 29.
Junior Pierre was the MVP in the third game. Mr. Ishmael Morley acted as referee for all three games.
Alvino Sounders, the founder of Sunrise Foundation was waiting with awards for the participants. He handed out medals to all the players and trophies to the team leaders and to the Most Valuable Players.
