The championship basketball game of the Summer League between Change Ministry and Abaco Central High School in the 16 to 19 age group had every one held in suspense starting in the third quarter. It ended with Abaco Central High School’s victory by two points. They beat Change Ministries’ team 47 - 45.
The Committee Members of the Abaco Church Sporting Association held a meeting to schedule the beginning of its basketball season, now in its third year.
According to Abaco Church Sports Association President Everette Strachan, the idea for a church league for young people developed out of a Round Robin Basketball Tournament for men that was held in May 2013. Although Pastor Stephen Knowles of Strong Tower Community Church was first appointed vice president because of his great responsibility as the president of the Abaco Christian Council, the role was then shared between Cubell Davis Jr. and Ishmael “Stretch” Morley, who also serves as the public relations officer. Gilbert Davis in charge of the league’s referees, Davis Jr. is also the treasurer, and Karen Rolle is the secretary.
Championship games marking the end of the basketball season of the Abaco Church Sports Association, took place on Friday September 6 at the Zion Baptist Cathedral’s basketball court. Only the best teams of the league were left, so the games were avidly disputed by the participating teams, with all the players trying their best to win. Needless to say that it made it interesting for the fans who came to watch, cheering and booing depending on who scored the baskets.
During the last two weekends of August, the Zion Baptist Cathedral’s basketball court was bustling with people- players, coaches and local supporters- who had come to play or watch the end of the season elimination games. Three games were played in the evening of August 24.
