On Sunday, Jan. 17, at the Walsh Center gym, the Metro Energy Club in the Gate of Heaven CYO cadet house hoop league eked out a hard-fought three-point victory against the PS Deli Club. In defeating the defending champions, the Metro Energy Club won their ninth straight game and remains undefeated in regular season play. Only three games remain before the second season begins. Metro Energy Club Coach Billy Crowley is pleased with his young hoop warriors.
“What I like about this team is that the older kids cheer on their younger teammates,” Crowley said. “My younger kids play the best defense and try so hard that they actually push the older kids to play smarter and harder that what they normally do.
“As a team,” he concluded, “I love how all the kids talk to each other and try to give advice to each other. They play as a team and really do care. I’m proud of them.”
