The youthful Youth and Sports Eagles, after their impressive showing in the St. Kitts A Division tournament, continued their winning ways in the Malcolm Guishard Basketball league, on the evening of Thursday 18th July.
This time around, they came up against the more seasoned and experienced CG Massives on their home court and guess what? They beat them at their own game!
