LONDON, ON – With the U14 Boys Ontario Cup 2017 D1 title on the line the two teams anticipated to meet in the final went head to head between Brampton’s Team Breakdown (seeded fourth) and Durham City United (seeded second).

Breakdown took an early lead in the game but Durham City began to apply pressure on defence that spurred a 7-0 run led by Isaiah Caesar. The pressure defence by DCBA made it difficult for Breakdown to even bring the ball up the court without falling into a trap and getting the ball stolen and Durham took a 20-18 lead after the first frame.

To open the second quarter Durham City put it all together using their defence to fuel their offence in transition and they reeled off an 11-0 run and never looked back.

“I think our energy just picked up overall and you get rid of the first quarter jitters and you realize it’s just time to start playing,” said Durham City head coach Nkosi Adams.

Breakdown was able to stay in the game with their mix of height and athleticism and keep every attempt at the rim from being a good look. This was especially true for D’Angelo Cortese-Affoon who slammed the first dunk of his career the day before, but the fast pace favoured Durham City United who took a 43-27 lead into halftime.

Good post moves by Durham City’s David Ononiwu who finished with 14 points and overall effort from Isaiah Adams who scored a game-high 15 helped their team maintain the lead through the second half and towards the gold medal by a final score of 76-64.

“I think we definitely accomplished our goal just from every day in practice going from 6 to 8 every day to get to this point,” said Jaden Clayton after scoring 11 points in the final. “I think we worked harder than any other team in the province and no other teams could touch us at all just the amount of hard work and effort we put into the season.”

The effort spanned longer than just the season at hand and years of work were celebrated by coach Adams; “Our team’s been together for four or five years already so you definitely see the consistency. Really proud of them. Breakdown played a great game and came back but these guys showed they had the mental toughness to withstand it.”
