Basketball Spirit Game

 

Les Lynx du Lycée Français de New York recevait les Shark de la French American School of New York ce vendredi en Basketball. Nos Varsity Girls et Boys ont brillé par leur talent et leur énergie! Retour en images sur ces deux rencontres.

L’année a commencé sur les chapeaux de roues pour les Lynx au Basketball! Le Lycée recevait la FASNY ce vendredi 6 janvier et que cela soit pour les Varsity Girls ou les Varsity Boys l’équilibre des force pourrait se résumer en un mot: Domination.

Dès les premières minutes de jeu, les Varsity Girls du LFNY donnent le ton. Elles occupent le terrain aussi bien en défense qu’à l’attaque et le premier quart s’achève sur le score plus qu’honorable de 8-1 pour les Lynx.

Après la pause, les Girls de la FASNY semblent s’être reprises. Le jeu est plus collectif et plus précis, mais une fois de plus, rien n’y fait, les joueuses du LFNY gardent une sérieuse avance: 26 -14.

La fatigue se fait sentir dans le dernier quart temps, surtout du côté des Lynx. Les Shark réduisent l’écart mais c’est déjà trop tard, les Lynx ont pris le large. Score Final 35 à 27!

Même son de cloche chez les Boys qui attaquent leur match très très fort. Ils ne semblent pas vouloir en garder pour plus tard! Le premier quart s’achève sur le score sans appel de 21 à 6 pour les Lynx.

Vous vouliez souffler un peu? Il faudra repasser un peu plus tard! Nos Lynx creusent encore l’écart, et le public venu nombreux pour soutenir le LFNY en redemande! 36-12 à la pause.

Après la pause le public s’est un peu parsemé comme si les dés étaient déjà lancés. L’écart se réduit un petit peu mais d’un cheveu. L’issue semble inéluctable. 45-23 dans le troisième quart.

Dans la dernière manche, gros coup de fatigue pour les deux équipes. L’écart se maintient et le score final se passerait presque de commentaires: 51 à 28 pour les Lynx!

Bravo à nos Varsity Girls et à nos Varsity Boys d’avoir si bien représenté les couleurs du LFNY, toujours avec beaucoup de fairplay!

The Lynx of the Lycée Français de New York welcomed the Sharks of the French American School of New York on Friday in Basketball. Our Varsity Girls and Boys teams showed much talent and energy! Take a look.

Lynx basketball got off to a flying start in 2017! The Lycée welcomed FASNY on Friday, January 6, and whether for the Varsity Girls team or Varsity Boys Teams, the Lynx play can only be described in one word: domination.

From the first minutes of play, LFNY Varsity Girls set the tone.  They dominated the court in offense and defense, taking an honorable 8-1 lead by the end of the first quarter.

20170106_lfnybasketball_girls_initialselects_0006In the second quarter, the Sharks got their groove back, but not enough to take the lead. Indeed, there was fish on the menu at the Lycée on Friday– a telltale sign… By halftime, the Lynx were in the lead, 18-8.

After the break, the FASNY Girls Team seemed back on track. The Sharks team had sharpened, with noticeably stronger teamwork over all.  It was not enough. The Lynx kept the lead: 26-14.

Fatigue showed itself in the fourth quarter, especially on the Lynx. The Sharks  began to close the lead. It was too late. The gap was too wide. Final score: 35-27!

The LFNY Boys team kept the tone, decidedly on the attack as the Varsity Boys game started. They did not hold back! The first quarter ended: 21-6 in favor of the Lynx.

Want to take a breather? You’ll have to wait… Our Lynx kept their energy up and the lead, in front of an energetic crowd of Lycéens who came to cheer them on. End of the first half: 36-12.

After the  break, the crowd had scattered a bit, perhaps knowing the dice had been cast. The gap in the score narrowed some, but by only a hair. By the end of the third quarter, victory was certain: 45-23 Lynx.

In the final stretch, fatigue had hit both teams, but the Lynx lead was solidified. Final score: 51-28 for the Lynx!
