THE Tralee Imperials U18 Boys have made club history by completing the double this season, capturing both the u18 division 1 county cup and league titles as a  77-70 victory over a very strong St. Mary’s side sealed top position on the league table on Monday night.

The game was closely fought with the Castleisland side leading for most of it, and were 40-33 up at half time, but the Tralee boys showed great determination and strength to finish out the game with a win.

Ryan Leonard lit up the scoreboard with a massive 42pts. Incredibly 23 of those points came in the final quarter to ensure Tralee Imperials first u18 boys league title.

Other scorers on the night included Dara Devine (14pts), captain Keelan Crowe (11pts), Philip Corkery (5pts) and Kieran Mangan (5pts). Overall it was an excellent team effort with Patrick Kearney and Robbie Dinan playing their part in defence and the boys on the sideline encouraging their team mates to fight for every ball.

It was a fantastic end to a very successful season for Imperials, including reaching the final 8 in the National Cup.

Credit is due to the coaches, John Dowling and Rick Leonard, and team manager, Sarah Dinan, for their time and dedication throughout the season, and the club thanked Leahy Construction Ltd. for their continued sponsorship.
