Tralee Imperials 25

St. Brendan’s welcomed Imperials to Moyderwell last Sunday for the eagerly awaited local derby. The first quarter was very evenly matched. Danny Hennessy opened the scoring for Imperials but a great 3 point shot from Cathal Concagh soon canceled this.

Evan Healy made full use of his height under the boards, getting some great rebounds and chipping in with 4 points. Imperials stayed in touch with scores coming from Daragh O’Connor and Kian O’Shea.

A great steal by Shane kelly, who was subsequently fouled, resulted in possession for Brendan’s and a point by Cathal Concagh. Score at the end of the first quarter was 8pts each. The second quarter proved to be equally as close.

Joseph O’Sullivan had 2pts on the board for Brendan’s within 30 seconds of the start, followed by another 2 from Brian O’Donnell.  Cian Dillane was keeping Imperials in the game with an impressive 9pts in the quarter.

David Scally controlled the game well from point guard and was ably assisted by Shane Cotter and Ruairi Halloran. Only 2 points separated the teams at half time, so it was all still to play for.

The 3rd quarter was all St. Brendan’s as Lucca O’Carroll, who was having his best game to date, added a further 6pts.

Jack Mc Cormack came more into the game and picked up 4pts from rebounds. Great pressure from Dean Hourigan, Cathal and Evan in defence resulted in Imperials rushing their shots and only managed to register 4 pts in the quarter.

Brendan’s were leading 30 – 21 going into the last quarter. The last quarter saw Brendan’s extend their lead, Cathal landed his third 3 of the day, followed by another 3 by Jack McCormack. This allowed Brendan’s to empty their bench but Imperials still couldn’t make any inroads and in the end Brendan’s ran out worthy winners by 16pts. It was a great result for coaches Liam and Mike.
