St Brendans 30 KCYMS 15

Our U11 academy team had a fantastic win against top of the table KCYMS on Wednesday evening in Moyderwell. Despite being without the services of Liam Óg O’Connor who was out through injury, the rest of the team stepped up and gave their best performance of the season.

Having previously lost to KCYMS, everyone stepped up to the mark and we sealed the win on a score line of 30-15. We are now joint first in our pool but will need to win the remaining two games in order to qualify for the finals.

St. Brendan’s 31 Tralee Tigers 26

St. Brendan’s Boys’ Under 14 Division 2 team recorded another win this weekend at home to local rivals Tralee Tigers in Moyderwell Gym.

Both sides were evenly matched and the contest proved to be a close and exciting affair. Coren Hughes opened the scoring for the hosts and his basket was quickly followed by 2 points from Andrew Wallace.

Donal O’Sullivan and Dean Farrell proved to be a good defensive match for their opponents and Cian Griffin was as solid as always in defence. Coren managed to add a further two scores to his tally and the quarter ended with both sides level at 8 points apiece. The visitors got off to the better start in Q2 registering a series of unanswered baskets, however St. Brendan’s didn’t panic and Tom Flavin worked hard to restrict Tigers’ scoring opportunities before Simon Carey got off the mark with a couple of great scores to calm things down.

Ian Begley used his height advantage to great effect and managed to score from the free throw line before the tightly marked Andrew Wallace closed out the quarter with another fine score.  It ended with the visitors leading by 20-15.

Quarter 3 proved to be St Brendan’s most prolific quarter and they outscored their hosts by 12 points to 0. Baskets were registered by Coren Hughes, Donal O’Sullivan, Fiachra O’Connor and Cian Griffin which resulted in St. Brendan’s leading by 7 points heading into the final quarter on a scoreline of 27– 20. The last quarter was once again a close affair with all of St. Brendan’s points being scored by Andrew Wallace.  Despite injuring his knee earlier in the game, Jack Doyle (Scoil Eoin) was re-introduced and caught some great rebounds and along with Joshua Roche, they managed to restrict Tigers to 6 points. The game ended with St. Brendan’s running out winners with a score line of 31 points to 26.
