IRISH TV Tralee Warriors suffered just their second league defeat so far this season as they went down 83 to 80 against Killester last night.

It was a thrilling game with the Tralee side coming back from 71-55 down at the start of the fourth quarter to take the lead before the Dublin side snatched it in the closing stages.

Things were even enough after the first quarter with the scores 22-21 to the home side. It was tit for tat as well in the second but Killester pulled away before the half-time buzzer to lead 46-41.

The Dublin team commanded the third quarter though and led by 16 going into the final 15. But Tralee roared back and actually led 80-79 with less than 30 seconds to go, before Killester took the points at the end.

Top scorers for Tralee warriors were Trae Pemberton 30, Kieran Donaghy 14  and Goran Pantovic 13. You can watch the closing minutes in this clip…
