U13 Boys Win Top 4 Championship
Blue Demons U13’s were crowned Top 4 U13 champions on Saturday last in the Parochial Hall after a very good team performance against Neptune to complete a league and Top 4 double. Our U13’s expertly coached by David Lehane, Conor Deasy & Dermot Looney lead from the start of the game and were 8-6 up at the end of the first quarter after great defense from Cian Looney and Vernon Scully. Demons started brightly in the second quarter to lead by 8 points but Neptune came back into it but Demons lead 17-16 at half time as defense dominated the game with scores coming at a premium.
Demons pushed hard in the 3rd quarter but with a superb exhibition of outside shooting from Sean Murphy and some great efforts from Ryan Murray, Demons finished the 3rd quarter leading 31-30. In the 4th quarter, Demons started with great intensity and with great efforts from Craig Sweeney and David Lehane, Demons ran out comprehensive winners on a scoreline of 46-38. It was a super defensive performance from all as Demons held Neptune to 6 points in the entire 4th quarter. It was a superb team performance with all 14 players playing their part in this victory. Congratulations to you all! The next few weeks will be all about hard training in preparation for Sweden at the end of the May.
Our attention now switches to our U14’s playing a Top 4 league final against Neptune on Tuesday night(29th April) in the Parochial Hall @ 6:15pm. We would urge all club members and fans to come out and support Dave Beckom’s & Troy O’Mahony’s troops in action.
