Blue Demons Juvenile Boys had a very busy and successful few days over the past weekend.
Our U12’s kicked off on Saturday morning against Limerick Celtics in the U12 championship first round. Stephen O’Leary’s U12’s were slow to start and trailed 8-2 at the end of the first quarter. They came out all guns blazing in the 2nd quarter to lead 18-13 at half time with some good scoring from Jack O’Leary and Mathew McCarthy. It continued to be a tight affair in the 3rd quarter (29-22) but Demons upped the tempo in the final quarter to run out winners on a scoreline of 44-26.

Our U10’s played Neptune and put in a disciplined and very good performance with good passing being key to their game.
