This past weekend was a very busy weekend with all juvenile teams in action. First up last Friday night were our U12’s who traveled to Neptune for a repeat of the recent championship final. Neptune started much brighter and lead 19-9 at half time. Jim and Brian’s lads came out all guns blazing in the 3rd quarter as they held Neptune to 3 points in total and Demons lead 23-22 at the end of the 3rd. In the 4th quarter, the lead kept switching but our lads dug deep to eventually win on a scoreline of 41-39. Well done to both teams on a great game.
On Sunday morning(7-Feb), the Parochial Hall was packed as we hosted 4 games against Ballincollig with our U10’s, U11’s, U13 & U14’s in action.
Our U10 & U11’s continued to show great improvements as both teams put in excellent performances in these non competitive games as both teams moved the ball well and there was some great shooting on show. We can see the improvement in this teams every time they step on the court.
The big game on Sunday morning was our U13 team against Ballincollig in a top of the table league clash. Brian & Tony Foley’s troops were well up for the battle but found themselves 11-9 down at the end of the first quarter. Our lads really upped the tempo in the second quarter as they held Ballincollig to a total of 2 points and push the ball on the fast break as Demons lead 23-13 at half time. It was an even 3rd quarter from both teams as Demons continued to lead 36-27. In the 4th quarter, the game really opened up with some great scores from both teams but our lads know how to win tight games and ran out winners on a scoreline of 51-46 after a very good performance.
Our U14’s coached by Darren O’Leary were also in action against Ballincollig in a repeat of the championship final. Ballincollig were stronger on the day and ran out winners on a scoreline of 37-17 after a brave effort from our lads.
Thanks to everybody who came out on Sunday morning to support our teams!
