Blue Demons U12’s coached by Jim O’Sullivan and Brian Horgan were victorious today(19-Mar) in the CCB U12 Tournament in the Parochial Hall. Our lads topped their pool after wins over Carrigaline and Moycullen of Galway. In the semi finals, our lads played Killarney Cougars in what was a very tight game initially with scores tied 14-14 at the end of the first quarter. Our lads upped the intensity in the 2nd quarter to lead 26-17 at half time. Our lads continued to push the momentum in the 3rd quarter to lead 39-22 and ran out winners 43-31 to qualify for another final.
Our opponents in the final were Maree of Galway who surged into a 9-2 lead early on but our lads gathered themselves to lead 15-14 at the end of the first quarter. Our lads again pushed the tempo to lead 31-21 at half time and our lads scoring rate continued in the 3rd quarter to lead 46-25 after some great defense and fast break basketball. A great team performance was topped off in the 4th quarter as our lads continued scoring and won 59-30.
Congrats lads on a great team performance throughout the day as our U12’s continued their unbeaten season after earlier season victories in a Limerick pre-season and CCB Championship. The U12’s are also undefeated in the league.
Thanks also to everybody who came out to support the team today.
