Blue Demons U14 & U16B juvenile boys teams both qualified for the CCB Championship finals after victories in their corresponding semi finals on Tuesday night in the Parochial Hall.
Our U14’s lead from start to finish against a strong Ballincollig team. Our lads lead 22-18 at half time after a tough opening half. In the 3rd quarter, Brian & Tony Foley’s troops came out all guns blazing to really push the pace with some great defense holding Ballincollig to 2 points in the quarter to extend their lead to 38-20. Our lads continued to push the pace in the final quarter to run out winners on a scoreline of 50-30. Well done lads!
Our U16B’s coached by Patrick Hession were next up on Tuesday night against Carrigaline. The game was slow to get started but our lads lead from the off to lead 8-5 at the end of the first quarter. Demons scoring increased in the 2nd quarter as the game opened up with our lads hitting some three’s to lead 25-12 at half time. In the 3rd quarter, defenses were on top but our lads were still able to maintain a healthy lead of 31-29. Our U16B’s continued to lead from the front in the 4th quarter to run our winners on a scoreline of 44-30.
Our U12 & U16A teams have also qualified for the CCB finals and our U18A team compete in the semi final next Tuesday night (10th Jan).
Congrats to all teams on good performances as they look to begin preparations for the CCB finals.
