Blue Demons U18’s juveniles qualified for the semi finals of the U18 National Cup shield after victory over Phoenix BC of Belfast this morning(6-Mar).

Our scoring tempo slowed in the second quarter but Demons still maintained a healthy lead at half time(44-30). Scoring continued to slow in the third quarter but we scored some great fast breaks with James Beckom and Dylan Brickley to the fore to increase the lead to 58-42. Conor Deasy and David Brickley’s troops kept the lead throughout the 4th quarter after some great hustle from Ethan Hurley, Jamie Thompson and Adam Lordan to run out winners on a scoreline of 74-65. Our next opponents in the semi final will be our local rivals Ballincollig.
