Basketball – All Ireland Schools’ League Playoff v Summerhill College
U-19 Basketball All-Ireland Schools Cup
Congratulations to joint captains Ronin O’Halloran and Murray Baker (both 6th Year) and their squad on this win over Summerhill College (Sligo). A tough physical outfit they made this game a real battle throughout, with the game hanging in the balance until the final 2 minutes.
Summerhill led 12-10 at the end of the first quarter having dictated the tempo of the game. More composure came into our game in the second and third quarter, as we won them 10-4 and 17-11 respectively. Excellent game management in the final quarter saw us maintain the advantage.
As a consequence, we have qualified for an All-Ireland League quarter final which will be on the 26th January in the National Basketball Arena.
Next up is St. Munchins College in the All-Ireland Cup Final on Wednesday 19th January. This can be seen live on the Basketball Ireland youtube channel at 12.30pm.
We thank our coaches Barry O’Sullivan (Class of 2018), Roberto Brusasca (Class of 2019) and Mr O’Neill for their phenomenal work with the squad.
