Basketball All Ireland Semi-final
ALL IRELAND SEMI-FINAL
ARKLOW CBS … 35 BLACKROCK COLLEGE … 60
We congratulate Captain Calum Henry (6th Year) and his Squad on their victory over Arklow CBS in the Semi-Final played out at the National Basketball Arena, Tallaght last Tuesday, 2nd February 2 016.
We took time to settle into the match and to their credit Arklow CBS took full advantage and had a 17 – 7 lead at the end the first quarter. However, it was the second quarter where the match swung which finished with a 32 – 19 lead to us; Andrew Keenan scored 10 points under the boards and Calum Henry scoring 8 points on the fast break in that quarter alone.
The advantage stretched to 22 points by the end of the third quarter and the extended Squad showed its strength in the final quarter with excellent game management as the game was seen out.
And so an All-Ireland Final awaits our Squad. Richly deserved.
We thank Mr O’Neill and Shane Kelly (Class of 2013) for their preparation of the boys.
