Blackwater Steelers 25pts Drogheda Bullets 36pts The young Drogheda boys were just
too strong for the Steeler lads on the day.
Blackwater Steelers 26pts Cavan Lakers Cubs 18pts Having made it into the top half
of the league, the goal now is to continue to improve and maybe a place in the top
4 will be their reward. Our 1st hurdle was a game v Cavan Lakers Cubs in the Sem
on Sat 27th January. The 1st quarter was a blitz as our lads outplayed their opponents,
defending manfully and limiting any scoring opportunities, while playing very well
in offense, winning this period 12-2. We lost the 2nd qtr. through some sloppy play,
poor passing and unnecessary fouls, which even at u12 level doesn't go unpunished.
A better 2nd half from the lads saw them winning by 8points. 26-18. More work to
be done! Team and scorers: Johnnie Wright 12pts, Patrick Murphy 6pts, Ruadhan O Dufaigh
5pts, Andrew Stewart 2pts, Paddy Mulligan 1pt, Darragh Mulligan, Luke Swift, Stephen
McSkeane, Diarmuid Mc Ginnity, Sean Woods, Adam McElvaney and Rory Conway.
Blackwater Steelers 33pts East Coast Cavaliers 20pts Our u12 boys were the only team
in action this weekend as we welcomed East Coast Cavaliers to the Sem on Sunday morning.
This was a much improved performance from the lads, and they are gelling well together
as a team. Our defensive game is getting better with each game. Our full court press,
which we used for the first time worked really well and denied the opposition any
scores in the last quarter. Great job boys! Team and scorers: Paddy Mulligan 9pts,
Andrew Stewart 7pts, Johnnie Wright 6pts, Patrick Murphy 4pts, Sean Woods 2pts, Ruadhan
O Dufaigh 2pts, Stephen McSkeane 2pts, Ethan McCaffrey 1pt, Daniel Aughey, Luke Swift
and Rory Conway.
