U14A Boys

U. 14 B Boys
Drogheda Bullets 39pts Blackwater Steelers 29pts
This was a great game of basketball from these inexperienced lads but they just were not able to pull back the first quarter deficit. They just need a little more composure under the basket and this game could have been a win.
Team and Scorers: S. Swift 10pts, M. Corrigan 8pts, R. McArdle 4pts, A. Elsayed 3pts, S. Metcalfe 2pts, A. McKnight 2pts, C. Murphy, R. McMahon, A. Walsh, M. McVicar and A. McArdle.


U 14 A Boys
Drogheda Bullets 42pts Blackwater Steelers 40pts
This was the proverbial game of two halves; the Steelers were poor in the first quarter with some below par finishing around the basket, the Monaghan side should have been further ahead. The 2 quarter got away from the Steelers and they became ragged with the half time score at 25pts to 14pts. The boys pressed in the third and made good headway winning it by 4 with super performances from Donnacha O Hanlon and Michael McMorrow. The last quarter was even better but just didn’t get enough on the board. Well done to Jamie Krisiulevicius on scoring 29pts but winning 3 out of the 4 quarters and still losing the game is hard to take. Team & Scorers: J. Krisiulevicius 29pts, Michael McMorrow 4pts, C. Harpin 3pts,  D. McPhillips 2pts, D. O Hanlon, G. Treanor, M. Donahue, E. Shiels, L. Cawley, L. Krisciunas and S. S. Kelly.

Streete Warriors 57 Blackwater Steelers 41
As Streete warmed up you could see this would be a decent challenged and it turned out to be worse than that as the home side took the pints with some aplomb. They are unbeaten so far and were too good for the Steelers. After a good first quarter the Steelers led 14pts to 16pts but the home side pulled back in the 2nd and led by 1pt at half time. Poor team work and individual frustration cost the Steelers dear as rampant Streete surged ahead in the 3rd & 4th quarter to win the game comfortably. The Steelers fought to the end but the points were lost.  Team & Scorers: Jamie Krisiulevicius 19pts, Conal Harpin 10pts, Mark Donohue 4pts, Lucas Krisciunas 2pts, Dylan McPhillips 2pts, Michael McMorrow 2pts, Luke Cawley 2pts, Donnacha O Hanlon, Enri Shiels, Sean S. Kelly and Gary Treanor.

Blackwater Steelers 32pts Carrick Cruisers 31pts
The last game of the day was a cracker, went down to the wire and kept all on their toes. The win for Steelers was just about deserved over the course of the game and is a good boost for these inexperienced young lads.
There was only a basket between the sides in the first with Carrick ahead but 8pts from Ali Elsayed and 2pts each
from Fionán Gallagher and Mark Corrigan in the 2nd put Steelers ahead by 4 at half time. Carrick came back strongly in the third but the home side held firm and outscored them by 1pt, 10 to 9 thanks to a strong quarter from Cian Murphy. That one point became very significant at the end. The Steelers found it hard to score in the last whereas Carrick were piling the pressure on, they won the last by 4pts but that 1pt difference became very important as they just run out of time. Team & Scorers: Cian Murphy 12pts, Ali Elsayed 8pts, Shea Swift 4pts, Mark Corrigan 2pts, Fionán Gallagher 2pts, Daire O Conlan 2pts, Andrew Walsh 2pts, Josh Curley, A. McArdle, Ryan McMahon, Max Aughey and Matthew McVicar..
