Drogheda Bullets 46pts Blackwater Steelers 27pts This was only the 2nd defeat of the
season for the U 16 lads but it was a heavy defeat to a very physically strong Drogheda.
The Drogheda lads are huge compared to the Steeler boys with a lot of them playing
up at 17 and 18 levels too. However the Steelers made it very difficult for them
throughout the game. Team and Scorers: Ben Ryan 9pts, R. Corrigan 7pts, K. Hackett
3pts, A. Stewart 2pts, K. Ostrowski 2pts, C. Liddle 2pts, T. O Rourke 2pts, M. Curley,
L. McKenna, L. Conway and C. Mulligan.
Streete Warriors 26pts Blackwater Steelers 57pts This was a good performance from
the 16 boys and a good result. Streete had no answer to the speed and accuracy of
the Steeler boys and the Monaghan men led from start to finish. It went 18-8, 4-13,
5-10 and 16-9 through the quarters, dominating throughout. There are tougher games
on the horizon. Team & Scorers: Ben Ryan 20pts, Alister Stewart 12pts, Cameron Liddle
8pts, Liam McKenna 8pts, Rio Corrigan 5pts, Kelvin Hackett 3pts, Kacper Ostrowski
1pt, Conor Mulligan, Lui Shiels, Liam Conway and Tiarnan O Rourke.
Blackwater Steelers 75pts Cavan Lakers 43pts The U 16 Boys were humming like a sweetly
tuned engine when they played the Lakers. They did all the damage in the first two
quarters with some wonderful play and some brilliant finishing. Ben, Cameron and
Alister were in top form in offence and they punished the Lakers without mercy. The
defence is working as a real unit no matter who’s on the floor and so much of the
offence comes from real good defence. Hopefully this will continue for the remainder
of the games. Team & Scorers: Ben Ryan 22pts, Cameron Liddle 16pts, Alister Stewart
16pts, Matthew Curley 6pts, Kelvin Hackett 4pts, Liam McKenna 3pts, Rio Corrigan
2pts, Tiarnan O Rourke 2pts, Lui Shiels 2pts, R. Murphy 2pts, Kacper Ostrowski and
Blackwater Steelers 42pts Dundalk Ravens 60pts If you have a 6ft 7inh U 15 on your
team you have a distinct advantage and Dundalk did, they also have a good point guard
and some other nice shooters. They went 23pts to 13pts in the first quarter as we
tried to figure out how to play against him. Dundalk won the 2nd and the 3rd as
we struggled to deal with their power and physicality and as they eased off a little
in the last the Steelers scored more easily. I would predict we have just played
the League Winners for the coming season. Team and Scorers: Cameron Liddle 13pts,
Liam Conway 8pts, Alister Stewart 7pts, Ben Ryan 6pts, Matthew Curley 4pts, Rio Corrigan
2pts, Kasper Ostrowski 2pts, Liam McKenna, Che Treanor, Tiarnan O Rourke, Conor Mulligan
and Jamie Lopez.
Blackwater Steelers 51pts Dunshaughlin Rockets 16pts This was a mismatch really with
the Steelers far too strong for the opposition, having said that though the Steeler
boys played extremely well especially in the first. The home side won all 4 quarters
for their 2nd win of the season. Team: L. McKenna 2pts, R. Murphy 4pts, K. Hackett
4pts, C. Liddle 10pts, R. Corrigan 4pts, T. O Rourke 2pts, K. Ostrowski 4pts, B.
Ryan 10pts, C. Mulligan, L. Conway 2pts, A. Stewart 5pts, M. Curley 2pts.
