Blackwater Steelers 81pts Dundalk Ravens 50pts
The scoreline probably doesn’t do justice to the Ravens and the stubborn defence they put up throughout the match. It was the end of the first before the home side stretched ahead with 6 in a row from Andrew O Connor. The 2nd quarter was closer but the Steelers stayed ahead and uncharacteristic errors littered the half, Kai McCaffrey played well when he came on and the Steelers led by 12pts.  Killian and Andrew upped their games in the third and put the game to bed and everyone got court time before the buzzer went. The U 18 Steelers have yet to hit top form but have 2 wins to their credit. Team & Scorers: Andrew O Connor 38pts, Killian McAdam 14pts, Sebb Uglis 8pts, Cian Fitzgerald 7pts, Michael McDonnell 5pts, Ryan Treanor 5pts, Kai McCaffrey 4pts, Sean Conway, Robert Haynes, Jason Hamill, Sebb Ostrowski and Lorcan O Rourke.

Blackwater Steelers 63pts Dunshaughlin Rockets 58pts
This was the game of the day, strong raucous opposition who were determined to get the win against a cool confident Steelers riding on the highs of last season. The game was brilliant for the spectators with the home team starting well and the Rockets staying in touch with some big threes. They were also quite physical deliberately targeting some of the Steelers’ players for attention, the Steelers led by 3 after the first. The second remained tight too, Ryan Treanor did a great job on their 8, Rob Haynes came in and made a difference and Andrew O Connor and Killian McAdam kept the scoreboard ticking over but we only led by 28pts to 23pts at the break.
The Steelers pressed in the 3rd,  stole the momentum and went further ahead with two deep threes from Andrew, however they kept in touch with a couple of their own. The Steelers led by 9pts going into the 4th but the Rockets didn’t wilt and came back strong. This was a high scoring quarter with neither defence doing what they should and the Meath side came close but the marginally better Steelers side won out in the end.
