A thrilling win by the Division 1 team was the highlight of the week. A very tough draw saw them having to travel down to Neptune Stadium to face a Neptune team that included former Superleague Star Ger Noonan. Undaunted by the challenge the team managed to pull off a huge win 73-69. Mark Ryan led the way with 26 points and was helped out by Jack Nolan who added 18 and Mike Chubb who scored 11. The team are now in National Cup semi final in January. Well done to John and the team.
The u15s had mixed results with a comprehensive win over Malahide on Friday followed by a tough loss to Templeogue in the cup. Trailing by 1 at half time a tough 3rd quarter allowed Templeogue open a lead that despite great efforts in the 4th we couldn't overcome.
The u14s had a great win on Sunday against Kubs. In a really exciting game a huge basket by Ruairdhi MacDonnacha helped seal the win.
The Superleague team had a busy couple of days with Eanna and UL both visiting UCD. On Thursday night Conor Meany led the way with 22 points and the guys won by 19 points. After a slow start on Saturday the inside scoring of Dustan, Neil and Mike helped overpower UL and seal another 20 point win. The team are now 8-2 and in 2nd place in the country. There is a huge game next Friday night in UCD and the team need as much support as possible.
In club news, congratulations to Paraic Moran on making the final 36 of the Irish u15s development squad. Hard luck to Luke Gilleran on missing out narrowly. Both players are a credit to the club and will continue to have lots of success if they keep up their hard work.
Lastly best of luck to D1 player Mike Chubb who is getting married next Saturday. All the best from all of us in the club!
