U18 ensure home draw in National Cup Quarter final

Moycullen U18 beat Kubs this afternoon to ensure a home draw in the quarter final. The lads were in good form all weekend winning all four games….
On Saturday they played Kubs in the first group game. A game of scoring bursts for both teams, the lads built up a lead and were able to see out the win to get a good start to the day.
The second game of the day was against Fr. Mathews and a dominant first half performance was enough to see the team top the group and set up a Pool semi-final game on Sunday morning against Anderstown Tigers.

The 10am tip-off on Sunday morning didn’t bother the lads and they once again had a very good first half which saw them win the game and battle it out for a home quarter-final.

In the Pool final, we once gain faced Kubs who had beaten Gneeveguilla in their semi. While we didn’t get off to the greatest of starts, we soon settled and played some outstanding basketball at times to gain victory and guarantee a home quarter-final draw.

Well done to Coaches Dylan & Nollaig Cunningham and the lads….

The other 3 teams with a home quarter-final are as follows:
Belfast Star
Dublin Lions

The 4 teams who will play away:
Kubs (who we cannot play in the quarters)
Blue Demons
Ongar Chasers
Tralee Imperials

The draw for the quarter-finals and semis is being done on Monday.
