Captains Comment:
‘It was a strong spirited performance from all team members. The game was fast paced and hectic but we kept our heads. Rory Ward had a very strong opening along with Ethan McBride to give us confidence for the game. Tristan O’Neill and Sean O’Reilly did a great job of grabbing rebounds and defending down low. The whole panel along with friends and family did a great job in motivating us to get the hard fought win. On behalf of the team we would like to thank Mr.Bellew and Ms.O’Sullivan for all the work they put in with us’. Oisin McEvoy Capt
