Limerick Celtics U14 Girls & U16 Boys win Globasket Tournament

Celtics under 14 girls and under 16 boys are GLOBASKET CHAMPIONS 2019!!! Congrats to Michelle, Chris, Tony, Tony and all the super boys and girls on two amazing performances!!

Also well done to Celtics U14 Boys and U16 Girls on some strong team performances over the first three days to reach the quarter-final of their category.

Under 16 girls coach Gordon O’Brien and manager Denis McInerney and under 14 boys coach Michael Crane and manager Vinny Gleeson strongly supported their teams over the four days of the Glo Basket tournament.

The U14 girl’s final took place early on Thursday morning and with huge Celtics support cheering them on the Celtic girls took early control of this fast paced final and led CD Colexio Mariano by 14 points midway through the second quarter.

Colexio Mariano came back strongly in the third but the Limerick girls matched them basket for basket and with sustained fast-break scores in the fourth, there was little doubt that the Glo Basket Title was heading to Limerick for the first time on a final commanding scoreline of 87-47.

The under 16 boys followed the girls under 14 final but this was a much tougher affair with the lead changing sides eighteen times in this fast paced and highly competitive game.

Alcoron started stronger but as this game progressed the Celtics boys regained control, combining with increasing effectiveness, to set up some fine team scores. Alcoron made a late run and reduced the Celtics lead to 2 points with only  minutes remaining but the Celtics boys closed out in style to take a second Glo Basket International title on a 68 to 64 scoreline.

What an absolutely amazing week our huge group of 94 parents and players had in Spain. Thanks to Tony and Denis for all the super work in organising the trip and well done to our four teams!!!
