Limerick Celtics 65-92 Blue Demons
Sunday, January 8th, 2017 Parochial Hall
The Men’s NICC semi-finals rounded off the weekend, with Blue Demons showing their depth and talent in a dominating display over a six-man Limerick Celtics, in Parochial Hall.
The Cork team ran out convincing 92-65 point winners with Niall O’Reilly the shooting star for the side, netting a whopping 39 points in total, proving especially decisive in the fourth quarter.
Shane McCarthy for Demons was hitting three-pointers without breaking a sweat, while O’Reilly and O’Mahony rebounded well to ensure Limerick had a tough battle on their hands from the off.
Nonetheless, they rose to the challenge through the scoring prowess of American Victory Scholar, Dillon Burns, who controlled Limerick’s offense and led the scoring for the Celtics with an impressive 31 points, showing off his range with both impressive inside work and outside shooting. He was supported well by team mate Galvin, who worked extremely hard on both offensive and defensive boards, and was one of the team’s top scorers.
However, the depth of the Demons’ bench proved too much for a resilient six-man Limerick, and Demons booked their spot in this year’s Hula Hoops Men’s NICC Cup finals, which will take place in the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght from January 27th to 29th, 2017.
Limerick Celtics 65-92 Blue Demons
Top Scorers Limerick Celtics: Dillon Burns 31, John Galvin 17, Tommy Walsh 8
Top Scorers Blue Demons: Niall O'Reilly 39, Shane McCarthy 16, Daniel Thompson 13
Half time score: Limerick Celtics 36-51 Blue Demons

Our under 16 boys and girls had an amazing trip to Barcelona over the midterm break. Our teams played five games and attending a basketball clinic on the Saturday in Barcelona. With over 50 kids and parents travelling on this super trip everyone had a ball of a time with basketball games every day and social activities every morning and evening. Thanks to Dan, Carlos, Lydia and all the parents for their super help with organising this event. Our boys and girls were straight back into club action when they returned with our under 15 girls having a super win over Ballincollig and our under 16 boys getting a very good win over Limerick Lakers.

Our under 18 boys and girls also had two North Munster league wins over UL Huskies and Lakers and both are now top of the under 18 North Munster leagues going into the final month of league games.

Our under 12 girls had a super win over Springfield while our under 12 boys beat Glen Cruisers Newport to reach the under 12's girls cup final.

Our Club Bingo Night is on this coming Friday night in Crescent Comp at 7.30pm so please come along for what promises to be a great night out.

Our Under 16 team minus some of their stronger players had a very impressive win over Lakers. Kevin Dowling and Danny Broderick top scored but there was also some super scoring from Ben Martin and Nick Pitaru. Danny Hernan did a super job inside and Daragh Caulfield and Mark Shanahan both made major contributions as Celtics ran out as 20 point winners in the end. Well done to our under 18 boys on a great 54 -25 win over Lakers in Salesians. Gary Guinane opened the scoring and this was followed by some great scores from Tommy Walsh, Michael Fenton and Dylan O'Dwyer. Sam Lombard and Emmett Brown increased Celtics lead and a very strong third quarter by Cetlics saw our boys take a commanding twenty point lead with Michael Sheehan doing some great work offf the bench.

Our Celtics boys had three games on Sunday - two u12 NM league games and one u11 friendly.Our 12pm game was against Springfield, a team we had never faced before. The Springfield boys have excellent coaching and we knew that they'd already well beaten the Lions, so we knew it was going to be a tough one. And it was Jack Golden turned in a vintage MVP performance in a game where our accuracy told in the end. Luke Ryan's hustle and running earned him the Most Improved Player plaudits.The two fives played a great passing game and almost everyone was on the scoresheet and Jack, Tom and Aaron each scored what would ordinarily be three-pointers. Celtics finished winners by a good margin but Springfield fought hard and played with great spirit. Squad:ack Golden(MVP), Adam Coffey, Daniel Jordan, Luke Ryan(MIP), Dennis Matthews, Cian Gleeson, Tom Lloyd, James Corcoran, Aaron Fitzgerald, Gareth Gallagher-Molloy, Evan Ryan, Conor O'Mara Next was an u11 friendly against the Lakers. Tom, Aaron and Evan from the u12 squad were joined by Stuart Jordan, Aidan Hernan, Kevin Morrow and James Lin. Our boys were too strong for the Lakers. It's great to see such talent coming up from the u10sFinally we had our u12 game against Lakers.

The away fixture was won well by our boys so we didn't expect what Lakers brought today. They were very strong. We had a 3 basket lead at half time. MVP Adam Coffey took us clear in the 3rd quarter with two wonderful steals. James Corcoran won MIP for some electric dribbling in the fourth quarter. We weren't good on rebounds at all and if Lakers had been more accurate in their shooting the score might have been a lot closer. As it was, we won 41-20.

Well done to our under 12 girls on a super performance at home to Springfield. Our girls played super defense from start to finish with Anna Odufuwa and Issey Leahy top scoring. Monica Sheehan added some super assists while Issabel Micks, Eimear Begley, Roisin Ryan, Nia McInerney played some super dense to give our girls a six point half time lead. Jayne Meaney, Sabhbh Brennan, Robin Tobin and Hannah O'Bryne finished off the game with some super teamwork to give Celtics a well deserved victory.Well done to Aiofe McSweeney and Dearbhla Smith for the great support of their team .

AWAY BOYS CORK LEAGUE GAMES V BLUE DEMONS 2nd Nov

Our boy’s teams travelled to Cork this morning for some Division One Cork league games v Blue Demons in the Parochial Hall.  Our under 16 boys started very strongly and had two super early baskets from Emmet Browne and Michael Fenton. Tommy Walsh and Dylan O’Dywer added some more good scores to put our boys up by 8 at the end of the first quarter. Jordan Hehir added another good outside shot to increase their lead in the second quarter. Kevin Dowling, Michael Sheehan, Oscar Dunne and Cian O’Reilly added some nice scores and strong defense to give our boys a well deserved 47 – 34 win.

Our under 12 boys started well and worked hard for the entire game against a strong Blue Demons side. Demons scored some super fast break scores and led by 4 at the end of the first quarter. Despite some great effort from all our players our boys trailed for the remainder of the game and Demons finished some great outside shots and drives to give them the valuable league points. Our boys finishing on shots and layups will have to improve if we are to challenge the top teams in this league but this group of boys are very dedicated and we are sure to see huge improvements in the coming weeks.  Top players on the day were Frank Corcoran, Billy Molyneaux, Jack Golden and Liam Dunne.

Our under 14 boys put up a good performance in their away game to Demons and had some great scores from Cian O’Reilly, Danny Broderick and Ben Martin. A much improved performance from our boys and despite the loss our boys are definitely beginning to improve as a team. Well Done to all our players, coaches and managers todaygh opposition our  girls played some  super basketball with Ciara Lane and Louise Ryan running the point guard position. Laura Molyneaux, Jenny Morrison, Siofra Keane, Niamh Fenton and Amy Rickard did really well defense and chipped in with some lovely inside moves. Aoife Lane shot some good outside shots and Helena Stewart put In some good work on both ends of the court. We hope to see Siofra back on the court in the coming weeks and  also hope that Aoife will be back this coming week.

Our boys under 12 team had a very impressive win over Limerick Lions with Billy Molyneaux, Frank Corcoran, Oisin Moss and Sean Hernan all adding somet great scores during this fast and exciting game. David Cooney  Tom Lloyd, Jasper Fitzgerad and Sean O Reillly played great defense and moved well on offense. Gareth Gallagher,Eoin Hennessy and Adam Coffey added some great and scores to give our boys a good opening home Cork league win.

Our under 14 boys had a poor start to their season when they  lost to Lions on Saturday. 0ur boys lack of scoring had them behind from the start. Cian O’Reilly and Cathal Moane  were our top scorers on the day but lots of team training will be needed in the coming weeks to get our boys to their full potential.

Our under 16 boys came out winners despite playing without two of their keys players. Our boys were down in the third quarter but with some great team work they came back to win by 6 points.
Emmet Brown, Michael Fenton and Dylan 0’ Dwyer top scored for our boys on the day and they opened their Cork league with a home win.

Our under 12 girls lost out to Wildcats by just one point in their away Cork league game. Anna Odufawa, Tara Nealon and Carowyn Leahy top scored on the day.  Our girls are going from strength to strength so keep up the great work.

Our under 14 girls had a super one point  away win despite missing some keys players. Eva O’Sullivan, Eve Nealon, Laura Stapleton and Tara Nealon all scored some super baskets in this great away Cork league win.

Our under 13 girls lost out to a very strong Wildcats team but put in some great work on defense and will get stronger as the season goes on.
Our under 15 girls also had a tough away game to Wildcats but again these games will stand to our girls over the course of the season.

Well done to all our players, coaches, managers and parents on all the great work and games over  the weekend!
