KUBS Annual BBQ & Awards Day
After some seriously heavy rain falls over the previous week, the KUBS BBQ brought sunshine to Greendale for a great KUBS family day. The master bbq chefs, Dave and Frank were in full swing by 3.30pm with flames nearly licking their faces. We have to give them credit, it was another great production line of burgers and hotdogs. Congratulations to all the players who received awards today and good job to all their coaches throughout the season. Check out our latest photos from our BBQ and Awards Day on the Gallery Page.
A special presentation was made to Brian Edwards on behalf of KUBS Basketball Club. Brian leaves to set up home in France next week. We greatly enjoyed having him both play and coach here in KUBS and wish him all the best in his travels. His large friendly presence will be missed around the club.
KUBS Mens Division 1 Team Take DMBB Cup Title.
What a game! In a tightly contested final game of the DMBB Cup Weekend, the KUBS Div 1 Men played a blinder and kept a very strong Drogheda Bullets away from ending, what was a great season for them, with a win. Right from the tip off the KUBS guys were relentless in their title battle. Although Bullets had some height advantage, the KUBS lads would not be deterred. Nobody can doubt that the MVP position goes to Marcus Black who truly was awesome. Shane McCann can share some honours also as he was dominant under the basket. Another player who lit up the night and the supporters was Tom Kenny, who with sheer basketball guts made sure he made his mark on the game. The three pointers weren't abundant today but the few from Kevin Hughes and Marcus were very welcome indeed. Rory Carroll was slow to get his mojo working on three pointers, but when he did, it made all the difference. Conor McCracken, Greg Campion and Dylan Kessie where always in the right place when needed and these things can make or break of a game if not done right. Well done to Coach Danny O'Mahony on the great job done throughout the season. Congratulations to all.
KUBS U16 Boys Take DMBB Cup Title
In an exciting mid-day game out in the Oblates, our under 16 boys did their club, coach and parents proud by having a convincing win over a skilled and tall Templeogue. The guys provided a near textbook team game with superb passing and shooting skills. It looks like all that time spent in the gym pays off on occasions like this. Well done to Coach Andy Flood and to all involved with this team.
KUBS Girls Take Div 3 Cup Title
With a fair bit of style and great defense work together with great shooting skills, the KUBS girls had a decisive win over Dublin Lions in the DLBB Cup Final out in the Oblates today. The girls were able to set the pace while playing a great passing game that highlighted a great team effort. It was a well deserved win for KUBS, even though Lions put in a major effort right to the final buzzer. Well done to Katie Vanhoutte for coaching these girls while playing, which is not easy, and getting them to a Cup Title. It was great work by all involved
