KUBS SPOOK THE DEMONS
Sunday’s Mens Super League game, against UCC Demons, proved to be an exciting match. And a “match” it was in team strength and ability. After a slow start by the KUBS guys, things started to heat up as Demons really pushed ahead coming up to the half time buzzer. But whatever Coach Mark Ingle said in the dressing room worked a treat and now we had a game on. Defensively KUBS came back on ablaze. Suddenly the sure footed Demons we had seen in the first half were rattled and conceded turnovers as KUBS defended down the shot-clock. The pace quickened and bit by bit that lead that Demons had notched up so easily was disappearing rapidly. As we got into the last quarter the pressure was on the Cork lads big time. With a strong track record and League wins behind them Demons now looked spooked by a team on its first outing into the Super League. Coach Tim O’Halloran wore a worried expression, which is something he might not be too used to, as the last seconds of the game ticked away. In the end the Demons clinched it but only just. It’s exciting stuff to watch this KUBS team build on each game they play, and well done to all the guys who gave it everything they could to get it that close.
Final Score KUBS 74 – UCC Demons 77.

U17 Boys Cup Game Win
What a great win for the our U17 Boys today. They met Tolka in Greendale and it was all the more sweeter as it was a Cup game. A few of the guys were on fire, with some amazing shooting from Rory Howe and the ballin maestro Jamie McDonagh breaking ankles. Jack Dole and Kevin Brennan were strong on the day also. A great team effort that's building into something special under the direction of Coach Brian Edwards. Well done to all.
