U18 National Cup Weekend in Greendale.
KUBS come out on top.
Saturday and Sunday were busy days in Greendale as KUBS hosted the U18 Mens National Cup. The KUBS lads were first on the court to play Titans the Galway team who had unfortunate travelling conditions for their journey up that morning. KUBS took the lead and kept it to end 66 – 40 victors.
It was a 1.20pm start for the next game v Tolka Rovers. This would be a hard fought game with both teams having met often in the Dublin leagues. The KUBS boys again came out on top with a 65 – 32 win. That left our guys free until the Sunday morning 11.40am tip off. This time KUBS would face off against Oblates. Having watched this team on Saturday against Sligo we could see they where well capable of causing an upset. They certainly put up a good fight in both defence and offense. But it wasn’t to be their day either, what with the amazing passing skills of the play-maker Marcus Black, making sure KUBS finished on top with 66 – 40. Then to the final game on Sunday against Sligo All-Stars. This would be one of the stronger teams in the tournament and has a deep pool of talent on the bench. But after just a very close first quarter, things started to fall apart for them. Unnecessary fouls and scrappy play left them open to the strengths of the KUBS guys in particular Kevin Doran and Shane McCann who along with Kevin Hughes had tremendous games throughout the weekend and really played their hearts out. They battled hard back and forth to the final quarter where there was just no catching up on KUBS and it ended with a home club win of 87 – 63. That last win over Sligo would have had conversations started in Coach David Greenes house as his late mother Ann was from Enniscrone on the beautiful Killala Bay. The club is very proud of you David, and all the lads for all your achievements as a team. (Not forgetting the great job done by the team manager Gerry O'Meara.)
There was an early 10.00am start to the full day of games on Saturday, and a lot of work had already been done to prepare the gym for the event. We would like to thank everyone who made this a comfortable and smooth running tournament. Orla Phillips for doing a fantastic job organising the table, under the pressure of fast moving games. Frank and Dave and their helpers in the kitchen.
Division 3 Men Win Away to Naas
The Div3 Mens team travelled to Naas to meet the Serpents for a home game there. This is the first time the guys have had to make the journey to St Mary's College and they were greeted with a nice bright hall. The boys started off in great form with a number of lovely clean three pointers to notch up a nice lead. They didn't look like they were under much pressure but by the second half this Naas side had stepped up their game and were fighting for a comeback. They did manage to narrow the lead to about 12 points at one stage, but the KUBS lads swung it back around and took it to the final whistle with a 66 - 38 win. Everyone got time on court but Greg Campion certainly made the most of his time there. He was on fire with a great personal score of 22 points. Dylan Kessie was on 12 and Shane McCann had 8 points.
Well done guys.
