Cumann na mBunscol Basketball Champions 2015!!

Posted by admin on February 16, 2015 in Uncategorized

Our boy’s team travelled to Newbridge last Thursday to play Kilashee N.S. in the Cumann na mBunscol Basketball final. This was a great occasion for the boys and we started strongly putting 4 points up on the scoreboard during the first quarter. Damien and Kevin were calm under pressure as they stepped up to the free throw line to put Kilberry ahead. We continued to dominate in the second quarter and went in to the second half with a ten point lead.
Kilashee, however, began to cause problems in the third quarter and our lead was reduced to six points going into the final quarter. Kilashee began to show their hand and pushed Kilberry all the way to the final whistle. They managed to claw back a couple of points from free throws but as we approached the final few minutes of the game, Kilberry dug deep and our defense held strong as the final whistle blew to the delight of the Kilberry team and supporters.
Joe O’Connor presented the trophy to team captain, Kevin Eustace and complimented Kilberry and Kilashee on a fantastic display of basketball skill. In a display of sincere sportsmanship, the Kilashee team asked Kilberry for a group photograph after the presentation and we anticipate an exciting rematch with them during the blitz in March.
Team: Kevin Eustace (Capt.), Darragh Foy, Scott Downey, Jamie Whelan, Dean Owens, Seamus Hickey, Christopher Wilson, Emmet Fanning, CiarĂ¡n Dunne, Cian McKenna, Alex Delaney and Damien Moore.

A team above all..Above all a team...!
