Fast Break By The Lake 2 Day 3

And so it’s the final day of this years Fast Break by the Lake Basketball Tournament and the turn of the Under 18 girls. Unfortunately Blackwater Steelers were unable to field a team and we were unable to find a replacement team on short notice.

That left us with East Cavan Eagles, Muckno Lakers & Swords Basketball Club in the final day.

The results.

Game 1

Muckno Lakers 23 East Cavan Eagles 22

Game 2

Swords 24 East Cavan Eagles 42

Game 3

Muckno Lakers 40 Swords 17

Plate Final

Muckno Lakers 54 Swords 22

Cup Final

This years tournament proved to be a great success. It was indeed a very ambitious step up from last years’ one day affair to launch a tournament lasting 3 days for 3 different age groups. It’s success goes to prove that there is a huge appetite not only in our own region but also in other regions around the country for these type of  “blitz” days.

We have  had lot’s of inquiries from clubs around the country wanting to continue with games of this type throughout the off season. Watch this space.

This years tournament not only provided the opportunity for our girls to face competition from other regions but also for the parents of the girls and boys to get involved with some fundraising for the clubs latest acquisition, a defibrillator, a very important addition for the health & safety of our children.

We would once again like to thank all for their support in making this tournament success particularly Tractamotors/Hankook, our parents, Virginia College and all the clubs who participated.

 

We must also sa a big thank you to a group of people without whom the whole thing could not have happened at all, the referees, Martin Flynn, Paul O Hanlon, Daniel Logan, Paul Sheridan & Dotie Dulska. A big thank you also to our table officials, all club members who have been great not only for the tournament but for the whole season.

Thanks also for the kind messages received from the clubs after the tournament, we look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

Fast Break by the Lake 2 Day 1

Day 1 of our tournament saw KUBS from Dublin, Dunshaughlin Rockets from Meath and Blackwater Steelers from Monaghan converge on Virginia Co. Cavan to play basketball.

Day 1 featured the Under 14 Girls from the four clubs including our own East Cavan Eagles.

Game 1 

East Cavan Eagles 23 Dunshaughlin Rockets 19

Game 2

Blackwater Steelers 41 KUBS 43

Game 3

Dunshaughlin Rockets 23 KUBS 36

Game 4

KUBS 37 East Cavan Eagles 23

Game 5

East Cavan Eagles 15 Blackwater Steelers 48

Game 6

KUBS 41 Dunshaughlin Rockets 16

So this left only 2 games, our Plate & Cup finals. Eagles would face Rockets in The Plate while KUBS would take on Steelers. Dunshaughlin Rockers were the winners in The Plate overcoming Eagles 33- 41. This was a great game and proved a worthy precursor to The Final which went to overtime with a great 3 point buzzer beater by KUBS to level the game at full time and KUBS went on to win the game 47-39.

We hope everyone enjoyed the day as much as we did. It was a great experience for all the players to get to play players from different regions. We hope to see ou all back again soon.

We would also like to thank our sponsors for the tournament Tractamotors & Hankook in Cavan.

The parents have been a great help and our thanks also goes to them.
