It was the turn of our underage (12 & 14) to entertain the assembled masses on Sunday at Virginia College and they did not let us down. These two games against Carrick Rockets proved as the perfect appetiser to a truly wonderful game of basketball between our Under 16 Girls and Dunshaughlin Rockets Under 16’s. Dunshaughlin came out on top in a real nail biter that finished East Cavan Eagles 40-41 Dunshaughlin Rockets.
Such is the strength in depth in the NEAB that both Dunshaughlin Rockets & East Cavan Eagles were able to field and Under 15’s girls challenge match as the perfect end to a perfect day.
We look forward to many such more days.
Thanks go to Bernard for the pictures.

January saw East Cavan Eagles get back to basketball as we welcomed Dunshaughlin Rockets to Virginia on the 10th and 11th of January.
Saturday was the turn of the boys teams and featured Under 12, Under 13, Under 14 & Under 16 teams vie for honours for their respective clubs.
Sunday saw the girls steal the show with Under 11, Under 12 & Under 14 teams partake whilst the Under 18 Boys finished off the show.
It really was a terrific 2 days of basketball with some excellent games. We look forward to many more days like this.
As always these days would be impossible without referees and table officials, thanks to Martin Flynn, Enda O’Brien, Paul Sheridan, Ben Kelly Flynn, Michael Smollen & Chloe McElhinney.
Thanks also to all the parents who helped out with refreshments on both days.
We look forward to the fun continuing this coming weekend in Virginia College again with action on both Saturday & Sunday with visits from both Carrick Rockets and Dunshaughlin Rockets…….come down and support.
