Saturday 9th & 10th March Virginia College & Mullagh Sports Centre Eagles Basketball Host Senior Top 4s
East Cavan Eagles Basketball Club are delighted to have again been selected to host the NEBB Senior Men’s & Senior Women’s Top Four Competition.
This year we will be using two venues to play the games.
Virginia College & Mullagh Sports Center will each host games.
The Senior Men’s Semi-Finals take place in Virginia College as follows.
Semi- Final 1. 5.30 pm
Drogheda Bullets v Navan Cougars
Drogheda Bullets finish with an impressive no loss top of the league position. Last time out Bullets had a strong win over Cougars 80 56 so odds are in their favour to get to the finals but Top 4s are always good for surprises and Navan have shown their determination in this competition before.
Navan Cougars face the league winners Drogheda Bullets in this years semi final. Finishing fourth leaves them with a battle on their hands but they have been here before and gone on to win.
Semi-Final 2 7:30pm
East Cavan Eagles v Black Water Steelers
Eagles finish second in the table for the Men’s League and face off against Black Water Steelers in the semi final. With a victory to each in the league its hard to call who the favorite is for this game but promises to be a cracker. Will the experienced Eagles win out over the upcoming youth in Steelers or will the victory go to the young bloods ?
Black Water Steelers finished 3 rd in the league a position they are sure to be happy with in their first year in the league. As the season progressed they grew in confidence and gained valuable points. Their head to head with Eagles will be interesting as they took the win last time out.
The Senior Ladies Semi-Finals take place in Mullagh Sports Center as follows.
Semi-Final 1 5:30 pm
East Cavan Eagles v Dunshaughlin Rockets
Eagles Ladies finished second in the league on points difference with Muckno Lakers. This sees them face Dunshaughlin Rockets in the semi finals. A tough opposition to overcome as only 1 point seperated these two teams in their last outing. With the experience of National Cup semi final on their side Eagles are strong contenders for this game and should have the experience to close out Rockets but only time will tell.
Dunshaughlin Rockets finish 3 rd in the lady’s league and face host team rivals East Cavan Eagles in the semi finals. Last time these teams met was a close affair with Eagles just getting the win by 1 point on a scoreline of 66 to 65, so this is shaping up to be a great game.
Semi-Final 2 7:30 pm
Muckno Lakers v Drogheda Sparks
Muckno Lakers take league leader position going into the Top 4 competition and see them take on Drogheda Sparks. Two veteran teams of the game both with a wealth of experience. Will Gerry’s side be victorious and win through to the finals on Sunday or will Sparks forge ahead?
Drogheda Sparks have fourth place position and face off against old rivals Muckno Lakers. Both sides have experience of pressure games and will be looking to take their place in the finals in what should be an exciting semi final. NEBB TOP 4 FINALS
