We would like to thank Drogheda Ladies Basketball Club for bringing their Under 14 Girls team over to Virginia today to play a challenge game.
It was great for us to get to meet new people in the game and we look forward to meeting you all in again in the near future.
Big thanks goes to our referee for the game Paul Sheridan and our table officials Rory Bett, Sean McEvoy & Jake Verschoyle.
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.
East Cavan Eagles 23 Dunshaughlin Rockets 19
Blackwater Steelers 41 KUBS 43
Dunshaughlin Rockets 23 KUBS 36
KUBS 37 East Cavan Eagles 23
East Cavan Eagles 15 Blackwater Steelers 48
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.
