There was an entertaining day of basketball yesterday in Virginia College as we welcomed Muckno Lakers from Castleblaney. Our under 10 Academy players started proceedings with challenge games between our ‘Hawks’ and ‘Falcon’ teams with forty of our boys and girls taking to the court for their first taste of full court games.
They were followed by our under 16 boys put in a good performance, but were unable to match a powerful Muckno team. Despite best efforts Muckno proved too strong with a final score of 23-65.
Our under 12 girls faced a Muckno team who were unbeaten all year. The girls were keen to reverse the five point loss they had suffered last September. The girls had a fantastic game and recorded a well deserved victory by 39-22.
The under 12 boys game was an entertaining match up between two eager and capable teams. A fantastic half court buzzer beater was one of many highlights in a competitive game which saw Muckno winning by a margin of 15-29.
The under 18 boys game didn’t fail to disappoint, with both teams showing high levels of competitiveness, skill and athleticism. The enthusiastic crowd was rewarded with a great spectacle of basketball with Eagles securing the win by 73-54.
We wish Muckno Ladies the very best of luck today as they take on Limerick (and Nadine) in the National Arena today.
Eagles traveled en masse to Dundalk on Sunday. A pretty early start with the first game tipping off at 10 AM for our Under 12 Boys.
