Courtesy Of Blue Demons BC:
Congratulations to Blue Demons Boys U15 who won the extremely prestigious Mr. John Coughlan Tournament today in the Parochial Hall. Coached by Stephen Hannigan and Bryan Forde, Blue Demons started strong by winning both pool games against Eanna of Dublin and St Brendan’s of Tralee to win their pool. Demons played Ballincollig in the quarter finals and played well and ran out winners 52-36. In the semi finals, Demons played Bobcats of Kerry in what was a very tight competitive game from start to finish.
In the final played before a large attendance, Blue Demons played Fr. Mathews in what was a rerun of previous battles. Demons started well to lead 12-9 at the end of the 1st. Demons again pushed the pace in the 2nd quarter with some big 3’s to stretch the lead to 13 points at half time(26-13) after a very good defensive performance as well. Demons again maintained the momentum to lead 40-21 at the end of the 3rd and eventually won on a score line of 44-27 after a very good performance from all involved.
Unfortunately, Mr. Coughlan was unable to make it in person today due to illness to present the trophy to the winners. We would like to wish Mr. Coughlan a speedy recovery.
