Limerick Lions u/16 game report Cork Cup v Limerick Lakers

Limerick Lions U/16 travelled to Cork last Sat to face Limerick Lakers in the Cork Cup and came away comfortable winners with a score of 55-18. Lions were always in control and led the 1st qt by 16 – 4 with  Karolis Vitkaistis and Jack Coyne leading the scoring .The second qt saw the introduction of Eoghan O Donnell who pitched in two lovely jumpers .


Lions defence was picking off steals at will and ran a very effective fast break. Ian Campbell  and Cathal Morrissey controlled both offence and defence boards . Christian Ryan and Damien Hyrnezuk  and Conor Flynn played  very  well on defence . Lions pushed on to lead by 29 – 9 at half time , Coach Coyne was impressed with the way the squad ran their plays  with some great baskets scored .In fairness to Lakers they battled on but Lions were too strong for them  running out winners by 55-18. Next up is Ennis Panthers next Sun 2nd Dec .
