A hugely impressive performance from our second year boys Bball team in the East Leinster Quarter final resulted in a 45-20 victory over St Declan’s Cabra. The lads raced out of the blocks to take a commanding 13-5 first quarter lead after some fine baskets from super captain Luke Kearns and the excellent first year Arnas Mazrimas. A second quarter opening three point shot from Taylor Savage kept the momentum flowing in Larkin’s favour and Rabadan and Bobko kept the score board ticking over to give Larkin a 16 point half time lead of 24-8. There was to be no let up from the lads as strong showings from Hogan, Daza and Wang set Larkin on the way to a superb victory. We now meet old friends and rivals St Colmcilles in what should be an exciting semi final clash. The lads have also qualified for the All Ireland playoffs after confirming a top 4 finish in the region. Superb work. Scorers: Bobko 8, Kearns 9, Rabadan 6, Mazrimas 8, Wang 5, Daza 4, Savage 3, Hogan 2.
