Second Year Boys
Massive well done to our second year boys who earned a hard fought 36-29 victory over a strong Castleknock side this afternoon. The lads just didn’t perform for three quarters of the game and found themselves trailing with three minutes remaining. However an impressive late scoring blitz from Anthony Daza, Mel Rabadan, Luke Kearns and Huming Wang secured victory. The lads are now guaranteed top spot in the group with one game to spare.
First Year Boys
Hard luck to our first year boys who put up a great fight in losing 50-30 to a strong castleknock community college side in today’s Leinster league game. A poor first quarter saw the lads losing 19-2 but they showed serious fight and effort to pull the game back to 30-22 midway through the third quarter. Just as it looked like the momentum had swung Larkin’s way the influential talisman Arnas picked up his fifth foul and had to leave the game. The lads kept fighting Untill the end and the never say die spirit and attitude was a joy to behold. Best on the day were Arnas, David, Adrian, Matuesz and our super shooter MVP Callum. Heads up guys and super effort.
After School Training
We had another super turnout at today’s after school junior boys basketball session. These lads are such a dedicated bunch who spend hours honing their skill.
