Killarney Community College – South West U16 Basketball Champions

On Monday 12th December, Killarney Community College travelled to St Munchins College in Limerick to contest the South West U16 regional playoffs. As champions of the Kerry region, we were pitted against St Patricks Shannon in the semi-final. We got off to a great start, with Daniil Aleksejenko, David Bartlett and Harry Doody extremely prominent. By half time, we had an unassailable lead, and this control was further aided by excellent play in the final quarters by Ger Cronin, Kacper Prusak and Caoimhin Boyne. Final score: Killarney Community College 42 St Patricks Shannon 18.
In the final, the hosts, St Munchins stood in our way. A school with a fine sporting tradition, we knew we were going to be up against it. The opening exchanges were nip and tuck, with St Munchins frustrating us with some excellent defence. By the end of the first quarter, we were level. The second quarter saw a fired up Killarney Community College blitz their opponents in the opening few minutes, scoring 12 unanswered points, 6 of which came from the irrepressible Nykyta Poutkalis. St Munchins were shell-shocked, and never recovered. The third quarter was dominated in particular by Jakobas Hintermeier and Ben Herlihy, both of whom picked up a high percentage of rebounds. Final score: Killarney Community College 38 St Munchins College 21.
This was a great team performance by each member of the panel with some excellent basketball played by everyone on the panel. Up next is the All Ireland playoffs on the 15th of January. Hopefully this is only the start of our journey!!
