The first quarter was a great team performance. The team came out at the start with a desire to start well and seemed to want the win more than their opposition. St.Davids had a big lead at the end of the first quarter with Glenn Halligan scoring four baskets and Ignacio Fernandez scoring three. Ignacio also ended the first quarter with two blocks and a further steals.
The lads were still eager to win in the second quarter with baskets from Quintin Lawler Maher and two baskets from Mark McConnell. More baskets from Ignacio Fernandez and Dylan Anderson gave St.Davids a healthy lead at half time. Star performances in this quarter came from Ignacio Fernandez and Mark McConnell.
The third quarter started off very well with Ignacio scoring a three pointer. Ignacio then set up Quintin for another basket. More baskets followed for Ignacio, Dylan Anderson and Glenn Halligan. In this quarter Ignacio scored his twentieth point of the game.
In the final quarter the lads showed no nerves and finished the job off with two baskets from Mark McConnell, four baskets from Ignacio and three baskets from Glenn Halligan. It was overall great play from the team and they showed great commitment in the final quarter.
A big well done to the lads who qualified for the final after this massive 60-43 victory. Stand out performances came from Ignacio Fernandez scoring fourteen baskets, having seven steals and three rebounds, Glenn Halligan scoring nine baskets and had two rebounds and Mark McConnell scoring five baskets. Overall it was a great team performance that Ms.Courtney and Ms.Ní Chathain were very proud of. Hopefully the lads can bring home the trophy from the final and hopefully they can play as well as they played in this semi-final.
