Donegal Town BC 41 Blaze BC 43
Donegal Town BC u12 boys continued to improve with an exciting win over neighbours and league leaders Ballyshannon BC last Sunday. With a fantastic crowd turning out to support the lads they tore into the first quarter with the opening score from a much improved Oisin Mogan with Jake Graham 4pts, Owen Mc Partlan and finished off by Shea Byrne. Ballyshannon were slower to start but came back into the game to leave it 10-6 to the home team. The away side had the better of the 2nd as they threatened to take the lead but while Donegal struggled to keep the ball their Defense held out despite giving Ballyshannon extra chances as they turned the ball over. Half time 18-16. The Third was another tight affair as both teams will feel they can play better but there was very little between the sides right up to the finish were Niall Prendiville steadied the Donegal nerves along with 3pts from Daniel Quinn to take the win. This was Ballyshannons first loss of the season and send our lads into the Play off for 1st and 2nd to see who wins the league outright. This age group is really the highlight of the clubs season with the fantastic work being put in By Garry and Paul with great Numbers tuning out week in week out. Plus its was great to see such a great crowd out supporting both teams and no doubt these lads are gonna have some great battles over the coming years to hopefully drive each other on to greater things. Without hitting the heights they can Donegal players can thank Jake Graham MVP for a big performance to just about see them over the line while Prendiville, Byrne, Mc Partlan and Mc Gowan all had big games.
