2nd Years are the Midlands Basketball Champions

Ms Barry and Mr Kelly would like to congratulate the 2nd Year boys’ basketball team on winning the Midlands C final in Portlaoise on March 13th. The boys were looking forward to playing against Moate CS who had beaten them in last year's final by 1 point.

The game began well for KTCS with Conor McGovern scoring 3 excellent early baskets and Matiss Zaharius adding another. They lead 8-6 at the end of the 1st quarter. Baskets from Corey Flynn, Diarmuid Critchley and Thomas Murphy increased the lead to 16-6 at half time.

Moate came back strong in the 3rd quarter and although Conor and Eoin Breen registered some good baskets the lead was reduced to 4 points heading into the final quarter 20-16. The final quarter was nail biting and KTCS had to dig deep to stay on top. Corey Flynn, Jack O'Neill and Eoin Breen scored vital baskets but with 10 seconds left on the clock Moate equalled the score at 26-26. Corey Flynn was fouled under the basket with 5 seconds left on the clock and showed nerves of steel to score one of his shots and win the title for KTCS.

Thanks to Ms Lalor, Calvin Phillips, Sean Mc Govern, Niall Donnelly and Ian Knight for giving up their time to help out and thanks to Chris O’Mahoney, James Ebbs, Marvin Abdula and William Tsang for their support.
