Both the boys U16 and U19 League Competitions kicked off this week with home matches against Schull Community College
The U16 boys were first up on Wednesday morning at 10:15 am. While the team may have been a little bit rusty this early in the season, they dominated the game from the start. This gave Ms. O'Mahony the opportunity to run her entire bench, and shake off the cobwebs before Thursday's National Cup match against Waterpark College in Waterford. The Skibbereen Community School boys ran out easy winners in the end, 68-15.
Next up was the under 19 team. While they faced a stiffer test, again all 14 players got to play and make their mark on the game. Skibbereen Community School had the match put to to bed by half time, with some very good team and individual scoring performances. This was a first schools' match for some of the players so well done to all. MVP for the match was Michael O'Sullivan 6th yr.
The next Challenge for both of these teams is a home game against the very physical Castletownbere on Tuesday October 16th, followed by what will undoubtably be their toughest test, away against Rosscarbery on October 18th.
Congratulations to the U16 Boys Basketball Team who beat Waterpark College, Waterford today in the first round of the National Schools Cup.
