The first day of the Subway Schools All Ireland Cup finals went off with a bang at the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght as Templeogue College overcame St Malachy’s of Belfast to win the U19 A boys’ final.

 

Templeogue’s Matthew Harper was crowned MVP of the game but had a huge supporting cast around him, including Iarla McKeon, Sam, and Jack Walsh. 

 

St Malachy’s were also dominant across the floor, with CJ Fulton one of the brightest stars on the court for the Belfast team.

 

Elsewhere, Colaiste Pobail Setanta secured the U19 C girls’ title with a 49-60 point win over Carrick-on-Shannon Community School. 

 

Setanta’s Katie Williamson powered her side home to a superb victory with a performance that included a whopping 30 points for her side. 

 

Strong displays all round from Setanta included Milicia Stankovic on point, and Mary Jane Obijuru, in particular, found Williamson inside time and time again. Sligo Grammar had too much firepower for St Munchin’s of Limerick in the U16 C boys’ final. 

 

A bravura display from Sligo’s Divine Akude was one of the big talking points of the game, as he not only chipped in with 26 points but was working hard under the boards at the other end to secure vital rebounds for his side. 

 

St Munchin’s were led by the in-form Reece Barry and Josh Callanan, but despite a late comeback in the fourth quarter, they couldn’t close the gap.

 

The final game of the day saw St Colmcille’s Community School Kncoklyon crowned Subway All Ireland U16 C girls’ champions with a determined and hard-fought win over Jesus & Mary Gortnor Abbey. 

 

The Knocklyon school finished with 46 points in total, with Emma Mullins scoring 30. With countless rebounds and assists, the talented young player was one of the standouts of the day.
