NATIONAL CUP FINALS 2012 PREVIEW - Feb 6, 2012

NATIONAL CUP FINALS 2012 PREVIEW

The 2012 National Cup Final will take place on Friday night and will feature a potentially mouth watering all Munster affair when UCC Demons and UL Eagles clash in the final of the Mens SuperLeague National Cup.

In the Womens decider, UL will be bidding to end DCU Mercys hopes of a third successive cup title.

UCC Demons will be looking to make it a third win this season against UL Eagles when they clash on Friday night in the final of the 2012 Mens SuperLeague National Cup.

The Cork giants Demons put in a storming third quarter in their first league clash and eventually ran out comfortable 14 point winners.
When the teams met a month later in Cork Demons edged the Eagles by five points.

UL Eagles have a vast amount of experience where all but one of their first six players have years of experience of playing in the USA in college, said Demons Head Coach Paul Kelleher. Rob Lynch and Matt Hall are previous winners, while Rob Taylor and Jason Killeen have European experience so this tells you the magnitude of the task ahead of us on Friday night. We are going to have to work if we are to get the desired result we are looking for.
UL Eagles will be hoping their Head Coach Mark Keenans vastly experienced cup CV will stand to them when they face Demons.

Keenan lead Killester to the cup title in 2010 before a late rally from UCD Marian thwarted his hopes of back to back trophies in 2011.
UCC Demons have shown what a powerful team they are with some convincing wins over Neptune and Belfast Star over the last few weeks, said Keenan. Simply, we will need to be at our best in order to challenge for Cup honours. They have multiple players that can score big so team defence will be the key to our challenge.

When Demons defeated UL the Limerick side did not have American Robert Taylor, who on his day is a serious threat going to the hoop.
Carlton Cuff could be the Demons ace given the job of stopping Taylors threat.
Eagles also have 610 Jason Killeen and he will match up with Demons American Shawn Atupem.
The contributions of UCC Demons captain Shane Coughlan and Niall OReilly will be a key to the destination of this final.
Coughlan is an outstanding leader that likes nothing better than showing his skills on the big stage as he still holds the record of being the only Irish player to be awarded MVP in the consecutive cup finals of 2004/2005.
Niall OReilly is a born warrior and when you throw in the likes of Niall Murphy, Ciaran OSullivan, Shane Duggan and Kyle Hosford they have assembled a serious panel of players.
Matt Hall and Niall Campbell are renowned for keeping their best form against UCC Demons and the Cork side will need to be focused on their threats outside the perimeter in what should be an intriguing encounter.
In the Womens SuperLeague National cup final, DCU Mercy go head to head with UL with the Dublin side bidding to win their third consecutive title.
Mercys hopes of claiming that feat will be tested to the hilt by a UL outfit, who havent experienced defeat in over a year of action.

We are up against a massive test against a UL side who havent experienced defeat in quite a while, said Mercy Head Coach Mark Ingle. They will be huge favourites coming into this final. They already beat us in the league convincingly this season but we were very poor on the day.

Its the cup and expect the unexpected, added Ingle. The three is a row is a nice prospect but not something you really think about. Its a new cup, a new year and hopefully we can manage to win it.
UL will be desperate their unbeaten run doesnt end up coming unstuck on the most important weekend of the clubs recent history.
This is our biggest game so far of the season, said UL Head Coach James Weldon. We take great confidence from our unbeaten record, its not something that is playing on our minds ahead of this game.
You cannot read too much into the league game earlier in the season, he added. DCU probably werent playing as well as they could and are playing much better at the moment. DCUs recent record in the cup is strong and that is great testament to their coach Mark Ingle and a great group of players. Its a one off game but from our point of view we have been consistently strong this year and we hope it will continue at the weekend.
