UCC Demons last second win enough to preserve unbeaten start to season

The novelty of a Bank Holiday Monday game was not enough of an oddity to end UCC Demons early season winning streak as they notched their fifth straight win in the Nivea For Mens Superleague with a home win against DCU Saints.

It certainly was not easy however as Demons trailed with just 20 seconds remaining in the game after Mark Nagle connected on two free throws to give the Dubliners a one point lead. Shane Coughlan showed his veteran leadership however and took advantage of a quick inbound to travel coast to coast and get what turned out to be the winning basket.

While Saints managed to get off one last shot, it fell by the wayside and Demons were able to celebrate a first win with their new American player, Kenton Walker, who this week replaced Delwan Graham as Demons hope to establish a greater inside presence to their offence.

Our offence was bit sloppy but that is to be expected with Kentons first game, said Demons head coach Paul Kelleher after the game.

We lead all game but they had the momentum from the second quarter on and caused a few bad turnovers from us. We are delighted to just get the win, we are a long way from where we need to be but every win is important in this league.

Defending champions UL Eagles got themselves back to winning ways over the weekend with a convincing 73 to 61 win over UCD Marian in Dublin.

A strong performance by veteran campaigner Rob Lynch, who scored 22 points in the contest, helped Eagles get the much needed win a week after losing to table toppers UCC Demons at home.

Head coach Mark Keenan was deservedly proud of his players after the game, singling out the teams commitment to winning for special praise.

I was delighted with our effort and the whole performance, he said.

We really turned up the defensive pressure in the fourth quarter. It was a tight enough game but we felt like if we kept at it we would wear down them down eventually and that is what we did in the end.

The other Nivea For Mens Superleague game on Saturday saw another win for a road team in Dublin as Bord Gais Neptune easily saw off the challenge of Killester in the IWA centre in Clontarf.

After losing their first three games of the season, Neptune could have been forgiven for doubting themselves. They have persevered however and with Saturdays win, have now won back to back road games and can genuinely feel confident about re-launching a title challenge.

Speaking after the 90 to 63 win, Neptune head coach Mark Scannell was quick to credit a good spread of scoring for his teams success.

90 points is a lot to put up in a game and we did that tonight, he said.

We had a bunch of guys scoring in good numbers and that is what you want. We got a lot of use out of switching defences and getting some full court pressure and that worked really well for us in the game too.
