UCC Demons 71 (43)

UL Eagles 76 (42)


There was an electric atmosphere last night in a packed Neptune Stadium as bitter Cork rivals UCC Demons and Bord Gais Neptune fought it out for a precious cup final spot on January 25th in Dublin.

When the final whistle blew there were scenes of unbridled joy as starved-for-success Neptune fans celebrated a famous win for their club.

The win came despite a shaky start from Neptune that saw Demons score ten unanswered points with baskets from Ciaran OSullivan and Kenton Walker before Ger Noonan finally stopped the bleeding with a basket in return.

The score was 15 to 2 before Neptune found any rhythm and settled into the game. By quarters end they had clawed the lead back to just four points with a three-quarter court press proving extremely effective in slowing down the Demons onslaught.

While Demons looked to have regained control in the second quarter as Shane Duggan provided a spark off the bench a crucial third foul for captain Shane Coughlan left the leaders devoid of on-court direction allowing Neptune once again back into the contest.

At halftime the score was 43 42 to Demons as momentum swung between the two sides. Back to back three pointers for Gary Walsh with six minutes left in the third gave Neptune their first lead of the game. By quarters end that lead was ten as Walshs hot shooting continued.

A tense fourth quarter saw limited scoring as both sides fought with everything they had to claim a spot in the final. The stagnated play suited Neptune who were in the lead and it was Michael McGinns layup with just under two minutes to go that sealed it giving his side a nine point advantage.

A late flourish from Demons was not enough, the final score ending

UCC Demons 71 (43) (K Walker 27, C OSullivan 17, S Coughlan 10) Bord Gais Neptune 76 (42) (D Townes 21, G Walsh 20, M McGinn 9)

UL Eagles 58 (28)

UCD Marian 50 (25)


A scrappy, low-scoring but hard-fought second SuperLeague National Cup semi-final saw defending champions UL Eagles advance, just about, against a gamey UCD Marian.

Eagles started the game anything like defending champs with a disjointed first quarter effort that saw them register just ten points on only 25 per cent shooting with Marian doing little better but ahead by five with a score of 15.

While neither team lacked for any effort and there was plenty of superb skill on display, the ball would simply not drop for any player on a regular basis and incredibly neither team managed to break the 30 point mark by half time, the score at the break 28 to 25 in favour of Eagles.

Defence continued to dominate the affair in the second half as a frustrated Scott Kinevane tried to single handily up the game-tempo by pushing the fast break at every opportunity. While the pace quickened, the scoring did not meaning neither side was able to break free of the other, setting up a second grand-stand finish in a row in the Neptune Stadium.

A monstrous block and subsequent score of his own by UL American Rob Taylor indicated that he may take over the game but he was quickly answered by a corner three pointer by Marians Thomas Vigliano that served notice the challengers from Dublin would not be so easily set aside.

With under a minute to go and the teams tied Eagles captain Neil Campbell hit a crucial go ahead basket. Marian had chances to respond but as had been the case missed open looks. Talyor then benefited from a contentious call while driving to the basket on the next play allowing him to seal the contest at the free-throw line.

UL Eagles 58 (28) (N Campbell 15, S Kinevane 14, R Taylor 14) UCD Marian 50 (25) (T Vigliano 14, C Meany 10, N Meany 8)
