ESB Men's First Division. (October 21)

St. Mary's Castleisland 103
Lundy Foods Ballina 70

Lundy Foods made the long trip to Castleisland with the home team emerging victorious in a bruising encounter. Ballina with a starting five of Fergus Foody, David Melia, Geariod Leonard Ronan Ryan and Paul Freeman could not match the outside shooting of Castleislands Declan Wall and Tom Fleming, leaving the scores 22 -4 after five minutes.
At this stage Padraic Roche and Colm Leonard were introduced and this two young players brought a much needed spark to the team, leaving the scores 47-27 down at the break. Ballina started the second half with David Melia scoring from outside and Aidan Tighe scoring with some great drives to the basket.

In the third quarter Lundys were putting the home team under pressure and two Castleisland players were disqualified in what was becoming a very physical game, by the end of the game the home team had six players fouled out and the away had two. In the final quarter Lundys with four seventeen year old players on court, played great fast break basketball .The future is very bright for this very young and talented team with the average age just nineteen. Best for the home were Darby Buckley, Mike Broderick and the impressive point guard Declan Wall. Lundy Foods had good performances from Aidan Tighe, David Melia, Colm Leonard and Padraic Roche.
Lundy Foods are away to Queens Belfast Next Saturday.
