P Freeman 26 11 E Morrisson
G Leonard 13 7 B Carmody
M Wynne 9 6 J O'Dowd
Lundy Foods got off to a flying start, leading the away team from the tip, getting a 6-0 run in the first 2 minutes of play. After that Lundy's never looked back at the trailing Crescent team. While Crescent were big in the post they didn't box out enough allowing Paul Freeman, one of the new recruits to the Lundy team, to pull down 27 boards on the night, 13 of those offensive and put 10 back into the basket. At the end of the second quarter the score was 36-22 to Lundy foods, although this scoreline didnt exactly reflect the dominence of Lundy Foods.
After the interval the travelling team seemed more focussed and began to move the ball more efficiently. An end was put to this by the excellent hustling shown by Padraic Roche, another young player in his first season in Division 1. He took charge and ran the break leaving gaping holes for his team mates to score. Benefiting most of all from this was Gearoid Leonard, scoring 13 points. Crescent tried hard to come back into the game but were stopped time and time again inside by Paul Freeman, with 8 blocks. Crescent reverted to their outside shooting of Brian Carmody, who scored two three pointers despite being closely guarded. It was ultimatly to no avail as Lundy Foods won out with a final score of 73-42. Other players worth mentioning: Enda Morrison (Crescent) who scored 11 points, followed by John O'Dowd who scored 6 points for the away team. Martin Wynne, another new Lundy Foods underage player, who came on the court for the first time last night with 5 mins left on the clock and chalked up 9 points from the fast break. A good first victory of the season for Lundy Foods.
