County Basketball Champions
Friday 4th December saw the senior boys basketball team of Davis College take on St. Fachtna's of Skibbereen in the county final at Neptune Stadium. The atmosphere was electric with a large number of supporters in attendance. The teams were very evenly matched but St. Fachtna's managed to hold the lead for three quarters. The Davis boys were very unlucky with a lot of shots rolling around the rim but always kept their heads up and played great defence.
In the fourth quarter, the Davis College boys really settled down, even though they were trailing by 7 points they refused to give up. The reintroduction of Stephen Buckley at this time proved crucial. He scored the first 5 points of the quarter, a beautifully executed 3 point shot followed by 2 from the free throw line.
The Skibb boys had no answer and were visibly tired. With scores from Dylan Hughes, Noah Zahradnik and Adam Finnegan, Davis College powered ahead winning the quarter 19-4 and the game on a score line of 51-43.
Dylan Hughes (24), Stephen Buckley (11), Adam Finnegan (6), Bao Tung (4), Noah Zahradnik (4), Bobby Kennedy (2), Gary Buckley, Lewis Ridge, Colin Davitt, Jack O'Connor, Jerome Murphy, Dylan Hyland
