Tricky away games in Dunshaughlin Blackwater Steelers took 5 teams up to Dunshaughlin Rockets on Sunday but only managed 2 wins from 5 games. The day started off brilliantly when the U 12 Dev Boys took to the floor for a wonderful battle with the home side. This game had everything as both sides went full throttle. The Rockets had the better of the early skirmishes and took the lead, but the Steelers resolve did not weaken as they kept in touch up to half time. The advantage switched a couple of times in the third and the fourth, and all the smart money was on overtime. With around 40 seconds to go the Monaghan side took a decisive lead and despite the best efforts of the Rockets it finished Dunshaughlin Rockets 25pts Blackwater Steelers 27pts. U 18 Boys : Rockets 70pts Blackwater Steelers 47pts The U 18 boys came up short against a faster, sharper Rockets team and really succumbed too easily to what was on the day a better Rockets team. What this team lack is cohesive teamwork and that was certainly exposed in this game. This result will hurt their chances of a top four place. Team & Scorers: S. Uglis 30pts, C. McKenna 7pts, C. Liddle 7pts, L. McKenna 2pts, K. Ziubrys 1pt, D. McKenna and K. McCaffrey. U 14 Dev Boys: Rockets 17pts Blackwater Steelers 40pts This was a good win for these lads all be it against one of the easier oppositions and leaves them knocking on the door of the top four play offs. They won 3 out of the 4 quarters and evidence of an improving understanding of the game is emerging. Team & Scorers: O. Reilly 12pts, M. McNally 8pts, L. Irwin 6pts, M. Aughey 4pts, J. Lambrindis 4pts, E. McGinn 2pts, D. McGinnity 2pts, S. Cudden 2pts, F. Boonstra, A. Hall, R. Conway and R. McMahon. U. 14 Girls: Rockets 46pts Blackwater Steelers 26pts The elusive win still evades the 14 Girls this season but they competed well throughout the game . Team & Scorers: D. Cawley 7pts, G. McCongaille 2pts, A. McGinnity 7pts, E. Curran 4pts, A. McSkeane 3pts, L. Lennon, S. Healy, C. O Neil, S. O Donnell and C Nally 3pts. U 14 A Boys: Rockets 38pts Blackwater Steelers 33pts. This game was tight throughout, in fact there was only 1pt between the teams in 3 out of the 4 quarters but unfortunately it fell on the Rockets side. The lads worked hard throughout and were a little unlucky. Team & Scorers: J. Wright 7pts, B. O Brien 6pts, H. Colleran 5pts, J. Murphy 3pts, A. Elsayed 3pts, S. Woods 3pts, A. McKnight 2pts, C. Murphy 2pts, J. McConnan 2pts and A. Walsh.  No Games next weekend as the All Ireland Schools Play Offs are being hosted in the area.
