Queens Eagles will take the scrappy win!

Queens Eagles BC 63 - 52 Tyrone Towers II

Queens vs Towers - Thurs 19 Oct 2017

In what turned out to be a scrappy affair, Queens came out on top in this game. From the off, Queens took the lead, pushing the ball and running the plays. This lead to Towers getting into foul trouble in the first quarter. However, they hung in and were only a few baskets down at the end of the first with Gervin showing fight for the Tyrone team.

The second quarter started like the first for Queens, except this time they pushed Towers on both ends of the court. A young Queens team with some rookies in their ranks used good cuts to get easy looks at the basket. The quarter ended with Queens up 11 and seemingly in the driving seat.

The third quarter, however, did not go as planned for the young Belfast side. Some good defense and rebounding limited scores and gave easy fast break points for the Tyrone side even drawing them to within a couple of scores. However, Queens fought back and when they got a hang of the Tyrone zone showed a real know how in breaking it down.

The fourth quarter was scrappy. Even though Queens went up big early on they gave away foul after foul and ended up in early foul trouble. The rest of the quarter was a sequence of turnovers by both teams. The game ended with what seemed a comfortable score line which really wasn’t. Queens will take the W and move on to meet the Pumas next week.

Queens Eagles BC v BC Wolves II
A great game fopr the start of the season for QueensDiv v BC Wolves!

Queens Eagles BC 57 - 60 BC Wolves II

Queens vs Wolves

Well, that was some start to the season! Queens, coming in under the guidance of Mark McCabe, had a young side, backed up with a few older individuals. The match started with a few steals for the young Queens side but Wolves hit back with several threes. Queens showed great work ethic but Wolves had an edge in terms of rebounding which proved to be Queens Achilles heal.

The second quarter showed glimpses of some good structured play by the young Queens side with play which they can build on throughout the year with a bit more time. Once again Wolves were out rebounding Queens and getting some easy baskets because of it. However, at the end of the second quarter Queens only trailed by a couple of baskets. 28-33

The third quarter is where the home team had most success. They out ran their opponents and with some good cuts by Monz and Smyth they were able to go ahead and take the lead. Wolves kept chipping away, especially in the rebound department. Queens failed to capitalise on the other team getting into foul trouble very early on, by missing several free throws.

Both teams went into the final quarter with a chance of a win for both. Wolves used some of their experience however to get them over the line. They hit several three pointers down the stretch which proved too much for the young Queens side.

Final score 57 - 60

Devine putting on a strong showing in the post. The second qtr finished 27-18 to Elks. Ballyshannon rallied back with great play from L. Rooney, but Elks proved to have too much height in the interior with great inside play. The third finished 41-24 to Elks.
