In a pulsating game, Mohill Mavericks came out on top in a 92-90 thriller after they were nearly caught at the end by Donegal in the Lonleitros League.
It would have been a grave injustice had Mohill lost this game for they played their hearts out. Mohill started brightly, leading 16-14 after the first quarter, stretching the lead to 38-34 by halftime thanks to some fantastic scores by Fiachra & Cian McGuinness & Tadhg Mulligan.
Great defence under the boards by Liam Rowley, Johnathan Reynolds & Alan Tuthill on front guard meant that Mohill led by ten points, 65 to 55 but in a rip roaring final quarter, Donegal scored a massive 35 points to Mohill’s 27 with the Leitrim lads holding firm to win by two points.
Fantastic win for Mohill and a great all round team performance.
Team: Cian McGuinness, Fiachra McGuinness, Tadhg Mulligan, Liam Rowley, Alan Tuthill, Jonathan Reynolds, Shane McGowan, Eoin Kenny. Coach John Farrell.
In the Ladies League, Mohill defeat Castlerea 51-42
