Tramore v Waterford Vikings
Vikings come out on top in a very good cup game
Men's Div Cup 17/04 19:45
Tramore 62 - 78 Waterford Vikings

Vikings senior men put in an excellent performance in what was a very good game in Tramore last night to reach the final of the men's cup. Though Vikings started well Tramore had the best of the opening quarter the highlight of which was a three pointer by Jack Murphy from well within his own half on the buzzer, this put Tramore 24 points to 20 in front.

The big issue for Vikings was their defence, their emphases and concentration had to be total if they were going to have any chance of making it through. A big improvement on both ends of the floor saw Vikings pull back the lead and take control of the game, Pepper and Herbert started to find their range from three point range with Sheehan, O'Rourke and Robinson scoring from close in. Vikings were ahead by the half and extended the lead to as many as 18 before Tramore started to hit back pulling the lead back to 13 but another big three from Herbert saw off the revival allowing the visitors an easier then expected win in the end 78 to 62. Having given up 24 points in the first quarter Vikings built the win on solid team defence giving up just 38 points in the next three quarters.

Vikings players and scorers: Sealy 4, Pepper 18, Lanigan, Murphy, O'Rourke 8, Herbert 25, Robinson 9, Sheehan 8, McGuire 4 and Kujundzic 2.

Tramore, O'Neill 10, Stone 2, McGuill 2, Nyhan, Tobin, McSherry 14, White, Szulc 16, Farrell 7, Murphy 11.
