In the U15 Semi Final we faced near neighbours Castleisland in what proved to be the best and closest game of the day. The first quarter was close with John McMahon scoring 4 points to leave Killeentierna leading 6 to 5 , but a great 2nd quarter where Kieran Griffin Scored 4 points and a great Leona McEnery basket saw Killentierna lead by 7 at half time 12 to 5. Killeentierna put up a great defensive performance in the 3rd quarter keeping Castleisland scoreless and this was the platform for us to run out deserving winners 23 to 11. The Final was a very one sided affair with Killeentierna totally dominant against a gallant Oylegate Team from Wexford. Leading 14 to 0 at half time , Killeentierna went on to keep their opponents scoreless for the whole game and added another 22 points to win 36-0.

Again Killeentierna were fast out of the blocks playing some scintillating basketball to build up a comfortable 22 to 3 lead at half time.

Leading the way on the scoring were Shane Brosnan on 8 points and Coleen Breen and Pataire Fleming on 6 points each. The game continued to go really well for us after the break and we led 39 to 2 after the 3rs quarter and even though we tired and conceded some scores in the final quarter the result was never in doubt and we ran out easy winners on a score of 45 points to 6.
