Fr Mathews 73 Scotts Lak­ers St Paul’s 105

THE win­ning league run con­tin­ued for Scotts Lak­ers at the Fr Mathews Arena in Cork last Tues­day week when they recorded a com­pre­hen­sive 32-point vic­tory over Fr Mathews.

De­spite lin­ing out again with­out Papito Her­sisia, the Kil­lar­ney side turned in their most im­pres­sive per­for­mance of the sea­son to ex­tend their win­ning league record to eleven wins and just two losses.

Scotts Lak­ers were al­ways in con­trol in this match lead­ing 24-12 af­ter eight min­utes while a buzzer beat­ing three-pointer from team cap­tain Mark Greene gave them a 26-17 lead at the end of the first quar­ter. They ex­tended their ad­van­tage to 15 points mid­way through the sec­ond quar­ter and they dom­i­nated for the re­main­der of the half to lead 60-34 at the in­ter­val break.

The game seemed to be well out of Fr Mathews reach at this stage as Lak­ers led 76-47 mid­way through the third quar­ter. It was a com­mand­ing 89-57 lead at the end of the third pe­riod.

The home side strug­gled to make any im­pact and Scotts Lak­ers ran out easy win­ners in the end. With six play­ers on dou­ble scor­ing fig­ures and con­vert­ing a whop­ping 17 three-point­ers, this was a match that Scotts Lak­ers were never go­ing to lose.

The out­stand­ing Sean O’Brien and Mark Greene sank five threes each along with three each from Dail­ian Ma­son and Cian Cler­non and one from Sea­mus Bros­nan. SCOTTS LAK­ERS: Sean O’Brien 26, Mark Greene 20, Dail­ian Ma­son 17, Sea­mus Bros­nan 14, Cian Cler­non 12, An­drew Fitzger­ald 11, Padraig Lucey 5, Shane McCarthy, James Mur­phy.

FA­THER MATHEWS: Mike McGinn 19, Kevin Gar­cia 11, Shane Duggan 8, Deon Baker 7
