Garvey’s Tralee Warriors produced a performance of real quality, determination and resolve as they saw off the challenge of Griffith College Templeogue in convincing fashion on Saturday night. The Warriors led throughout and a hugely impressive third quarter, in which they outscored the visitors by 25-12, moved the Warriors into position to see out the win by 99-90 in the end.
Templeogue got to work early in the fourth in their attempt to turn the contest around with scores from Lorcan Murphy, Mellini and Puff Summers but threes from Quigley and captain Fergal O’Sullivan kept the visitors at arm’s length. With no sign of a dramatic comeback the game meandered its way to the inevitable conclusion with Calixte turning on the style with quality scores from either side of the arc. Lorcan Murphy did provide an entertaining cameo late on with his typical acrobatics, but it served simply to add some respectability to the final scoreline as the Warriors sealed an impressive 99-90 win in the end.
