Garvey’s Tralee Warriors early season unbeaten run came to an end last night when they suffered their first defeat of the campaign going down 97-91 to NUIG Maree at the Kingfisher Arena in Galway.
In an entertaining opening quarter the sides went score for score early with Aaron Calixte, Ron Elksnis and Nikolo Roso trading baskets with Eoghan Rockall, Luka Krajlic and a double from Deondre Jackson saw the teams level at 12-12. . Calixte managed two late scores and three from four from the line and the Warriors had all their three-point shooters in play in the dying moments, but it was too little too late as following their Cup win last week Maree bagged the precious League points by 97-91 in the end.
