Mathews 82 – 76 Waterford Vikings
Mathews U18A Boys were involved in another thriller at Mathews Arena today against an excellent Waterford Vikings side. In a hugely entertaining game the standard of shooting from both sides was impressive with Mathews hitting 14 'threes' and Vikings hitting 8 from beyond the arc.
There were some big battles on the boards also with both sides really going after every rebound. It was obvious to all at the game that this one was going to down to the wire.
As the game went down the stretch Vikings made two big outside shots to go 4 up but Mathews held their nerve and responded with three '3s' of their own along with a number of FT's to close out a great game of basketball.
Well done to both sides for putting on such an entertaining contest.
