Basketball NI entered a ‘League Select’ into the National Area-Boards Senior Men’s Intermediate Championship

Basketball NI entered a ‘League Select’ into the National Area-Boards Senior Men’s Intermediate Championship competition last weekend with high hopes to prove that BNI has the best local league in the country; the team had representatives from 6 clubs the BNI Premier League with local interest provided by the inclusion of Kilkeel Knights pair Darius Surginas and Arturas Kisielius. The team beat Cork 83 to 52, Kilkenny 77 to 56, Dublin 29 to 22, and in the Final Kerry 71 to 47 for their third National Area-Boards Intermediate Championship title in five years.

 

In the Wingfoot Premier League Kilkeel Knights had Derry’s North Star as visitors to Dunavil on Saturday afternoon in a winner takes all qualifier match as the season’s end play-offs take shape. The Knights won 109 points to 83 points and remain well placed to hold onto the Premier League title they won twelve months ago. North Star led at the end of the First Quarter 29 to 17 but the Knights gradually took control and outscored their visitors 48 to 43 by half time and stretched that advantage to 19 points going into the Final Quarter before finishing 26 points to the good when the hooter sounded. Kilkeel now play Andersonstown Tigers in the League Quarter-Final.
