Back to back wins after Limerick Celtics victory over Fr Matthews

Limerick Celtics go into this weekends class on the back of two great wins last weekend.

Celtics won their local derby against UL Eagles on a  scoreline of 73 to 72 and had top scorers in Turrell Morris 28, Fabio Herandez 15 and Jordan Hehir 14.

Celtics followed this up on Sunday with another super home win to continue their unbeaten start to the new season. Celtics and Fr Mathews gave the home Celtics supporters a highly exciting and entertaining clash with the Limerick team taking the valuable league points on a scoreline of 77 to 71. Top scorers were Turrell Morris 42, Jordan Hehir 13 and Fabio Hernandez 11.

Last week Limerick Celtics had another great win at home to Carlow IT in St. Munchin’s. Carlow started the game strongly and led 10 -1 early in the first quarter. Fabio Hernandez, Jordan Hehir and Shane O’Connell then got the Limerick side going and with 8 unanswered points suddenly the momentum had shifted right back to the Celtics side. The new USA signing Turrell Morris then started to up his game and despite some good runs from the experienced Carlow side, the local Celtics side entered the halftime break with a 37 to 32 lead. Carlow once again started the third quarter with high intensity but some great scores from Tommy Walsh, Cian O’Reilly, Fabio Hernandez and Jordan Hehir kept the Limerick’s side’s lead intact.

The Limerick Celtics basketball club was founded in 2007 in LIT and has since grown into an incredible sporting club winning many victories across the country.
