Limerick Celtics win incredible victory over Carlow IT
Limerick Celtics continued where they left off last week in Waterford with another great win at home to Carlow IT in St. Munchin’s on Saturday night. 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.
Celtics continued to dominate and despite a late run from Carlow. Celtics finished the game with a win on a 78 – 72 scoreline. Emmet Browne, Dylan O’Dwyer, Alvaro Martinez and Cathal Moane finished the game with some excellent defence and fast flowing offence to close out a great opening game win for the young Limerick side.
Top Scorers Turrell Morris who scored 25 points, Fabio Hernandez, who scored 20 points and Jordan Hehir who scored 13 points.
