Super home win for LIT Celtics in National Basketball League.

Limerick Men’s National league basketbal team LIT Celtics had a very impressive 93 – 82 win against Dublin Lions last Satureday night in LIT Sportshub.

A super team performance from start to finish with Matt St Armour finishing as the game top scorer on 41 points, John Galvin 15 and Krystian Burchardt 14. A packed LIT Sportshub witnessed a highly entertaining game with some super shooting from both sides on the night.

It was basket for basket until midway through the 2nd quarter when the Limerick sides intense defense began to pay dividends as the LIT Celtics side took a 10 point lead. Celtics increase this lead and closed out the quarter with some good scores to finish the half with a twenty one point lead.

The third quarter was again a basket for basket affair but the Dublin side were beginning to put a comeback together and that’s exactly what they did reducing the LIT Celtics side’s lead to 6 points with 2 minutes remaining.

Some great scores from Matt St Armour, Emmet Brown and Tommy Walsh regained the momentum of the Limerick side as they closed out the game for an impressive 93 – 82 win.

Celtics now have three weeks off until they return home for what should be another cracker of a game on Sunday February 18th in LIT Sportshub @ 3pm.
