A very competitive enjoyable game took place on Saturday night in Donegal Town with the locals overcoming Sligo All Stars.
DTBC 82 Sligo All Stars 74
Sligo got off to a fast start thanks to American Cullen Donovan who was a big threat all night. However the duo of Paul McHugh and Dillon Muldoon showed the high standard of basketball present in Donegal with tough score after score to keep Donegal in front.
Sligo All Stars struggled in the second quarter with DTBC’s full court forcing them into numerous turnovers leading to fast break points for Dylan Kennedy. Patrick Reid was a big presence inside with relentless effort fighting for every rebound, this defence effort led to DTBC leading 37-25 at the half with Sligo only scoring 9 points in the 2nd.
The 3rd quarter was a battle of the centres with Jason Duignan causing serious issues for Sligo, scoring in the post or getting fouled which resulted in him converting his free throws. D O’Boyle the big man for Sligo was putting in work at the other end keeping Sligo in the game.
The 4th quarter was a physical intense battle with both teams getting into foul trouble. However Dillon Muldoon and Paul McHugh made big shots to ensure DTBC came out victorious. This was the clubs 6th win in a row staying top of the league.
DTBC are having their annual table quiz at 9:30pm this Friday night in Doms Pier 1. We hope all supporters can come along and join the coaches, parents and players for a enjoyable night.
