Double congratulations are in order to the ‘pirates of Whitehead’ with both their Senior and Junior sides reaching the final stages in their respective IBA Cup campaigns today. Whitehead overcame a very close encounter with fellow association side Balmoral by a mere 6 shot victory (76-70), while Whitehead ‘B’ cruised pass Larne ‘B’ in a very convincing 91-59 win. Congratulations also to the Banbridge ‘B’ players on thier narrow and again well deserved win over PGL side Dunbarton ‘B’ (88-83) played at Rathfriland BC, which now sets up an intriguing all NIBA club IBA Junior Cup final.
Commiserations but very well done to North Down who were very narrowly defeated 69-76 in their Intermediate Cup semi against Ballycastle in Larne. Commiserations are also extended to Balmoral after that thrilling contest against Whitehead on the Falls green.
We now wish both the Whitehead sides and Banbridge B every success in their respective Finals on Saturday 25 August.
