The NIBA U25 squad, after valiant endeavours, just failed to lift the Junior U25 Inter-Association trophy in Dublin. Although, both NIBA & NIPGBL finished on 15 points apiece, the Shot Average Rule unfortunately dropped them into the runners-up position. NIPGBL 2.01, NIBA 1.45.
Nonetheless, the players should be proud of their excellent individual and rink performances throughout, losing by just 3 shots to NIPBA in the Friday evening opener, then securing a keenly contested but well earned 12 shot victory over NIPGBL on Saturday morning and finally gaining those maximum points against BLI that afternoon, to tie the series on points.
Congratulations to all the players on a excellent series, so proud, so close!
