DCU completed a double victory in the Intervarsities final this afternoon as, just a few short hours after the college’s Men’s team was crowned Men’s B champions, their women’s team stormed home to glory in the Women’s A final, running out eight point winners of IT Carlow.

Sarah Fairbanks, Aoife Maguire and Megan Connolly were the stand-out players in a solid DCU performance, with Fairbanks bagging 31 points for her side.

There were heroes at the other end of the court too though, with IT Carlow launching a superb comeback in the third quarter and star guard, Jamiyah Bethune netting a whopping 32 points to keep her side in contention. A nervy fourth quarter saw the score remain tight, but Mark Ingle’s charges had that extra edge to see them home to the title.

NBCC Men’s B Intervarsities final

Trinity College

IT Tallaght: 66

DCU: 72


A THIRD QUARTER run by IT Tallaght saw them drive back from a 29-40 point half time deficit in the Men’s B Intervarsities final to tee up a thrilling finale against DCU.

Superb performances from Omar Arcilla and the hugely impressive Aidan Dunne saw Tallaght throw everything in their repertoire at Mark Grennell’s charges, who had to dig deep to eek out victory in the end.

DCU’s Paddy Sullivan was fouled out of the game at the start of the third and proved to be a huge loss as DCU looked to regroup fast and with a Tallaght attacking onslaught on full throttle, it was Andrew McGeever and Conor Gilligan who led the DCU charge back, grabbing some crucial scores in the dying stages of the game to edge Tallaght by six in the end.

IT TALLAGHT: Omar Arcilla, Oisin Dowling, Aidan Dunne, Isaiah Lopez, Matthew Williams, Lukas Merliunas, Christian Anonuevo, Tautrydas Navickas, Tomasz Swiatowy, Ben Arulogun.

NBCC Women’s B Intervarsities final

Sunday, April 9th

Trinity College

Trinity College Dublin: 66

Cork IT: 64


TRINITY COLLEGE DUBLIN stormed home to a two-point victory over Cork IT in the NBCC Women’s B Intervarsities final this morning.

The hosts were pushed all the way by a talented Cork side, but managed to bag the two-point cushion with ten seconds to go and held on to that lead for a memorable victory.

Kelsey Ellis and Jess Porter were the shining stars for the home team bagging 43 points between them and proving to be a tricky combination for the Cork defence to keep at bay.

Cork meanwhile had stars in the shape of Madison Ward and Lauren Falvey, with Amy Waters also proving crucial under the boards for them to see them come back from behind to tie the game midway through the third quarter. It was neck-in-neck from that moment until the final buzzer, but time just ran out for Cork IT as their final shot – with three seconds to go -  didn’t drop for them and Trinity were crowned champions.

TRINITY COLLEGE DUBLIN: Laura Fortune, Kelsey Ellis, Aoife Tiernan, Danielle Kilduff, Aoife O’Halloran, Aoife Gillespie, Jess Tobin, Rebecca Keating, Jess Porter, Lizzie McGonnell, Giuila Zoeller.
