The season opened today with the now traditional game between Dundalk Ravens U18 men's and the DKIT squad. Both teams started off well with Ravens leading at the half by 9. Good play from Kevin Lacey Mateusz Karpinski and Mathieu Rouart kept DKIT in with a shout.
With good work in the third quarter DKIT finished ahead by 9 points going into the final quarter.
Some sloppy play by DKIT and good team work from the Ravens brought the lead down to 3 with a minute to go. The ravens got a fast break and made it a one point game with 30 seconds to go. DKIT failed to make the most of their offence and Ravens were again off on a fast break with seconds going down. Just as the buzzer went Irish international Aaron Lawless made a two point jump shot.
The victory by one point was sealed. This year the bragging rights go to the Dundalk Ravens.
