Luke Thompson leads Templeogue Azzurri to U20 Men’s Cup

The final game of the 2013 National Cup Weekend started off slow, with neither team able to get into any sort of offensive rhythm early on. However, it soon picked up with both team’s captains leading the attack. Templeogue’s Luke Thompson led all scorers with 26-points while Ciaran Roe, captain of the Killester side, who took the game into his own hands in the third quarter, finished with 20-points. Killester’s Mikey Deegan supported Roe’s quest for National Cup glory with 9-points while Beolach Morrison tallied 12-points for Templeogue.
