SKIBBEREEN Community School completed the league and cup double with a comprehensive win over De La Salle Churchtown. 

They didn’t have it all their own way as after an opening quarter that they dominated, De La Salle came back into the game just after half time.

MVP Eividas Andrekius had nine points in the opening quarter and DLS had no answer to his ability to get in the lane or close out on this three-point attempts, it was 5-21 at the end of the first. 

A much better second quarter for De La Salle saw Alejandro Rodriguez get to the rim and finish as well show his range on the way to seven points and he was ably assisted by Joshua Esguerra and Miguel Hurtado as they cut the deficit to just seven points at the half, 19-26. 

Rodriguez picked up his fourth and fifth fouls midway through the third and Skibbereen powered on afterwards. 

Andrekius added four threes to his tally and with Stevie Redmond and Colm Harrington seemly able to score at will, it was 29-49 going into the fourth. Andrekius knocked down a couple more threes on his way to 28 points.
