Templeogue's Matthew Harper powered his side to a 74-65 triumph over St Malachy's of Belfast in the U-19 'A' Boys Subway Schools Cup final at the National Basketball Arena.

Harper, whose 22 points earned him MVP, was supported by team-mates Iarla McKeon, captain Sam and Jack Walsh.

St Malachy's were impressive across the floor too, with CJ Fulton one of the brightest stars on the court for the Belfast side.

The Dubliners started best ending the first quarter with a 11-8 lead before St Malachy's Niall Hurson, Niall McGinnity and Matthew Mulholl returned fire, holding out for a slim 34-32 lead at the half.

Templeogue, who trailed 51-50 at the start of the final quarter, regained control when Jack Walsh found Harper under the boards allowing the Dubliners take a 60-64 lead before they secured glory with more scores.

Elsewhere, Katie Williamson led Coláiste Pobail Setanta home to a 60-49 victory in the U-19 'C' Girls final over Carrick-on-Shannon Community School.
