Maree won bragging rights in the second Galway derby of the season as they were 86-79 victors over Moycullen in Calasanctius on Saturday.
Despite getting off to a strong start through Patrick Lyons and Paul Kelly, Moycullen couldn’t maintain it and faced big difficulties with Maree’s American, Sean Sellers, who finished the game on a whopping 31 points in a superb display.
After the game, Maree head coach Mike Lynch said, “We really had to capitalise on what we work on in training. I feel we lose focus for a certain period of time but we used the bench until we found a fluid motion that saw us out in the end.”
Top scorers Maree: Sean Sellers 31, Niels Bunschoten 19, Paul Freeman 12
