NI Knights charge to league title

NI Knights picked up their second piece of silverware this season, when they claimed the IWA Wheelchair Basketball title at the weekend, with a comprehensive 71-32 victory over Dublin side Ballybrack Bulls. This gave the Knights an impressive record of 17 wins & only 1 defeat during the league season and proudly sit on top of the pile.

The League features 10 teams, from Galway, Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Shannonside, Dundalk, Kilkenny & Clonaslee, so there's a lot of travelling in the campaign, but it all will have seemed worth it with this League title in the bag.

On Sat 27th May, the NI Knights travel to Abbotstown, Dublin, to try and clinch the domestic treble (the Knights won the National Cup earlier in the season, defeating Cork in the final), when the IWA Cup competition comes to a finale.  NI Knights will be up against Limerick Scorpions in the semi-final, with Dublin team Killester facing Clonaslee in the other semi-final.
