10 FEBRUARY 2020

Our U18 girls qualified for the final of the North Munster Cup with a superb performance against UL Huskies. The girls were dealt a blow before the game with both Amy Higgins and Jana Zundel crying off due to illness.

The rest of the panel shrugged off the loss of the two girls with a dominant performance right from the off. UL were much improved from the last time the two sides met, but our girls are playing with tremendous confidence of late. Their up tempo performance and constant rotation had the UL defence in all sorts of bother, while their fast break proved a potent weapon. The girls surged into a 16-4 lead after only 4 minutes and dominated all aspects of the game thereafter. There were strong defensive performances by Isabelle Meaney, Jody O' Halloran and Izzy Murphy who worked tirelessly. Buki had by far her best performance of the season and capped a fine individual performance by scoring 9 points.

Sophie, Bronagh and Abbie were superb in offence and scored 62 points between them in the 80-46 win.

 Our U16 girls faced Springfield in a vital North Munster League game to determine who would qualify for the AICCs in April. The girls had escaped with the narrowest of wins away, so a tight contest was anticipated. Springfield started the brighter and were the better team. However, our girls put in a dogged performance to keep the scores tied at 13 all at the end of the first quarter. Springfield continued to be the better side and opened up a 5 point lead. However a buzzer beating "3" pointer by Abbie reduced the deficit to 2 points 25-27. This game was decided in the third quarter. Our girls put in a huge defensive effort to restrict Springfield to a single basket. The girls scored 11 points themselves to lead 36- 29 going into the final quarter. The girls kept distance between themselves and Springfield for most of the final quarter. A nervy final few minutes allowed Springfield back to within 2, but the girls held out for the vital win on a score line of 46-44.

 

Abbie had an immense game both offensively and defensively and drove her team mates to victory. Aine, Kate and Nofeesat scored some important baskets at crucial times. Amy after getting into early foul trouble, did great work on our own defensive boards and was well supported by Alana, Sarah and Susannah.

 

The under 14's headed to Cork on Saturday for the Cup semi final. Storm Ciara and a puncture couldn't stop the team getting to Cork. Gráinne had been stranded half way to Cork with a puncture but arrived just in time for tip off giving the squad a big morale boost.

The girls started brightly and opened up an early lead with Nofeesat and Ciara making the early scores in the first quarter. The girls never looked back from this good start.

The team continued their good scoring in the second quarter with Grace, Emma and Treasa leading the way with strong performances. The second half saw them work on their plays and put another win together with the girls now progressing to the final of the cup on the weekend of the 7/8th March. Well done to Carrigaline for a sporting match. Scores were spread throughout the team with Nofeesat finishing on 15 points followed by Ciara on 12 and Grace, Maxim and Treasa on 6 points each. Thanks to the parents who drove in atrocious conditions and for their support.

Storm Ciara took its toll on our Sunday games fixtures with our U10's games postponed and the U12, U14 and U16 games pushed back by two hours.

The U14's faced a dogged Springfield team with a never say die attitude. The girls were quick out of the blocks but a few silly turnovers allowed Springfield easy scores. Injury to Gráinne meant that she could not play any further part in the game after the first quarter with the girls holding a 6-point lead at the end of this period. The girls couldn't find their rhythm in the second quarter and only scored 2 points which meant that they were pegged back to a slender lead of 2 points at half time. Maxim rebounded well throughout this quarter but in another blow to the team on the day illness ruled her out of the second half of the game. However this team have built up a real fighting spirt over the course of the season and the girls found their feet again in the Q3 quarter opening up a 9 point lead by the end of the quarter. The girls missed some easy scoring chances but their passing, defense and running of the court was exceptional. They upped their defense for the remainder of the game and two excellent long range efforts from Treasa in the final minute helped the team run out winners by 15 points. Top scorer was Nofeesat with an excellent 28 point haul followed by Treasa on 6 points and Ciara on 4 points. Well done to the squad on two good performances over the weekend.

 Next up for the girls is their NM Cup semi final on Tuesday evening against Newport followed by the U16s who take on UL Huskies in the Cork Championship.

 

The U12s have a busy weekend meeting Limerick Celtics on Friday evening in CBS and then travelling to Parochial Hall on Saturday morning for a Cork Championship clash with Cobh. Best of luck to all the girls.
