18 November 2019
It was certainly a busy week on the court with all our junior teams in action.
Busiest of all were our U16 girls who played 3 games in the space of just over a week. First up for the girls was a Cork league game away to Bantry. The girls received a huge boost with the return of Aine O' Tiarnaigh to the extended panel.The girls started brightly in this game and led 17-10 at the end of the first quarter with good scores by Suzannah Holland and Julia Cunneen. The second quarter was one that the girls need to forget as they conceded 20 points to allow the home team to lead 30-26 at the interval.The girls came out much more focused in the second half as they produced their best all round performance of the season in the third quarter. They outscored Bantry 25-5 in this quarter and were able to coast home for the rest of the game.Top scorers for St Colms in a 59-44 win were Abbie Pigott who was the stand out player on the night on 26 points followed by Kate Barry and Alana Moran.
The girls were next up against UL Huskies in a North Munster league game. The girls controlled this game right from the start and were never headed. They won all 4 quarters with all the squad getting plenty of court time. Sarah Cantillon and Aine O' Tiarnaigh worked very hard in defence, while at the other end of the court Julia Cunneen was in fine form scoring 14 points followed by Suzannah Holland on 10 and Amy Buckley on 6.Final score was a home win for the girls on a 44-23 score line.
Finally, on Sunday the U16 girls travelled to Dromcollogher along with their U10, U12 and U14 clubmates for a series of North Munster league game against Springfield. The U16 games doubled up as a Cork League fixture so there was a lot at stake on the outcome.This was a vey close game throughout, with our girls just edging it by 3 points in the end. A big outside shot by Aoife Brown gave the girls a timely boost on the stroke of half time to go in at the break ahead by a point. The girls quickly put daylight between the two teams early in the third quarter, but a dogged Springfield side kept coming back reducing the deficit time after time. Our girls showed a little bit more experience and held out for the narrow win. Top scorers for the girls were Abbie, Amy and Kate.
Next up were the U14s who played out a tense, low scoring encounter where both defences were very much on top. This game was nip and tuck up to half time with some excellent work under the baskets by Natasha O'Neill at both ends of the court helping the Colms girls to a slender lead. The girls extra experience then started to tell in Q3 and Q4 where strong defensive performances from Gráinne Culbert and Aisling Downey along with some well taken scores by Melissa Do and Anna Zundel saw the girls see out a 10 point victory and remain unbeaten for the season so far.
If the U14 and U16 games were tense affairs the under 12s had no such worries in their game. The girls started this game on fire and quickly opened up a healthy lead with Ava Downey and Laura Buckley scoring well. Springfield came back hard in Q2 but the Colms girls continued to play some excellent basketball throughout to secure a well deserved win with Caoimhe Sweeney particularly impressive throughout.
Finally Sundays entertainment was brought to a close when the U10s from Springfield and St Colms put on a great display for the watching parents. There were impressive skills on display from both teams and it is great to see these players improve week by week. The St Colms squad on the day were Lexi, Taylor, Kate C, Kate O, Jacob, Niamh, Ciarán, Amy, Shane, Eibhne, Grace and Blaithin.
Our U18 girls were also in Cork league action and had a comfortable win over Skibbereen. There was a bit of shadow boxing in the first quarter as our girls held a narrow 14-10 lead at the end of the first quarter. The girls gradually increased the tempo of the game and began to show their dominance on the scoreboard winning all 4 quarters in a workmanlike win on a score line of 70-36.Top scorers for the girls were Sophie Moore 23, Jana Zundel 11 and Abbie Pigott on 8.
This week the U14s travel to Mallow in the Cork League. The U16s are also on the road again with a Cork league game against Skibbereen.The U18s warm up for their National Cup quarter final against DCU Mercy with a North Munster league game at home to UL Huskies.
And best of luck to our senior team who take on Limerick Celtics.
