Under 16 and Under 19 Boys
Our under 16 and 19 boys basketball teams had a tough day against an exceptionally strong St Aidan’s CBS. The lads are very young and are developing so every game is a stepping stone towards improvement. Great effort was displayed by all especially those that gave their all and supported eachother right until the end. Heads up guys and we will go again.
Under 19 Girls
Our under 19 girls basketball team began their season with a fine performance in the East Leinster league. They were victorious over Our Lady’s Terenure on a score of 50-28. This game was a lot closer and more intense than the scoreline suggests. Our girls started strong and some nice full court moves involving rose Amran and Alicia saw the girls take an 8-0 lead. New addition Julia Bermajo fitted in seamlessly with the team and she started to take control after our lady’s led by Irish under 18 Point Guard Lauren Darcy started to gain a foothold. Kerrigan came to the fore with some important baskets before the break to see our girls lead 27-14. Bermajo and Jadia added to the score in the third quarter as Darcy and the girls from Our Lady’s began to tire. A strong final quarter saw the girls hold on for an impressive 50-28 victory. Scores: Alicia Jadia 17, Julia Bermajo 9, Amran Maxamad 8, Rose Mesquita 8 and Samantha Kerrigan 8.
