U16 GIRLS PLAY-OFF CHAMPIONS

26 MAR 2017 | BY JOHN KENNEDY

The girls race to an early 10-4 lead in the first period, but ran into foul trouble with Alex picking up 4 fouls, but the girls seen out the first period with a 16-7 lead. Into the second, Tigers led 20-11 with 4:54 left the clock and girls pressed home their team advantage to stretch their lead to 12 and take the second period 28-16. Into the third, with both teams working hard, the Tigers maintained their advantage and with 3:18 remaining in the third, Tigers lead 32-19 and further stretched their lead in the remaining time to end the third period 42-23 ahead. Into the fourth, the girls maintained their concentration and with 6:28 remaining held a 44-27 lead over Towers. With both teams getting into foul trouble in the fourth, Tigers stretched their lead to 20 points, 55-35 with 1:30 left and took the victory 57-37. A fantastic effort from all these girls over the season and just reward for all their hard work and committment. A special thanks to coach Clare who has guided the girls superbly well over the season to second place in the league and todays play-off win. Next stop – All Ireland at the end of April.
