U18 Women fall to Elks in Season Opener

19 OCT 2017 | BY JOHN KENNEDY

The U18 Tigers women took on an experienced Ulster Elk team in the opening game of the U18 season. The Elks controlled the first period and raced to a 20-4 lead after the first period, with a combination of fast breaks and accurate passing. Coach Clare re-organised the zoning defence for the second period and the Tigers responded with a terrific period winning it 11-4 to trail the Elks 26-15 at the end of the period. Going into the third, the Elks raised their game to respond to the Tigers to lead 49-21 at the end of the third. Into the fourth, a very tight period with the Tigers fighting back and taking the period 16-15, but the Elks ran out winners 64-37. A terrific effort from the young Tigers during their first game at this level.
