Tigers U16 Girls Play-Off Champions

25 MAR | BY JOHN KENNEDY

The U16 Girls got an unexpected opportunity to take on Phoenix in the Play-Off finals and we should thank Phoenix for the chance to take them on for the fourth time this season, the chance to reclaim their playoff trophy from last year and also to take the League and Playoff Double

The 1st period was very tight, ending tied at 10-10 with both eams running into foul trouble and Naoishe clocking up 3 personal fouls as well. The Tigers needs to calm down and focus on their game.
The 2nd period was equally tight, with neither team able to open up a gap, with the Tigers marginally ahead 24-23.
The 3rd period saw Phoenix get ahead 33-31, so there was one big push required from the Tigers going into the 4th period and what a period it was.
With 2:36 left, the teams were tied at 37-37 and with Tigers back in it, with 39.7, Tigers ahead by 1, 41-40, with 11.3 left Tigers pulled head by 5 and took the Playoff Trophy.

Congratulation to coach Clare Callaghan Hegarty who has guided the team fantastically this year, gave every player a chance to shine during the playoff final day and calmed a few frustrations during a very tense game.
