Borrisokane CC 1st and 2nd Vs Gallen CS

Borrisokane CC 1st  and 2nd  year girl’s basketball teams played Gallen CS at home on Monday 30th January. First years were up first and struggled with form early on against a very strong Gallen side. Borrisokane struggled with their physicality and despite an improved performance in the second half lost this game to a better team.
Team- Kelly Watson, Ciara Courtney, Sinead Haugh, Molly Ryan, Amy Clarke, Eimear Fogarty, Anna Harding, Robyn Fitzgerald, Rosie Staunton, Hannah Austin

Second years played next and started well going in with a slight lead after the first quarter. They extended this lead in the second quarter and went in with an 8 point lead at half time. Scores were hard to come by in the third quarter and Borris lost their way a little and let Gallen back into the game. It was all to play for in the last quarter and it seemed a draw was inevitable when Borris scored a last second basket on the buzzer to come out as 34-32 winners in what was a very entertaining game.

Team- Emily Gould, Sinead ODwyer, Aoife OSullivan, Niamh Ryan, Orla Hogan, Laura Leenane, Amy Bergin, Caoimhe Ryan, Laura O Meara, Aine Slattery, Laura Hayes.
