U16 girls basketball team had a great win over Coláiste Oiriall last Thursday and another great win over Virginia College on Tuesday. The girls have had a very good season to date winning 5 out of 6 games in the league and have now qualified for regional semi finals.
U19 girls had a great win over Coláiste Oiriall last Thursday.The girls put in a great effort all season. Well done to all involved
Tuesday 24th, our U16s and U19s played Coláiste na HInse here on our own court.
U16s were up first and showed they were a different class from the outset, taking an early 15:2 lead.They maintained a comprehensive advantage for the entire game, allowing all players to get a run out. The boys eventually finished up 48:17 victorious.
U19s then took to the floor against a very different opposition. From the outset, it was obvious that the opposing U19 team were a very strong outfit. The game twoed and froed throughout and with 30 seconds to go our lads were down by 2. Some exceptional team play led to captain Neil Kilbane's shining moment, equilizing with only three seconds left on the clock sending the game into overtime.
It was in overtime that the Ballymahon men showed their true class outplaying the opposition in every facet of the game. After the additional time, Ballymahon finished the Victors of this exceptional game 62:55.
Well done to both of our teams and their coaches, Seán Walsh and Dave Dempsey.
