St.Vincent’s Secondary School 2nd Year A Girls claim 3rd All Ireland Honour for 2010-2011.

Loreto Beaufort and Mercy Mounthawk met in the first semi-final of the 2nd Year A Girls with the Mounthawk girls hoping to build on their 1st Year girls success. Both sides had periods of domination in this game however it took a period of overtime to divide the sides. A dramatic end to normal time as both sides exchanged free throws in the dying minutes. Loreto Beaufort emerged as victors on this occasion, however there is no doubt this Mounthawk side will challenge for honours in the future. The second semi-final saw St. Vincent’s Cork meet Presentation Secondary School Tralee. The Cork side were vying for their third All Ireland title for the 2010-2011 season. Both teams got off to a slow start with the score at half time 9-6 in favour of Vincent’s. A match winning performance from Edel Thornton who scored 20 points ensured the Cork outfit would march on another step closer to a fantastic season. As Loreto Beaufort and St.Vincents Cork took the floor for the 2nd Year A Girls All Ireland Final tensions were high. Both sides with great support took to the floor to give their supporters something to shout about. Outstanding displays from Edel Thornton and Olivia Dupuy each with 17 points saw Vincent’s take a ten point lead at the break. Beaufort fought hard to get in sight of the Cork side. However, the Cork side turned on the heat again and ran out convincing winners 46-30.

Brunell Division One Runners Up
Apr 19, 2011, 10:52 am

Liffey Celtic's claimed the Basketball Ireland Women’s Division One title following a 73-46 victory over Brunell.

‘MVP’ Anna Pupin led the charge with an impressive point haul, but Celtics’ victory owed more to a superb diligence and team ethic than any one performer.

Catriona White struck the games first points from outside to give Celtics a three point lead. Sharon O’Neill responded immediately for Brunell, followed by Danielle O’Leary from the line, as the Cork side took the lead. There was little to separate both sides in the opening quarter, Brunell taking a narrow 13-12 lead into the second.

Maud Anne Foley had Celtics level early in the second, with a huge three for her side. Celtics began to assert some authority halfway through, thanks to some industrious work from Aine O’Connor and Anna Pupin. Brunnell were certainly still in contention, but now struggling to penetrate the Celtics defence. Kathleen Kelliher provided her side with a much needed three pointer, to bring Brunell back within five. The Cork side were doggedly hanging in against their opponents, the question for coach Kieran O Leary, whether or not his charges could maintain the level of exertion they were now expending. It appeared not as the first half drew to a close, Catriona White going to the line to hand Celtics a twelve point lead at half time. (40-28)

Brunnell returned for the second half with a renewed sense of purpose, Danielle O’Leary hitting an unlikely three pointer from way outside. Still it was Celtics who were more clinical inside, with Aine O’Connor and Catriona White continuing to cause problems. Karen Mealey hit three for Celtics, who were managing to keep the gap at thirteen despite Brunell’s best efforts. It was looking increasingly likely that it was going to be Celtics day, as the third quarter drew to a close, Brunell beginning to look slightly ragged in their attempts to find a way back. 54-38 to Celtics with one quarter remaining.

The final quarter was somewhat of a procession for Celtics, who pulled away in the final stages, sealing a resounding victory by 73 points to 46. It was a tough day out for Brunell, who had the added blow of losing Alison Kearney to what looked like a serious injury.
