First Year girls reach Cork Basketball final
The first year girls under the guidance of coach Carol Ann O’Driscoll have reached the Cork final. Having won their pool, they went on to defeat Carraignabhear in the Quarter Finals. They defeated a strong side form St. Al’s Carrigtwohill today in the semi finals.
The Crosshaven side went into an early lead through the scoring prowess of Rachel Stack. The Carrigtwohill girls rallied and there were three points between the teams at half time, Coláiste Muire enjoying a slender lead. Great scores from Katy Mulcahy and tenacious defence from Aoibhe O’Sullivan and Holly Fegan saw the girls go into a lead of 10 points, a lead which they maintained until the end. Emily Russel put in a strong performance while Gabriel Corcoran showed great vision in setting up several scores. Alana de Courcey, Kate O’Brien, Clara Neaves and Shona Mulcahy and Sophie McCarthy all contributed to an excellent result.
First Year Basketball teams shine
The first year girls, coached by Ms. O’Driscoll and her fourth year team, played against Bantry on Thursday the 2nd of February 2017.
From the very beginning of the match Crosshaven dominated the game. They started off strongly with 21 points in the first quarter with no reply from Bantry. The second quarter was equally as impressive and the scoring continued bringing Crosshaven to a lead of 31-0. Bantry put themselves on the scoreboard in the closing few minutes of the second quarter. The second quarter ended with a “Buzzer beater at the end of the second quarter by Emily Russell from downtown”- Pat O’Flynn. The heavy scoring continued for the final two quarters with Crosshaven racking up an impressive score of 47-06. It was an excellent display from everybody involved and we are all really proud of our first year girls. This was two wins in a row as the girls started their campaign with a win against Scoil Mhuire.
The first year boys put in an excellent performance on Wednesday, beating Glanmire Community school. Great performances by Zack Murphy and Josh McCarthy.
Basketball – Mixed fortunes in Senior semi-finals
The Boys’ senior basketball team have reached the Cork “B” schools’ final following a keenly contested semi-final against Kinsale Community school. Conor Mason and Jai Evelyn starred as the Crosshaven side held on in spite of an intense comeback by the Kinsale side in the final quarter. They will play Glanmire Community school in the Cork final on Thursday 15th December.
The Senior girls’s were very unlucky in their semi against St. Aloysius, Carraigtwohill. Despite excellent performances by Molly Murphy, Ciara O’Brien and Cliona Wrenne, Coláiste Muire went down by a three-point margin.
