SMGS Girls Basketball qualify for the All Ireland Final

A massive congratulations to the 2nd year girls basketball team who won the All Ireland Quarter Final and Semi final in Oblate Hall in Dublin today.

The girls played a blinder against a strong Kerry team in the quarter final. Coming into the fourth quarter Blarney was ahead by a fraction. In the last ten seconds Rathmore scored a 3 pointer putting our girls under pressure with a score of 45-46 to Rathmore. Blarney called a time out with 2 seconds to go to sort out our game plan and with 0.3 seconds left in the match Michelle Ugwah scored a basket resulting in a 1 point lead for Blarney to win the match. (47-46)

The semi final was another exciting match against Castleisland CC. Blarney played their best and took the lead for all 4 quarters. Despite our fouls, we managed to secure a win with a final score of 39-34.

We are all very proud of our girls and wish them the best of luck in the final in the NBA on Monday 29th of April! We can do it girls! πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ€
