Super Cup Final U16 Girls
DTBC 55 - Blaze 48
Our Under 16 Girls retained the Super Cup Title they won last year with a close game with Letterkenny Blaze. Having already won the league with a superb last game win against Blaze in Letterkenny they now travelled to Sligo to play this final. DTBC got off to a good start with baskets from Courtney Harron 4, Orla Carbery 4 and Sophie Carr 4 to win the first quarter 13-9. Blaze kept the pressure on and they pushed Donegal all the way but with a 10 point lead coming into half time we rested our Star players Carr & Carbery which in turn let Blaze pull back that lead but DTBC managed to win the quarter to ensure a tight 5 point lead at half time. Captain Orla had a big 2nd quarter with 6 for her side. Only 2points would sepreate the sides in the second half with DTBC's good start being the difference at the end. As Coach i have to say how proud i am of this group who have put in a great effort over the season and to win a title at u16 is a huge achievement for the Club. With Blaze again out supporting us with great noise for their team our girls battled bravely and gave it their all which is all any coach can ask for. Carr and Carbery are 2 of the best players in the region with Orla getting MVP for the Final this time. Well done Orla while she was well backed up by the improving Catherine Campbell who had a big say in this game along with Nadine Mc Geoghan who was also excellent. Orla Mc Gonagle showed her steady improvement and played great throughout the game and indeed the league. The pace of Courtney and Aoife at the top is another one of the teams assets and they no doubt will be a big part of the team at the Aicc's. So well done girls and best of Luck in Dublin on the 14th & 15th TEAM; Nadine Mc Geoghan 7, Orla Mc Gonagle 3, Aoibhe Timoney, Kirsty Harron, Sophie Carr 16, Aoife Mackle 4, Courtney Harron 4, Ava Maxwell, Catherine Campbell 2, Lucy Clinton, Orla Carbery (c) 19, Natasha Prendiville, Ciara Cox, Aisling Murphy.
