Ballyshannon 88ers 27 DTBC 68
Our Girls started their league with a trip to neighbours Ballyshannon 88ers last weekend and came with a great performance and a great win. Orla Mc Gonagle got the game underway on the scoreboard when she was fouled and went to the line scoring from the free throw line. Sophie Carr would show her class throughout the game as she added 10 points in the first. Nadine Mc Geoghan 1pt starting at point guard controlled the game for the visitors with numerous assists and stretching the 88ers all the time with Captain Orla Carbery 3pts dominating the boards and the energetic Aoife Mackle 2pts also showing well to lead 21-4 after the first.
The second quarter was all Sophie Carr for us as she scored all 14 points in a tighter quarter which was 14 each with 2 delightful 3 pointers the highlight. Alicia Clyne x 2 and Caoimhe Keown both hit fine 3 point scores for their team in the quarter which left it 18-35 to DTBC at half time.
88ers where by now finding their form and would again push the bigger DTBC side as Clyne continued to knock down some fantastic scores but DTBC spread their scorers in the third winning it 12-9 with baskets from Aoife 4pts, Nadine 2pts, Orla Carbery 2pts and Orla Mc 2pts and Sophie 2pts to ease away from the home side.cy College
