North Pres girls reach schools' All-Ireland semi-finals

North Pres girls reach schools' All-Ireland semi-finals


BRUNELL'S Alison Kearney, Gemma Dowling and Grace Kelleher will aim to reach an All-Ireland schools' final on Saturday when they line out for North Pres in the semi-finals in Chirst the King.

Last weekend, the trio helped their school get to the semis showdown having qualified from the quarter-finals in Carlow. Winning two out of their three games - including Mark Ingle's Mercy Coolock team by a solitary point - the girls set up a chance to reach the play-off stages in the U16 finals.

Grace Kelleher gave a stand-out performance on the day, bagging a whopping
26 points in one game alone.

On Saturday, they face hosts Christ the King at 9.30am, before coming up against Kerry's Coláiste na Sceilge at 12.30pm, and finally Methodist SS at 3.30pm.

With coach Rachael Vanderwal and Terry Dowling at the helm, the girls are in good hands to reach the finals.

So, if you're around on Saturday, head out to Christ the King in Turner's Cross to support the girls.


Tough trip awaits Brunell against Liffey Celtics

TOUGH TRIP TO CAPITAL FOR BRUNELL

Sunday, February 6

Brunell V Liffey Celtics

Leixlip, 4pm

 

This Sunday Brunell's division one team will take on Liffey Celtics in Leixlip.

The Dublin side are joint top of the league table with Meteors, with just one loss this season.

Kieran O'Leary's squad will be hoping to put their shock loss to UL at home two weeks ago behind them, with the outcome of Sunday's game crucial to Brunell's chances of making the league playoffs.

Elsewhere, Meteors are at home to UL, and Brunell will be hoping the Shannonsiders will create another upset to boost their playoff chances, while Galway are at home to Thurles on Saturday.


Megan leads St Vincent's to All-Ireland Glory
Feb 1, 2011, 12:46 pm

MEGAN LEADS ST VINCEN'TS TO ALL-IRELAND GLORY

ST Vincent’s of Cork secured the U16 girls National cup title last week, with an impressive 61-41 win over Calasanctius of Galway. It was a superb performance by Vincent’s, who were led by their skipper, Brunell's Megan O'Leary.

Initially, there was nothing to distinguish between the two teams in the opening quarter, as both teams came out flying. It is not unusual for teams to be overwhelmed by the occasion in situations like this, but both teams displayed impressive focus and determination from the outset.

  O’Leary secured the score of the first quarter, with a nonchalant three from outside. The game was neck and neck at the end of the quarter with Calasanctius leading 13-12.

St Vincent’s began the second quarter in fine style, with Olivia Dupuy and O’Leary instrumental as the Cork side raced into a seven point lead. Calasanctius were struggling to keep apace, against a Vincent’s side that had found another couple of gears. Edel Thornton was a frequent thorn in the Galway side’s defence, but Sinead Considine hit an important three pointer to keep her side in sight of Vincent’s. Olivia Dupuy showed her class as the first half drew to a close with a superb three pointer, to give her side a 32-21 lead at the interval.


The second half began with Vincent’s continuing to assert their authority. Dupuy and Thornton were continuing a rampage that was completely overwhelming the Calasanctius defence. They stretched the lead to twenty points towards the end of the third. Vincent’s should be commended for the touch of class they bring to the basketball court. There play merges a diligent and focused defence, with a cohesive and fluent attack. The final quarter of this game was somewhat a foregone conclusion, and Vincent’s maintained their lead with a final score of 61-41.

Vincent’s seamless transitional play frequently outfoxed Calasanctius and their accuracy when shooting from distance was the major difference between the teams. Coach Dommie Mullins will be hugely proud of his side, although the coach himself deserves special praise for the manner in which his team performed. Megan O’Leary secured the games’ MVP award after a huge performance which saw her secure twenty two points.

Sunday, January 23

Brunell V UL

Parochial Hall, 2.45pm

 

This Sunday Brunell's division one team will take on National Cup finalists UL at Parochial Hall at 2.45pm.

The sides first met in the opening game of the season, coming out winners on a scoreline 57-49.

Elsewhere, Thurles play Meteors and Castleisland take on Galway.
