Coolmine Girls Clinch Semi-Final Place in Schools’ League
It has been a very good season for the Coolmine Community School First Year Girls Basketball team, who clinched a place in the Semi-Final of the Schools League in a closely contested game against Pobalscoil Neasáin on 29th March in Baldoyle. Coolmine met Coláiste Ghlór Na Mara in Balbriggan in the Semi-Final on 1st April.
From the end of the first quarter the teams were within a few baskets of each other and it was evident that this would be a closely contested game. Both teams had won their Semi- final games by comfortable margins. The first quarter of the game was close with the teams matching each other basket for basket.
Coláiste Ghlór Na Mara gained ground in the second quarter and had a significant lead going into the third quarter of the game. Coolmine CS began to turn the tide again in the third and fourth quarters, but Coláiste Ghlór Na Mara managed to hold onto their lead at the end of the game.
The Coolmine First Year Girls’ Team will be back next season well prepared for the league.
