The Girls Senior Basketball team have played four matches over October and November. The first fixture was against St Colman’s Community School in Midleton. The score ended 44-20 to Midleton with Hope Onah (2 points), Jenny Feddern (2 points), Megan Urbonaite (6 points) and Favour Nduwuba (10 points) all scoring. The girls learned a lot from this experience with more physicality needed, better work ethic and more effective use of tactics all areas for improvement.
The next fixture for the Girls was an away fixture to Mitchelstown to play their U17 and U19 team. St Peter’s defeated their U17 team 22-18 playing some attacking basketball and passing the ball around to teammates well. Against the U19 team, St Peter’s were competitive for the first half but ran out of steam in the 2nd half and lost 28-12. St Peter’s showed substantial improvements against Mitchelstown with the defensive aspects of their game greatly improved.
On the 9th of November, the Senior Girls team made the trip to North Presentation Secondary School to play their final league match. The match was close in scoreline in the first half despite St Peters dominating possession. St Peter’s managed to push ahead in the 2nd half and the scoreline finished 28-12 to St Peter’s. The scorers were Tobi Okwo (4 points), Ella Ambrose (4 points), Megan Urbonaite (6 points) and Jenny Feddern (12 points).
