Seniors beat Our Lady’s Newry 22-14

Wed 13th November BA senior A team travelled to Newry to play Our Lady’s team in their first league match of the season.

In the a first quarter, BA got off to a good start with strong attack and defence from all players. With strong balls down the court and into the circle from our centre court players, Lynsey Orr (C) and Hannah Houston (WA) This meant our shooters, Katie Cartmill (GA) and Nadia Radcliffe (GS) could lead them to steady lead of 7-4 at the end of this quarter.

In the second quarter, Our Ladys came back with a strong defence which lead to them stealing a centre pass, resulting in a slightly closer score line of 11-9 in this quarter, BA still in the lead despite a few unforced errors which were quickly fixed going into the next quarter with some great steals from Annie Robinson (GD).

In the third quarter, BA put a lot of pressure on Our Lady’s in the defensive circle creating turnovers for BA. With great interceptions from Aoife Mcnally (WD) and Annabelle Kelly (GK) and great linking play from Katie Baxter (WA) this meant BA were able to take a more comfortable lead again of 16-11.

The last quarter was evidently BAs strongest quarter, the girls came out determined and the result of the match is a reflection of this. With a final score of 22-14 to BA. Our Lady’s proved to be a strong side that challenged the girls both defensively and in attack but BA worked consistently as a team and took their opportunities in the circle.

Well done to Nadia Radcliffe (GS) who was voted player of the match!

Senior B loose to a strong CHS in first round of Bowl 16-27

Senior Bs lose to Cookstown HS in first round of the NI Bowl

The girls began with a promising start, despite this being their first time playing as a team in weeks. With the help from some strong defensive play from Annie and Zara, we were able to work the ball up the court to Nadia who got three shots leaving the first quarter at 3-3. The second quarter unfortunately was slightly weaker as the girls struggled to get the ball past Cookstown’s defence, so we only managed to secure two more baskets, whereas Cookstown scored 7, leaving the half time score at 10-5. At half time some changes were made, bringing Evie on as GS and moving Emily to WD. With the work of Nadia and Evie’s shooting and Alex and Katie working to feed the ball into the circle, the girls managed to get 5 shots in this quarter, but Cookstown unfortunately making 6, leaving the third quarter score at 16-10. Despite best efforts to break through Cookstown’s strong defence, the girls managed 4 more shots whereas Cookstown secured 11 more baskets leaving the final score at 27-16.

Well done to all the girls and especially to Annie Robinson (GK) who got player of the match! 👏👏

Senior As loose to Friends A in Shield Match 21-16

BA Senior A team travelled to Lisburn Racquets on Wed 6th Nov to play Friends School Lisburn Senior A team in their first match of the Shield.
In the first quarter both teams started well, indicating it would be a very close match. The ball was worked well round the circle into Katie Cartmill GA and Gemma Hassan GS who shot well and secured the points for Banbridge. The score at the end of the first quarter was 5-6.

Friends came out stronger in the second quarter, causing Banbridge to lose the flow of the game. Unforced errors creeped in resulting in Friends taking every opportunity for goal. Aoife McNally WD worked very well defensively getting tips and interceptions on the ball, but Banbridge struggled to successfully carry the ball up the court for goal. At the end of the second quarter the score was 7-15.

In the third quarter Banbridge changed their game with short sharp passes up the court, holding their own. They slowed their game down and were back on track as both teams drew 4 all in that quarter. Annabelle Kelly GK and Zara Ginniff GD defended their circle, putting very good pressure on the Friends side and in turn, creating turnovers and forcing their passes off the backline. The third quarter ended 11-19.

In the final quarter, Banbridge came out their strongest and showed great determination. Nadia Radcliffe came on as WA and worked well with the attackers to feed the circle to Gemma Hassan who secured the goals for Banbridge. Nadia and Katie got out for the centre passes and showed nice linking play to Lynsey Orr C who worked consistently carrying the ball from one end of the court to the other. Unfortunately the girls couldn’t bring it back from the Friends team and the final score was 16-21.

Player of the match was Aoife McNally WD.
