Our Under 10 Girls at Portlaoise Blitz January 2016

Under 13 Girls. Limerick Celtics Tournament Runners Up August 2015

Leinster Community Games Finalists June 2015

Leinster Silver medals today for both girls and boys u13 sides. Both sides had comprehensive semi final wins before facing into the Finals. The girls were up against a hugely impressive Liffey Celtics side who were too strong for our girls on the day. It was still a huge achievement to win 3 games in Leinster and bring home just our 2nd ever Leinster girls medals. Our 5 boys gave a tremendous display of heart and grit to come from 6 points down against Drimnagh Oblates of Dublin to lead by 4 with 35 seconds left. With 7 left they still led by 2 but credit to the Dublin lads the engineered winning scores against the physically shattered Tullamore lads. The club could not be prouder of these 2 teams today and it was a wonderful way to bring the curtain down on the season. ROLL ON NEXT SEASON and remember keep practicing and improving over the summer.

U16 Girls

Our u16 girls today on a super win over a gallant Clonaslee team. Coaches Paul and John will be delighted with the determined performance of the Tullamore girls. The coaches certainly had them fired up from the beginning where they jumped out an early 11 points to 3 first quarter lead. The girls were hit with a body blow at the end of the first with an injury to Jennifer Glavin which forced her out of the rest of the game. Tullamore though regrouped with Rebecca Poole Aoife Maher and Suzie Azeez providing quality minutes to the team effort. Fast break lay-ups from Roisin O Brien and Niamh Lydon were the highlights of this quarter along with some soild zone defence which stifled the Clonaslee basket drives. Credit though to Clonaslee as they steadily worked their way back into the game over the next 2 quarters. A tidy jump shot form Katie Mangan and a strong rebound finish from Lydia Coyne steadied the Tullamore nerves at the end of the third. Tullamore still found themselves 4 points down entering the last 2 and a half minutes, a situation whch could have been worse except for the incredible defensive display of Katie Guinan who came up with numerous turnovers to compliment her attacking drives. Coach Paul called a time out at this stage and switched the team tactics to an all out full court press, This move yielded dividends with 2 baskets and a made free throw within a minute giving Tullamore the lead late in the game. Guard Niamh McGann showed her class at this stage with some decisive plays which breathed confidence back into the team. Tullamore lived on their nerves in the last minute while Clonaslee spurned five opportunities from the charity stripe to level the game. Fittingly Niam McGann had the last say as she got to the free throw line after some calm and collected play to seal the victory 30-28. It was a display of grit and determination from the Girls and Coaches which all at @tullamorebc are very proud of. MVP: Niamh McGann.

The Tullamore Girls U16 team had a very challenging first home game of the season against Kestrels, the Portarlington Basketball Club. The Portarlington team started very strongly clocking up 16 points without reply in the first quarter. A good score by Niamh Lydon put Tullamore’s first points on the board. The Tullamore girls had to work very hard to reduce Kestrels scoring rate. The team’s defensive commitment and work rate started to pay dividends and Kestrels weren’t to repeat the high scoring first quarter. The Portarlington team were very strong in all aspects of the game. Tullamore offensively were made to work very hard for every scoring opportunity. Roisin O’Brien and Niamh McGann got themselves on the scoreboard for Tullamore and a number of very good scoring efforts just didn’t ‘find net’ on the day. At the close, a good win for a very capable Kestrels team and a strong, committed effort by the Tullamore girls, despite the disappointing opening quarter.
