Regionalsdouble for Teresian

Teresian Donnybrook completed the double at the Oblate Hall, Inchicore, wins over OLM Drimnagh and Castleknock CC respectively.

Their Under-19B match with Drimnagh saw them win 46-30, with Rachel Leavy top scoring on 26 points.

Drimnagh were without key player Billy Jean Byrne, but replacing her in that position was Eva Swann, who made a very good return with eleven points.

Donnybrook's second game in the U-19B decider saw them up against Castleknock CC and there was nothing to separate the two teams at the break, 22-22.

But Castleknock, who were to lose their captain in the second quarter, were to trail by three points at the end of the third quarter, with scores from Clodagh O'Halloran and Ali McGrath seeing the Donnybrook girls up 35-32

And with McGrath in explosive form (she hit 14 points from play after the turnaround), Teresian were to emerge victorious on a 64-42 scoreline.

Mount Temple, meanwhile, recorded a 38-33 win over Rockford Manor in the Under-16B decider, with Molly Power their key player.

Irish underage star Aisling McCann featured prominently for Muckross College as they overcame a big Kings Hospital team, with Michaela Mulligan in defence, in their 56-33 win.

The game of the day saw Holy Faith capture the Under-16A title with a 61-58 win over old rivals Colaiste Iosagain.

Iosagain exploded out the blocks to open up a 9-3 lead following baskets from Billie Kate Huggard and Liz NicDomhnaill.

But with Ciara Curran sweeping up a lot of loose ball for Holy Faith, the Northsiders were to edge in front 18-12 at the end of the first quarter.

Ruth Fennell was very effective from the free throw line, converting four successive free throws and heading into final quarter, Holy Faith were still heading their opponents.

Iosagain however showed great heart in the final quarter to land a number of fine baskets. But Holy Faith were able to wind the clock down with a series of frees from Saoirse Power-Cassidy.
