for the Paudi O’Connor Cup

First Semi Final. Killester 87 Waterford Wildcats 77

Ieva Bagdanaviciene 10

The Neptune Stadium was rocking on Saturday with our ORANGE Army in fine voice as Mark Grennell’s girls booked their place in the final with a magnificent team performance throughout.

The girls in Orange got off to a brilliant start stretching into a 7 point lead. It was level coming up to the end of the quarter when Chyna put us 23-21 ahead.
The second quarter was close again with Wildcats taking a 46-42 lead.
The third quarter was literally Basket for Basket with Killester leading 61-60 going into the final quarter.
Despite having Chanell and Chyna in foul trouble the team performed superbly with the two Americans, Ieva , Mimi Clarke, Ella McCloskey and Jenna Howe all contributing as did the entire bence at the end.
What a game! What a performance! Now let’s get out all the orange gear and have it ready for two weeks time!
