U16 BWS Girls Claim the Double Congratulations to the BWS U16 girls who claimed the top 4 North East regional title at the weekend to add to their North East league title. The North East competition covers the counties of Monaghan, Cavan, Longford, Meath and Louth. The league which started last October saw the girls playing 15 games in total of which they won 12 making them League winners. Following on from the league the girls travelled to Drogheda last Saturday to play a cup competition. The team were down some key players due to injury however this didn’t stop the squad from securing the Cup title too. In the semi-final the BWS girls beat Dundalk’s Liby Dynamites in an exciting and challenging fast paced game. Running out 3pt winners in the end. The reward for this was a final against East Cavan Eagles. The girls started strong and seemed to have the game in control. However a very determined East Cavan Eagles team, came fighting back which resulted in a very close fourth quarter. With just under 1 minute left Eagles led by 1pt. The Steelers moved the ball around which left Paula free for an open shot which she knocked down giving Steelers the lead with less than 30 secs left in the game. The girls played superb defence to not allow Eagles get a shot off (which was the case throughout the day) and they managed to hold on to claim the top 4 cup. This is a great achievement to the team and to their coaches Delma Mulligan and Kellie McCabe. And nothing short of what the players deserved. As league winners the team will now go further to represent the region at the All Ireland club championships in April competing with the other regions of Ireland e.g. Munster, North West, Galway and the Midlands. Best of luck to the coaches and players from all at Blackwater Steelers U16 Team: Niamh O Connell, Holly Mc Quaid Erica Mc Donald, Katie Deery, Paula Macias, Rachel Callery, Ava Ross , Brid Mc Nally,  Alex Mc Kenna , Aine Ni Dhufaigh   Mollie Birdy, Cathy Mc Kenny, Rachel Lennon , Alex Carlisle, Aine Mc Quaid.
