This format of games give the players the opportunity to put the skills they learn in training into a game type situation.Everyone put in a great deal of effort and it was a very enjoyable and beneficial day for all. On Saturday our U12 boys visited Sligo All Stars BC where they too took part in a blitz which is the format of competition this year at that age group. Elsewhere Storm Desmond got in the way of our U16 boys league team travelling to Anderstown Tigers and also Omagh Thunder coming to Letterkenny to play our u14 boys league team.Our U18 girls have a disappointing loss in overtime to Ballyshannon BC having led the charge throughout the game in normal time. However, a combination of injury and foul trouble led to their demise. However disappointing the result the game was a great one to watch with the Blaze girls working really well together. Aisling Nee and Serena Regan were strong for Blaze but really solid performances also came from Niamh Farrell, Isla Kelly and Sarah Boyle.Next weekend teams will be away to Queens BC Belfast on Saturday and we host Sligo All Stars on Sunday in Loreto gym, games tipping off at 10.30 with U14 girls.
