Tenacious Hazelwood Heroines Put Final in the Basket
Hazelwood First Year Girls’ Basketball team took to the court in UL to battle it out for the title of the South West Girls’ Final winners 2017. They were up against a tough Villiers School Limerick, side.
The girls started off well with great scores and defence and kept this intensity up throughout the match. With 3 minutes left Hazelwood were firmly in front leading 20-11 but Villiers came back to trail by only 3 points with only 20 seconds remaining. A Villiers player threw up a shot from the halfway line but the buzzer had already gone and Hazelwood had clung onto their small lead to win the South West Regional Girls’ Basketball Final
