Report

In a three-way race for the Women’s Irish Basketball Association National League Division 2 title, Drimnagh Dynamos, from Dublin, finished on a 10-4 record, a game ahead of Snowcream Wexford and Brunell. In the playoff for second place, Wexford prevailed, before taking the Final 62-44 against Drimnagh, with former county footballer, Eddie McMahon putting them in the history books as only the third team to ever to win the title in their debut year at the National League level, after Wildcats (Waterford) and Tralee. Trish Nolan (18 Pts) and Ann Forrestal O’Gorman (17 Pts) top scored for the women from the southeast, as they had a brilliant third quarter to pull away from the Dubliners, and win the Final, and promotion to Division 1.
