Nine ahead at half-time (36-27), Team Garvey’s St. Mary’s had to hold off IT Carlow who closed the gap to two in the third quarter.

Speaking after the game, Team Garvey’s St. Mary’s head coach Liam Culloty appreciated getting another win under their belt.
“We are absolutely thrilled to get our second win of the season. IT Carlow came back at us very strong in the 2nd half but we finished the final two minutes really well. We made some smart decisions on offence and defence, and that helped us get over the line. Wins in the MissQuote.ie Super League are really hard to come by, especially without an American, so I am really proud of all the girls and their effort today” praised Culloty.
