Our U12 panel qualified with an unbeaten record topping their League table in the U12 C League and found themselves togging out against Barryroe on Sunday 17th July in the County Quarter Finals. Carrigtwohill were lucky to win the toss and played in their home ground with great support from parents and fans! It turned out to be an exciting match under blue skies and the girls, in hot conditions, played their hearts out.
The first half was very competitive with great skills shown from both sides. There was plenty of play for the half hour and we managed to inch ahead by half time with a 2:2 to 1:2 score line in our favour. The second half started with quick scores from the home side and from then on Carrigtwohill managed to stay ahead for the rest of the match. They delighted the sideline supporters with brilliant displays of skill and team work from the back, centres and forwards. Everyone of the 20 strong panel got a chance to play and there were some stand out performances. Our U12 girls won a deserved victory against a very good Barryroe side who fought hard until the end. The visiting team gave us plenty to work for and kept our defenders very busy.
The final scoreline was 6:5 – 3:2 in favour of Carrigtwohill and our girls are very excited to progress to the Semi-finals vs Sliabh Rua in Ballincollig GAA @ 12 noon. Roll on Saturday the 23rd!
Many thanks to Lorraine & Co for the lovely spread of teas & cakes after the match and huge appreciation goes out to all the parents who helped out. Thank you Catherine Desmond for the delicious trays of homemade cakes.
Barryroe were very gracious in defeat and we wanted to make sure they were well fed after having to travel over an hour from their home town to Carrigtwohill. They are a great group of girls and we wish them all the best in their future matches.
