Coming from 2 out of 2 wins for our U16 panel, this match was always going to be a tougher challenge against St. Fanahan’s. We traveled to Mitchelstown with reduced numbers but our U14s stepped up to make sure we started with 15 on the pitch. The first half was tough and the opposition left us in no doubt that the girls had to fight every inch of the way.
And that they did. Half time saw us 1:1 to 2:3 down but the girls kept up the pressure and a few quick scores at the start of the 2nd half settled things to get us level on a score of 2:3 to 2:3 with 20 minutes to go. After that there was nothing in it with Carrigtwohill going a score ahead twice. But St Fanahan’s kept us to a draw right to the closing minute.
A great battle and an exciting match for us on the sidelines. Huge respect to each and every girl on the pitch – they all fought their hearts out and kept going to the end. Many thanks to our parents who as usual showed great support. And fair play to St Fanahans for a great Challenge!
A bit of a break now in the League schedule to allow for the Junior Cert. Our next match is against Watergrasshill at the end of June, with training continuing every Saturday at the usual 12:30-1:30pm.
Scores by Aisling (1:3), Ciara H (1:0), Holly (1:0), Kerrie (0:1).
