U16B Championship (09/09/14)

A fantastic win for our under 16 girls on Tuesday night against An Rinn which means we are now in the U 16 county final for the 2nd year in a row.

The girls battled hard throughout in a very competitive match. Two early goals settled the team and with the defence standing firm, we led at the break by 2-2 to 0-2. Another quick goal put us in a commanding position but as expected, An Rinn started to fight back which put great pressure on our mid-field and backs. We reacted well as a unit with tenacious tackling, hooking and blocking. An Rinn started to tire and momentum swung back our way in the last 10 minutes. The girls kept battling hard right to the end and deserved their victory.

Final score 4-4 to 2-4
