Connolly Park was vibrant with Strand Road colours as we had 2 teams participate in the U10 Girls Go Games last Thursday evening.
Thanks to Austin Stacks for hosting and we’re looking forward to the next round. The girls enjoyed the Fun games.
On Wednesday evening last in Ballyrickard our U12 girls added the division 3 North Kerry Plate title to the recent County League title.
This was another fantastic performance against Duagh in tricky damp conditions we lined out without Farah, Aoibhne , Ciara and Sophie.
Duagh got off to a perfect start with a goal but that didn’t upset our girls who responded quickly with a point from Córa and a goal from Kelly Fitzgerald. A ding dong battle continued throughout the first half . Further goals from Sara , Aoibheann and Fiadh plus points from Kelly and Aoibheann gave us a half time lead of 4-03 to 2-03.
In the second half Duagh came at us strongly but Millie in goals stood up to all their attempts. Our backs Mia, Donna and Alivia defended with great heart. Our half back line of Saoirse, Taylor Kate and Leila were excellent in both defensive and attacking duties. Sara and Kelly at midfield began to dominate with Kelly in brilliant form scoring from frees also.
In the half forward line Fiadh added a beautiful goal. Aoibheann tacked on a point , then added a fantastic goal after an excellent pass from the hard working Aoife. In the full forward line Megan, Córa and Taylor Kate worked their socks off to help secure another victory. Kelly Hayes and Caragh contributed very well to this great win.
Our captain on the night Sara accepted the plate and gave a resounding thanks to our large support.
Another delightful victory for our U12s and their proud, hard working coaches Michelle, Pádraig and Rory.
Final score: KOR 5-11, Duagh 4-05
