Our U12 girls got back on their winning trail last Tuesday evening at our Ballyrickard pitch with a win over a very competitive Abbeydorney side. Abbeydorney got off to a good start putting 2 points on the board. We then responded with a pt. by Aoibhín MacCarthy.
Abbeydorney responded with a long ball in which ended in the net. Kelly Fitzgerald made a solo run and kicked a great goal to the roof of the net to leave the score 2-1 to 1-2. We now lead and held that lead throughout the game. We added another pt. from Kelly before half time.
Into the second half we lead by 3 pts. Nathali Mulumba picked up a breaking ball , made her way through the defence and scored a pt.
Abbeydorney responded with a goal reducing the lead to a single pt. Aoibhín MacCarthy won a ball, created space to get a shot at goals which finished in the net. Soon after Aoibhín added another pt.
Abbeydorney added 2 reducing the lead to 3 pts. In the final few minutes play went from end to end with the fear of a late goal from Abbeydorney always a possibility , however Sophie Hassett kicked our final pt. to put us 4 pts. up.
Kerins O’Rahillys 3-5
We wish a speedy recovery to the Abbeydorney player who fractured her arm during the game.
