Last week we travelled to Duagh on a dirty, rainy Monday evening. It was our first game in division 3 of The North Kerry League. Each and every girl played fantastic football in really bad conditions.Final score Duagh 1-3, Strand Road Girls 2-8.
Our U14 Blues team played Corca Dhuibhne Cubs in a very entertaining final in Healy Park last Wednesday evening.
In the early stages of this game we gave ourselves a lot to do by letting in a few early goals and points. Our direct style of football paid off though with hard work by all the team resulting in us getting 2 great goals followed by points from another two players to bring us back within 3 points after 20 minutes. Corca Dhuibhne had some very strong players down the middle but Lauren Doody who had probably her best game this year was very strong at centre half back ably assisted by Jennifer Murphy in midfield. It was a very high scoring game from beginning to end .
At half time we were 4 points down but could have been worse if it wasn’t for the work of our forwards. It was a game we were never ahead in despite having far more ball in the second half. Corca Dhuibhne had just 3 wides in the whole game which is outstanding for a team at that level . With just 5 minutes to go there were just 2 points in it but we just couldn’t peg it back. Every single player played her heart out but Lauren Doody was head and shoulders above every player on the field that night. The other side were just that bit better than us throughout and simply made better use of the ball when they had it and deservedly held on at the finish.
We are a club building and our juvenile teams are getting better and better . They always say you learn more when you lose a game and we will be all the better for the games to come this year. Well done to all the team, their mentors and the supporters on the night. Final score Kerins O’Rahilly’s Blues 6-07 , Corca Dhuibhne 9-03.
We are home to Castlegregory in The North Kerry League on Tuesday September 18th. Throw in at 6.30p.m. in Strand Road. Best of luck to the girls and their mentors Declan and Tricia.
