Our U12 girls winning streak of 5 wins in a row came to an end last Tuesday evening in Castleisland when we lost on a scoreline of 3-10 to 2-8.
We started the game with leg injuries by Kelly Fitzgerald and Aoibhin MacCarthy.
We battled well in the first half with pts from Sophie Hassett, Kelly Fitzgerald and great goals from Amy Behan and Aoibhin MacCarthy to lead by 2 pts at halftime on a scoreline of 2-4 to 1-5.
We tired in the second half as some of our players had school games earlier in the day.
However we scored 4 pts in this half with 1 pt from Lauren Doody and 3 pointed frees from Sophie Hassett .
We were in contention of victory when with 5 mins to go we were only 1pt down . Then Sophie Hassett hit a great shot low and to the right which hit the post and went wide. This was a game changer as Castleisland went down soon after and scored a goal followed by a pt. which was the final score. On the night we were beaten by a fresher and hungrier team.
We play a Strong Abbeydorney team on Tuesday next at 7p.m. in our pitch at Ballyrickard. All support is welcome!

Last Tuesday we headed out to Ballyduff to play Beale / Ballyduff in The Co. League. The pitch was quiet and we were warming up with our jerseys hanging in the dressing room but to find out that the fixture had been changed to Beale. Apologies to parents as we weren’t notified of the change. Final score 3-4 to 2-7. Well done to the girls, Martin, Tricia and Kevin.
