new venture and we are looking forward to the challenge.
The panel is made of 5 girls from the Under 16, and 11/12 girls at
minor level..... as Jess and Sinead train with the Senior Panel and
the Under 16 girls train with their panel it is difficult to get time
together, however, despite this we have worked very hard and the girls
are a great group.
Our first match was against Brian Dillons and despite a great
performance we went down by the narrowest of margins a point and with
the final whistle being blown for full time when we were on the edge
of the square who knows????
The new format meant a fast paced and skilled match was played by both
teams with very little between them...., in the first half we
dominated and should probably have been further ahead but missed frees
and scoring opportunities meant we only led by 1-4 to 1gl.... all the
girls were working hard in all areas of the pitch and the new format
suited some players more than others.............
The second half Brian Dillons dominated and took the lead and despite
our best efforts we fell short, Ciara Riordan who was having her best
game to date but got a nasty hit to the knee and had to retire and
ended up with 5 stitches but no doubt after her little rest she will
be back flying again........ the game was fast and furious and both
teams committed to getting a result.......
Team Aisling Hennigan, Ciara O Riordan, Meabh McManaman, Grace
McDonnell, Laura Barry (Captain), Fiona O Brien, Jess Hennigan and
Mairead O Dwyer, forwards Shannen O Brien, Sarah McCoy, Chloe
Hennigan, Sinead O Sullivan and Mia Cronin...
We introduced Lauren Cooper into the forward line and despite her
young age she did very well and her first touch set up our second
goal..... we also introduced Judy Murphy... We are lucky to have a
substitute goalie at this age in Leanne Doyle and we have new comer
Julia Dineen whom we hope to introduce during the course of the league
as both girls have been working hard at training.
Overall all girls did well and the new fast format suited some players
better than others but we now know what it is all about so we will
work hard again and will keep pushing hard to improve. Well done to
all the girls you did us proud.
