Ballincollig 1-09 Cloughduv 0-04. We got our league campaign back on
track last Sunday with a very pleasing win over Cloughduv. Pleasing
for a number of reasons. We were short a number of regulars but those
who came in played very well and other more established players were
required to play in unfamiliar positions and equally did themselves
proud. A special welcome to Mia Cronin who came up from the Junior
ranks and played in her first senior game and did extremely well. Kate
Green also came on at wing back and slotted in very nicely while Ciara
Riordan started her first match in the half back line and was superb.
Jess Hennigan also has to be delighted for playing midfield and
acquitting herself quite well against an illustrious opponent. To be
fair, everyone who played from Aisleen in goal to Becky at corner
forward gave it their all and were rewarded with the result. It was a
real treat to see the smiles and to hear the laughter after the game
as the girls were warming down. More again please next week girls as
we take on Inniscarra in Ballyanley (Saturday 7pm provisional). Team:
A Sheehan, A Kiely, K O'Donoghue, A Coughlan, C Irish, S Buckley, C
Riordan, L Dorgan, J Hennigan (0-2), A Lovett, E Casey, D Cronin
(0-2), S O'Sullivan (1-0), P Buttimer (0-5), R O'Callaghan, Subs used
M Cronin, K Green. Congratulations to Aisleen Sheehan and Adèle Kiely
who were named captain and vice-captain for the year. Hopefully it
will be a long and successful one.
