The Ballincollig Credit Union sponsored floodlit tournament comes to
an end this weekend. Firstly on Friday night at 7.30pm Glen Rovers
take on Ballinhassig in the "Plate" final. This will be a re-run of
the Senior B final from last year which Ballinhassig won and promises
to be a very close run affair. Secondly the Final takes place on
Sunday evening at 7pm where Inniscarra bid to win back the trophy and
Ballygarvan try to win the trophy for the first time. These will be 2
close and hard fought matches and will be a fitting end to the
tournament. Best of luck to all involved. We played our first league
match of 2012 last Saturday night when we travelled to Killeagh to
take on the locals. The match was close right to the very end and
unfortunately we lost out by 2 points. We didn't get out of the blocks
as quickly as hoped for and were 4 points down at half time. A much
more intense 2nd half followed and were very unlucky to come away
without even a draw. Of particular note were the very fine
performances from the younger members of the squad with Ciara making
her senior league debut and how well she played. Also, Jess was
unerring from frees. Welcome also to Louise Weste, Nicola Young and
Emer Nolan who helped out as numbers were a little tight. Finally, a
huge welcome for her first match to Kate Green who came on with 15
minutes to go and again made a very impressive start to her senior
career. Well done to all for the fine performance but we are under
pressure to win the remainder of the games if we are to qualify for
the knock out stages of the league.
