Churchill Under 12 Division 4 Shield-Winners

Churchill Ladies u12: On Thursday evening last in the Spa pitch, Churchill took on Castlegregory in the final of the North Kerry League Div 4 Shield Final. Churchill got off to the perfect start when Lily Parker struck for goal for Churchill within the first minute of the game. However, this was quickly cancelled out when Castlegregory struck for three goals in succession. Churchill replied with a goal of their own when some good work by Lily Parker found Nell Moriarty who finished to the net. Some good point scoring by both sides thereafter left the score at half time; Castlegregory 3-03 Churchill 2-04. It was the second half which really came to life & was a half which Churchill dominated. While Churchill had a lot of possession they found it very difficult to break down a resilient Castlegregory defence & were unlucky on 3 occasions for goals when the ball struck the posts. Churchill reduced the deficit to a single point midway during the half but Castlegregory quickly broke out of defence to score their fourth goal of the night to leave 4 points between them. It was then that Churchill really applied the pressure with some excellent work by Lily May O’Gara, Jessica McGibney &  Alicia Cronin while in defence Grace Hamilton & Aoife O’Brien who scored a great point constantly kept the pressure on the Castlegregory defence. With only a few minutes remaining Churchill finally got the goal they deserved when a long range effort from Lily May found it’s way to the net to level matters. Churchill added 2 points in quick succession to leave the final score Churchill 3-08 Castlegregory 4-03. This was a great performance from all the girls who never gave up & battled right to the final whistle. Team: D.Tuite, R. Naughton, L. Gaudino, C. Collins, L. Mason, A, O’Brien, G. Hamilton, J. McGibney, A. Cronin, M. Carmody, L. M. O’Gara, A. Moriarty, L. Parker, N. R. Moriarty, G. O’Dowd, E. Tuite, C. Thubeauville
