We played Corca Dhuibhne in Killeen on Thursday night in the North Kerry U12 Plate Final. Conditions were ideal and we got off to a good start with Siun and Grainne exchanging points. Aoife Hartnett was unlucky not to squeeze in a goal after some great work from Aisling and Jessie. Corca Dhuibhne scored 2.02 against the run of play. Sorcha scored another point before half time but it was Katie who was our saviour as she made two great saves to keep us in the game. We composed ourselves at half-time and Grainne got us going with a goal followed quickly with another goal from Sorcha after Chloe and Eve made a great turn-over. Aoife Barrett made a run up the field after Priya and Maya won the ball on our halfback line. Corca replied back with a goal but it was their last score of the game as defenders Elsie Peig, Grace, Roisin Cantwell, Caoimhe and Aoife Moynihan held tough in defence and with Aoife Barrett , Siun and Roisin O Mahony in front of them, we were able to keep them at bay. Ava McGough came into the forwards and immediately set up Grainne for another goal. We got more points from Sorcha, Siun, Roisin O’Mahony and Grainne with a huge amount of team play from Ava Rice, Eve, Cliona and Sarah Slattery. Final score in the game was 3.11 to 3.02. It was a great display of teamwork and they deserved it for the work that they have put in into training. Well done Girls.
