CORK U14 GIRLS FOOTBALL

Congratulations to the Cork U14 girls who beat Kerry in the Munster Final last Saturday the 13th of April, 2019.  Well done Ciara, Lily, Abbie and Ava.

U21 LADIES FOOTBALL FINAL

U21 County Championship final is scheduled for Sunday the 28th of April, 2019.

U16 GIRLS FOOTBALL

Our U16’s played Cloyne at home on Friday night.  We started very well with the backs well in control and Sarah Morrison winning every ball in midfield and our forwards were putting over some fine scores. However a slight lap in concentration allowed Cloyne to score two goals just before half time and we were 3 points down. The second half was end to end with both forwards scoring freely. Into the last two minutes of the game and we were one point down and Megan was through on goals and fouled twice with no free resulting in her efforts. This was a very disappointing decision that would have allowed us to draw the game which would have been the fairest result. Final score Cloyne 2-10 Bride Rovers 2-9. Team Cliona, Alice, Naoise, Ava B, Niamh, Caoimhe K, Alanna, Shauna 0-5, Sarah M, Abbey, Ava H 0.1 , Caoimhe B, Kate, Ciara 1-0, Megan 1-1, Sarah Birmingham, Sarah Buckley. A special thanks to the U14’s Ava, and the two Sarah B’s for helping us out on a day we were missing a few.

On Sunday we met RockBan in Rathcormac in terrible conditions. Points were exchanged between both teams in a very close game. The girls were working very hard right throughout and did very well to hold possession with a wet ball. Half Time Bride Rovers 1-4, Rockban 0.4.

With a wind at our back and a few positional changes we began very well and got 1-1 straight after half time. Then Rockban hit a purple patch and were camped in our back line for about 15 minutes, however with a never say die attitude our backs remained resolute and only conceded 1-2.  Winning two of our next kick outs resulted in two goals of a similar nature, with the ball being worked right up to the full forward line resulting in two fabulous goals. From here we won most of the following kick outs and managed to put some distance on the score board.

Team Cliona, Alice, Alanna, Naoise, Niamh, Ava H, Caoimhe K, Shauna 1-3, Sarah M, Abbey 0-1 , Leah H 2-4 Caoimhe B 2-1, Ciara 0-1, Megan 0-1, Molly. This was a great result, well done girls. Our final game is against Mayfield next Saturday (away) @ 4 pm.

U10 GIRLS FOOTBALL:
The girls kicked off their season this weekend with a friendly against local rivals Fermoy and even though it was a friendly both teams were giving 100%.Due to the large number of players from both teams and the chilling bitter wind, it was decided to run 2 matches side by side and boy did Bride Rovers deliver.From the early stages in both matches, Bride Rovers had the upper hand and kicked the ball over the bar at numerous stages to settle the nerves.  From there Bride Rovers took control of both games and even though Fermoy converted a few points themselves it wasn’t enough to sink a hungry determined Bride Rovers team who came away with comfortable wins.We would like to thank all the parents who stood out in the cold and gave their support for both teams, it was really apricated. The first league game is scheduled for the 22nd April away to Agahda and we hope to continue with the same spirit along there.

Cork U 14 Girls Regain Munster “A” Crown

Cork U 14 Ladies Football team regained the Munster U 14 ladies Football “A” championship title on Saturday last when they defeated Kerry in the final.

This game was part of a triple header in Mallow which saw Limerick defeat Waterford in the “C” final and Tipperary defeat Clare by the narrowest margins to take the “B” title.

In very cold and windy conditions it was Cork who settled the better with a goal in the opening minutes and although playing with the cross wind could not pull away from the Kingdom in the first period who kept in touch with the aid of three goals turning at the break all square 2 03 to 3 00.

The Cork management introduced fresh subs at half time and early in the second half and this proved to be the difference as conditions were tough. Cork took some lovely scores in the second period and ran out deserving winners on a score line 3 10 to 4 03

East Cork girls on the panel: May Collins (Aghada), Ciara Morrison, Ava Barry, Abbie Hoare & Lily Murray (Bride Rovers), Jayne Devlin (Cobh), Nora Falvey (Cloyne), Lisa Hartnett (Fermoy), Caoimhe Richmond (Glanmire), Tara Hickey & Grace Rooney (Inch Rovers), Alex Cashman & Jane Savage (Youghal).

Management: Peter O Leary (Inch Rovers), Allie Murphy (Bride Rovers) & Louise Phelan (Youghal)

Cork minors beat Kerry in Fitzgerald`s Stadium

The Cork minor panel, with our own Katie Quirke, Sarah Murphy, Aine Keating and Sally Mc Carthy on board made the journey to the hallowed home of Kerry Football that is Fitzgerald`s stadium in Killarney last Saturday to take on Kerry in round 2 of the round robin Munster championship. On the back of a good win last month against Waterford, this was a must win game for Cork. The Cork girls set about their business from the throw in and Kerry were shell shocked by half time with Cork going in with a substantial lead. More of the same followed in the second half and Cork ran out comfortable winners on a score-line of 4-16 to 0-09.

A feature of the game was Cork`s dominance on their own kickout and also on the Kerry kickout. We scored 2-09 directly from winning Kerry kickouts. Katie Quirke finished the game with 2-06, which included a cracking penalty and Sarah Murphy kept a clean slate with two good saves and winning all but one of her kickouts. It was great to see Aine Keating make her come back from a serious shoulder injury in the second half. Sally Mc Carthy, who was half back against Waterford, suffered an unfortunate injury in a club game recently and missed this game. It is quite possible that a some stage before this journey ends that we could see 4 Bride Rovers players on the Cork minor team. That would be some achievement!! They play Tipperary this coming Sunday at 2pm in Eire Og in Ovens. Come along and support the four girls.

U21 Ladies Footballers Qualify For County Final

Our U21 ladies football team qualified for the county final by beating Naomh Aban at home in Rathcormac last Monday evening. On a great night for football, we started brightly and attacked from the start. Scores, however, were hard to come by and we struggled for a bit before gaining the upper hand and going in with a good lead at half time having played against the wind.

The second half started well but Naomh Aban were dogged and at one stage brought it back to a 2 point lead. We woke up in the last 10 minutes and a couple of good scores eventually saw us run out comfortable winners but we have a few things to work on for the final. At the time of writing this, the final is against Douglas and is provisionally fixed for April 28th. Put that in your diary and come along to support the team. Well done again girls!

U14 GIRLS FOOTBALL

We played our old rivals Fermoy in our fourth league match last Sunday in Fermoy.  The girls dominated the game from the start scoring 2 – 8  to Fermoy 0 -0  at half time.  The second half was the same story  with  every player including the subs putting in a fantastic performance, the final score was Bride Rovers 4 -16 Fermoy 2-2.  Well done girls.  Our next match is at home to Inch on Monday 15th of April, 2019 at 7pm.

Best of luck to Abbie, Lily, Ciara and Ava who are taking part with Cork U14 Team in the Munster A Final against Kerry in Mallow on Saturday 13th.  

U12 GIRLS FOOTBALL

Bride rovers u12 girls went up against a strong Glanworth team last Thursday evening. The first half was a tough encounter with the Glanworth girls using their height advantage well and running at our defence which kept them at bay with great determination.Our forwards worked hard to keep the difference in the scoreline to a minimum throughout the first half In a game of two half the girls came out after half time and took control of the game from the start and with some fine scores and our defence now well on top we ran out winners in the end. Thanks to Glanworth for travelling on the night.

U8 GIRLS : Training continues for U8 Camogie & Football on Monday nights in large astro.

CLOTHES COLLECTION: Bride Rovers Ladies First Friday collection of old clothes, bags and shoes on Friday the 3rd of May, 2019 7.30 p.m. to 8.00 p.m. at Rathcormac Community Centre (garage to rear).  No duvets or pillows please.

Cork Ladies’ Football Inter County Scene April 2019

Well done to all girls from East Cork clubs who have made the various Cork Ladies’ Football panels for 2019 and also to mentors and selectors from East Cork.

All Cork Intercounty teams have been in action over the past few weeks here is a quick look where they stand as they move into the latter rounds of various competitions

Seniors:
After a hard league campaign the seniors have made it to the semi final stage of the Lidl National ladies football league. On Sunday last they played All Ireland champions Dublin in round 7 in what was a repeat of last years All Ireland final and after a very entertaining game in Mallow it was the Lee Side girls that came out on top winning on a score line 2 13 to 2 08. Galway finished top of the league with Cork in second position and this means that Cork will face Dublin again in two weeks time in one semi final and Galway and Donegal will play in the other semi final

Minor Ladies :
Cork had a run away victory in round one of the Munster championship over Waterford at the start of March and last Saturday put on another very impressive display in defeating Kerry in Fitzgerald Stadium winning on a scorline 4 16 to 0-09 they now play Tipperary on Sunday April 14th next in Eire Óg GAA grounds at 2 pm

U 16 Girls:
The U16 girls narrowly defeated Tipperary in round one leaving it very late to take victory. They played much better the following weekend but were defeated by a strong Kerry side in Ballinlough.They must now play Tipperary again on April 20th in the semi final with the winners playing Kerry in the Munster final

U 14 Girls :
This year the format has been changed some what and preliminary rounds in the Munster championship were played in a blitz format with all teams playing each other. This gave a lot more girls an opportunity to play and allowed managers and selectors to view their squads in very competitive games.

Last weekend saw stage two of the U 14 championship with all counties on view in Mallow and after a splendid day with some wonderful football played it was old rivals Cork and Kerry came out on top and will now play each other in the “A” Munster final in Mallow on Saturday next April 13th with a throw in time of 3 pm.

Best of luck to all Cork teams in their quest for silverware in 2019
