Junior Ladies Football League
Midleton v Glanworth
On Thursday evening our Junior Girls travelled to Castletownroche to take on Glanworth in Round 3 of Division 2A of the Cork County football League. We had 16 girls at our disposal and all were needed. On a lovely afternoon for football we started spritely and from the throw in attacked the Glanworth goal. Before Glanworth could settle we had the ball in their net. For the first 10 mins, we piled on the pressure and added a further 2 points. Mid way through the half we lost our shape and Glanworth tore into the game, and in that period scored 1:7 to our breakaway 1 point.
Score at half time, Midleton 1:3 Glanworth 1:7
After a bit of reflection and advice from James we took to the field again. ‘Fantastic’ is the word that sums up the performance in the second half. The backs were brilliant from Kate Mary in goal through the full backs out to the half backs. They attacked the Glanworth forwards in packs and defended as if their lives depended on it. They didn’t allow the Glanworth girls the same time and freedom on the ball and we started to turn them over. Our centre field also started to get on top of proceedings in the middle of the pitch and as we started to supply our forwards with good ball we found ourselves back in the game. With 10 mins left we drew level and gaining momentum. Against the run of play the Glanworth girls broke and after a scramble in the goal mouth, a penalty was awarded. The resulting penalty goal was all that separated us with time almost up. The girls ploughed forward looking for that equalizing goal. As we worked the ball up the field, it was looking like we were on for it, until Ciara was hauled to the ground in 14 yards from their goal. The resulting free, just blasted over the crossbar.
