Midleton Ladies Football U 14‘s Crowned County Champions
Midleton 6-03 Keelnameela 2-05
The U-14 ”C” Ladies football County final was held on Thursday evening against Keelnameela in what was one of the most exciting games of football played this year. It was an excellent performance by both teams from the time of the first ball play to the final whistle.
With each score added to the board by Midleton, Keelnameela came back into attack. A super goal by Clodagh Finn put Midleton 5 points ahead at half time but this was to be short lived with an early goal from the opposition in the second half. The Midleton girls didn’t let it go. They challenged every ball, and at times it was difficult to make out what position Ali Smith was playing in such as was her speed and determination both in attack and defence. Midleton came back strong and so did the wind ,and two early rebounds off the upright from Lucy Kenneally , and a wide goal made us think the second half may not go our way .
Leah Hogan aiding Amy O Neill in defence put it up to the girls from Keelnameela and aided Midleton on the way to victory. Mischa Daly Harkin didn’t leave too many balls pass her and made great efforts to clear every ball assisted by the back line
The final score does not reflect the effort of the forward line to get past the opposition. At the end of the game each girl played a part in what was a great win
With the enthusiasm of the supporters on the sideline and the determination of the team it was a game which won’t be soon forgotten with a score line of .6-03 to 2-05
