Junior Ladies v Dohneys Junior League

A tough opening encounter against Dohneys in the Cork Junior League Round 1. A panel of 18 made the long road trip earlier today in horrendous conditions to the West Cork town of Dunmanway. On a very heavy pitch we found the going extremely tough playing into a gale force wind. Our first game of the season our touch was away off and we allowed Dohneys too much room in that opening half. Tried as the girls did we just couldn’t contain them. We did make a few worthwhile ventures into the oppositions half and one such move resulted in a fine point from the boot of Molly Beausang. Kate Mary in goal was the busiest player on the pitch and only for her the score would have been very painful at the break. 4:5 down at the break was a good result considering the conditions.

In the second half we started brightly and took the game to Dohneys. We played much better in the second half and outscored our opposition by 1:3 to 1 goal. The goal was a screamer from Claire O’Brien, with our full back Lucy also getting in on the scoring with a fine point. Abby Quirke finished off a fine passage of off the shoulder passing with a point which she started and ably assisted by Niamh O’Farrell who also scored a fine point. The wind dying off also didn’t do us any favours. But a much better performance in the second half.
