Bride Rovers U14 Girls
On Saturday afternnon, the under 14 ladies football team lined out at home against Cloyne. This was expected to be a close encounter and so it proved in the first half with just four points dividing the sides at the half time whistle. However, Bride Rovers came out much more focused in the second half and notched up a couple of early goals. From there, they kept the momentum up and won by a substanial margin in the end. Well done to all the players who battled hard for every ball, were strong in defence and showed good passing movement and team work going forward. A special mention to Ruby Hicks who scored five goals and three points!

East Cork League 1st Round, Bride Rovers 2-3 vs Fermoy 1-06 (Draw):
We played our first U12 league game against Fermoy on a glorious Saturday morning in Pairc Na Bride. For the first 10 minutes Bride Rovers were well on top but failed to convert on the score board. Both teams were well matched and it was nip and tuck all the way with Fermoy pulling away slightly towards full time until a goal from our super wing back Ava Barry levelled the game. All players and subs were excellent and played their hearts out. Well done girls.
