Midleton v St Nicks
Midleton Minor girls had a comprehensive win over St Nicks in the East Cork Minor League played away in the Glen on Tuesday night. We travelled with 13 players as we were missing the rest of the panel due to injuries, holidays and tied up with Cork Camogie U16 team. St Nicks had 17 but in a sporting fashion matched our 13. This game started off as a very one sided affair as the Midleton Girls stormed into the game from the starting whistle and were 2 goals to the good inside 5 minutes. To balance things up St Nicks put on their full 15 and they started to play good football. This was a game that Midleton were always in control, but the introduction of the extra girls made them work that bit harder. This was a great fun game and both teams got something out of it. Both teams were wasteful at times in front of the goal but as the game progressed improved, St Nicks very much so in the second half. The encouraging thing about this game was the girls off the shoulder running and linked up play resulting in being able to move the ball from the full back line right through up to the forwards. The Midleton girls were outstanding, playing great football
We ended up with 20 points on the scoreboard, a record for this team. Well done girls great result.
