Junior v Aghada
Because our Junior team won the Junior A County League last year and the rearranging of the Adult divisions we have been promoted to a Div2 Senior team. We started our season yesterday with a very tough match against Aghada in very inclement weather and a heavy. Our quality showed from the start and we got a few points on board before Aghada hit a purple patch. A goal just befor half time brought us back into the game and there was the bare minimum between the teams. The teamwork and the ball work in the second half was amazing and the sheer determination of these girls did us all proud. The whole team and the 5 subs that came on were amazing and in a dingdong 30 mins we eventually beat a class Aghada outfit with a score of 2-13 to 5-2. Well done to all
U16 v Youghal
U16 football match report. Our first match in the u16 East cork football league was played against Youghal on a heavy pitch in GCC yesterday. Despite the conditions underfoot, the standard of football was excellent. We led 1:7-0:2 @ half time. Youghal played good football, but were unlucky with their finishing. We got our second goal midway through the second half, and withstood a brief rally from Youghal in the last few minutes to win well – with a final score of 2:12 to 1:4.
