U10 Girls Football
Last Thursday our u10s travelled to Killumney to play the home team of EirOg in 2 games.
The home team had previously won the Danniel Forde blitz so we were guaranteed a tough game and they did not disappoint.
The home team started the better with our girls finding it difficult to get into the game and so we went in at half time down by 3 points.
The 2nd half was a different story in both games with Rovers girls realising that they had to work hard and so they did with both teams putting in a great effort. With our defence standing strong and holding the home team scoreless for the 2nd half and our midfield and forwards moving the ball with immense speed and accuracy we were given some lovely scores and we ran out winners in the end.
Thanks to EirOg for the challenge and to both Bride Rovers teams for putting in a great effort.
U16 Ladies Football
We played Bishopstown on Thursday the 30th in Bishopstown under lights. The city side hit the ground running and were 2-2 to no score up after 8 minutes. It took us about 15 minutes to settle but with some very strong work from the backs and midfield we began to get back into the game. We were behind 1-3 to 4-2 at half time. With a real emphasis on work rate and support play at half time, our girls started to become more involved in the game and get a grip with some very fast girls from Bishopstown. Some fine work and scores from the forwards brought the girls within 5 points of Bishopstown with about 10 minutes remaining. However we were never able to close the gap and the final score was Bride Rovers 6-7 to Bishopstown 8-8. Even though we were disappointed with the result it has to be said the girls were exceptional and should be proud on how they closed the gap and played so well.
Well done girls.

Bride Rovers 3-12
We played the first round of championship in Cloghduv on Saturday morning the 8th of September, 2018 at 1.00 p.m. We had a lot of rain but the pitch was in excellent condition. At half time it was level pegging at 5 points a piece. Bride Rovers misread a few goal chances and some very good goal keeping by the opposition keeper. Cloghduv spurred one goal chance but good defending by Claire Hickey saved the day.
Bride Rovers got a goal and a point quickly after half time and the advantage quickly swung our way. Cloghduv fought to the bitter end and are a fine team.
Team: Rachel O’Flynn, Chloe Murphy, Emily Larkin, Emma Barry, Caoimhe Hazelwood, Katie Quirke, Claire Hickey, Aine Keating Aislinn O’Connor, Sally Mc Carthy, Siobhan O’Sulivan, Shauna Hayes, Fiona Barry, Sarah Murphy, Arianne O’Flynn,Caoimhe O’Sullivan, Rebecca Walsh, Ella Quinlan
On 8th of September 2018 we played Sarsfields G.A.A. at Pynes Pitch. Despite the sky’s opening with driving rain our girls played a blinder against a strong team. Despite defeat 3-03 to 1-00 we were 3 pucks of a ball from a County Semi Final. I have to believe some of the Cork Senior team were watching and we’re inspired to their victory by watching the gallant play of the Bride Rovers U-12 Camogie team.
