SENIOR LADIES FINISH LEAGUE WITH ANOTHER WIN
Our senior ladies footballers finished off a fine league campaign with a good win against Aghada last Sunday at home in Rathcormac. It was a blustery day and we played against the wind in the first half. From the throw in it was obvious to all present that we were stronger than Aghada but we found it difficult to put that advantage onto the scoreboard. We settled before half time and went in at the short whistle leading by 2 points on a score line of 1-07 to 1-05.
We started the second half brightly but some very poor passing and decision making kept Aghada in the game until the final 15 minutes. Finally we found our rhythm and ran out convincing winners on a score line of 3-14 to 1-06. This was a very good league campaign for our senior ladies football team. If we had won our drawn game against Eire Og we could now be in the league final. We hope that they drive on now and carry their league form into the championship. Good look to all of the girls doing exams in the coming weeks. The scorers on the day were:
Katie Quirke 1-03, Grace Kearney 1-02, Niamh Barry 1-02, Grace Culloty 0-05, Leah Hallihan 0-01, Jennifer Barry 0-01.

U10 Girls Football : Thursday May 30th, Venue Lisgoold
On a blustery day in Lisgoold our girls turned out another fine performance. Eadaoin Delaney was captain for the day and elected to play against the wind. Bride Rovers started at a frantic pace laying siege to the Lisgoold goal mouth. After may near misses the girls started working the ball into a dynamic full forward line who quickly racked up the goals and points. Aided by the half forward line and midfielders we hit the break with 5 – 4 to no reply.
Second half would be more difficult with a full team change from 1 to 15 and an increasing wind. Our tackling , blocking and fighting was immense. Some of the movement and passing through the middle of the park was a sight to behold. Unfortunately for Lisgood although they battled to the end were unable to register a score as our full backs were in an unforgiving mood. We ran out comfortable winners with a positive score of 7 – 7. That’s a score every 3 minutes which at this grade and age is once again a great achievement.
Many thanks to the ref on the day Grace Culloty who let the game flow seamlessly which ensured the enjoyment for all involved.
