Kinawley Too Strong For Our U14 Girls

Box Score

Jun. 6, 2016

Belcoo U14 Girls came up against an excellent Kinawley side this evening in their sectional game, the visitors running out comfortable winners however our Girls battled bravely and worked extremely hard for every ball throughout the tie.

Kinawley had a sizeable interval lead with Naomi McManus at the fulcrum of her sides best work as she accounted for the bulk of the scores. Keelan Murphy, Megan Murphy, Eilish McDermott and Aine Drumm all chipped in with scores along the way while Belcoo had done their best to curtail the visitors. Goalkeeper Mikayla Maguire made a number of good stops in the opening half.

In the second period, Belcoo had more joy and seen more of the ball. Again, they defended valiantly with Cara Gray, Sam Martin and Scarlett O’Connor working hard while Ciana McGrath put a big shift in around the middle sector.

Up top the Barrett sisters Sinead and Aine showed well and foraged for ball with Riona Keaney bringing a good save from the Kinawley goalkeeper in the closing stages.

Belcoo were to record a score when Ciana McGrath pointed a free late on. Kinawley though are a Division 1 side who have been one of the top sides in the county for a sustained period. It was a tough challenge for your young O’Rahilly’s who did their best throughout.

Training contniues on Thursday evening from 7pm to 8.15pm. More pictures can be found in the Gallery on the left.

Good luck to our Girls on the U10 team as they meet Tempo tomorrow, knowing a win sees them through to the U10 Final.
