Ladies: Na Gaeil v Concha Dhuibhne, North Kerry U12 Plate Final. We played in Killeen on Thursday night in the Plate Final. Conditions were ideal as we off to a good start with Siun and Grainne exchanging points.

Aoife Hartnett was unlucky not to squeeze in a goal after some great work from Aisling and Jessie. Corcha Dhuibhne scored 2.02 against the run of play, Sorcha scored another point before half time but it was Katie who was our saviour as she made 2 great saves to keep us in the game.

We composed ourselves at half time and Grainne got us going with a goal followed quickly with another goal from Sorcha after Chloe and Eve made a great turn-over. Aoife Barrett made a run up the field after Priya and Maya won the ball on our halfback line. Corcha replied with a goal but it was their last score of the game as defenders Elsie Peig, Grace, Roisin Cantwell, Caoimhe and Aoife Moynihan held tough in defence and with Aoife Barrett, Siun and Roisin O’Mahony in front of them, we were able to keep them at bay. Ava McGough came into the forwards and immediately set up Grainne for another goal.

We got more points from Sorcha, Siun, Roisin O’Mahony and Grainne with a huge amount of team play from Ava Rice, Eve, Cliona and Sarah Slattery. Final score in the game was 3.11 to 3.02. It was a great display of teamwork and deserve it for the work that they have put in into training, Well done Girls

ISG came back at us, scoring a quick 2.01 before Meabh teed up Sarah for 2 points before halftime.

We made a few changes at have time with Meagan going into the full forward line which paid off immediately with Meagan scoring 1.03 within the 1st 7 mins of the 2nd half. ISG scored a point but was their last score of the game as Caragh, Susan and Clodagh O Connor protected Laura in Goals.
