NA GAEIL GIRLS  U12:This was a game which gave us a chance to try some of our younger players in new positions. Na gaeil started slowly with the castle forwards but Ciara and Eimer worked very hard to keep us in touch.

Siún made herself available for every ball and Aoife kept her forward scoreless. Síle and Megan had their best games of the season. Cara and Kealinn played with tenacity and can be very proud of their performances.
At half time with the opposition 8 points up, manager Philip emptied the bench. Sarah Barrett kept the best castle forward scoreless in the second half and Freya dominated their midfield.

With defence secured our full forward line cut loose and Siena Lucey who is still under 10 s scored an incredible four second half goals when she came on. Kayleigh showed she can operate from midfield if required and Emma scored two more to take her tally this season to 9 goals.
Ailbhe made a few dynamic runs when she was introduced cumulative in a fine point from play.
Overall a great team performance which leaves us top of the preliminary round table and heading into the final on Tuesday with optimism.Na Gaeil 7-5 castlegregory 4-6
