Our girls teams have had a busy start to the new school year with all three school teams seeing action.
Our Senior girls have played two matches. They had a hard earned draw vs St. Nathy’s Ballaghaderreen in our first match away from home
Result: 3:9 to 3:9
Our second game game vs Carrick CS in St. Felim’s saw us go down by 9 points in a tough open game of football where the score didn’t reflect how close the game was but the best team on the day won.
Score: 2:8 to 5:8
That leaves us needing to win our last two games vs Ursuline, Sligo on Monday 17th October in St. Felim’s and our final game vs Abbey CS, Boyle. This is quite possible if we have a full panel to pick from and that would see us qualify from the group, most likely but depends on other results.
Our junior girls have had two games to date and they recorded victories in both matches.
We played St. Joseph’s, Castlebar in St. Felim’s and beat them.
Score: 6:16 to 5:5
In our second game, though short a few starting players, we beat St. Mary’s , Ballina in St. Felim’s
Score: 5:15 to 2:5
We have 4 games left to play and the top 2 meet in a final. Our next game is a difficult away match vs St. Brigid’s, Tuam.
Having won U14C last year our girls are playing in a higher division, this year. In our first game we played St. Clare’s, Manorhamilton in St. Felims and after a great tussle were unlucky to lose by 5 points. While St. Claire’s deserved the win our girls gave a great account of themselves.
Score: 2:8 to 5:8
We have 2 matches left vs Carrick CS and Ursuline, Sligo in our group. If we win both we will qualify from the group. Either way the girls will have blitzes ( 1st years) and challenges over the school year.
