Garrycastle 8-10 Mullingar 11-6

Our minor girls played Mullingar away in the first round of the championship. Down a few key players for various reasons left us with only 14. Playing with a strong wind in opening half Garrycastle notched up 4-4 but Mullingar got 2 goals against the run of play in injury time to leave them 4 points behind at the break. 

The second half was end to end with each side claiming goals  but Mullingar made better use of the wind and claimed the points. Despite the loss Garrycastle worked hard and were unlucky not to have added a few more goals but there were some fine performances throughout the pitch. 

Next weekend is round 2 against St Lomans.

Garrycastle: Sarah Kelly, Roisin McNamara, Faye Hannify, Rebecca Norris, Elmer O'Neill,  Stephanie O'Neill, Muirin Mulvihill, Ciara McGovern, Grace Halligan, Shannon Mulvihill,  Sarah Carter, Emma Hynes , Elaine McGovern and Emily Ruane.
