Garrycastle 3-05     The Downs 1-06

Our under 12 girls put in a fantastic performance in The Downs to beat the home side and earn a well-deserved place in the Division 4 final. In the opening minutes The Downs attacked but Lara Ellen pulled off 2 great saves and this was followed by great defending all through the opening half from Eve, Andrea and Erin with great support from Mandisa and Rebecca. Garrycastle eventually opened their scoresheet with a goal from Hazel and then a second from Siobhan with great help from Juliet, Nicole and Mairead. At the break Garrycastle had a 4 point lead and were going into the second half with the wind to their backs. 

Grace and Hazel worked so hard all through the second half and both added to the score line. Davanshka cleared a lot of ball into the forwards. Positive play from Amelie and Tanya put pressure on The Downs and helped increase the lead and Trudy, Doireann, Hannah, Olwyn and Ella won plenty of ball on their introduction. The Garrycastle girls worked passionately in the last 5 minutes making great tackles and defending all over the pitch to hold onto a 5 point lead and win the game.

GARRYCASTLE: Lara Ellen, Eve, Andrea, Erin, Mandisa, Devanshka, Rebecca, Grace, Hazel, Amelie, Tanya, Nicole, Mairead, Siobhan, Julie, Hannah, Trudy, Olwyn, Doireann, Ella.
