Under 14 Girls

Garrycastle under 14 girls had no answer for a very good Caulry side in their first league match on Thursday evening.

Apart from a very competitive first five minutes and a good Garrycastle spell in the third quarter, Caulry were the better side throughout all over the field, with their skill and ability to move the ball quickly matched by their intensity and determination to win the ball, and after struggling to convert their chances early on they eventually put up the large score that their performance deserved.

However, this is a very young Garrycastle squad with all but one of the 25 players on duty eligible for this age group again next year and with no less than 10 players playing in their first match, and they did show good battling qualities throughout. Siobhan Ni Chluaid made some excellent saves in the first half, while Roberta Narmantaite, Aislinn Kelly and Isabella Hogan defended well, as did Matilda Parker after being switched into full back for the second half. Sallyann Joyce, Eve Murphy and Hannah Murray were the pick of the attack, while Amelie Henson made a big impact when introduced.
