The U16 girls travelled to Caulry in their first league outing on Tuesday evening. Unfortunately a rusty looking Garrycastle did not get the start they wanted, and they were outclassed by a better, more physical side. The Garrycastle girls had a great start with a goal scored by Ella Dowling within the first minute. However, this was followed by a Caulry goal and three points all within the first 10 minutes. The game continued end to end with a second Caulry goal followed immediately by a goal scored by Kacey Mulvihill. A Roisin Murphy point was followed by another two goals and a point from the Caulry girls. Caulry were now dominating but Garrycastle put in a rally towards the the end of the first half with a goal scored by Moya McKiernan and a further 3 points from Tegan Foley, Ella Dowling and Roisin Murphy. Goalkeeper Katelyn Byrne in her first outing for Garrycastle made a fantastic save to see Caulry leading 7-5 to 4-3 at half time.

The second half was dominated by excellent Caulry play and apart from two further points scored by Kacey Mulvihill and a neat goal from Roisin Murphy there was no real threat from Garrycastle although they do deserve credit for battling to the very end. Best throughout for the losing side were Emma Connaughton, Amy McGovern, Kacey Mulvihill and Roisin Murphy, while Orla Barry enjoyed a very good opening half.

Garrycastle: Katelyn Byrne, Orlaith Lynch, Emma Connaghton, Kayleigh Clyne, Arlene Devery, Jasmine Molloy, Amy McGovern, Tegan Foley (0-1), Jessica Frawley, Nessa McNamara, Roisin Murphy (2-1), Kacey Mulvihill (1-2), Meliagh McDonagh, Moya McKiernan (1-0), Ella Dowling (1-1), Orla Barry, Aislinn Kelly and Cadhla Kelly.
