The under 16 girls put in an excellent performance against Goldsmith Girls in their second outing in the league last Tuesday. Garrycastle got off to a blistering start and scoring three goals in the first 10 minutes. Goldsmiths settled and responded with a couple of points, but another Garrycastle goal left the score 4-0 to 0-3 at the end of the first quarter. The second quarter saw another exchange of goals and points with Garrycastle going in at the break ahead on a very unusual score of 6-0 to 0-5.

The second half was a much more one sided affair with Garrycastle upping their work rate even further and they were now adding points to their total with a string of impressive scores coming from the forwards and midfield.

The final whistle saw a comprehensive margin of victory for Garrycastle but great credit must be given to the opposition who continued to battle to the end and will have plenty of better days ahead. This was an all round team performance from Garrycastle with every player really upping their performance after a disappointing outing a week earlier. The defence dealt very well with a strong Goldsmiths attack with Jasmine Molloy and Emma Connaughton particularly impressive while stand in keepers Ella Dowling and Kaleigh Clyne were both very good between the posts with Ella getting some great scores during her second half spell at full forward. Tegan Foley and Jessica Frawley were dominant at midfield as the game went on while Hazel Donegan, Roisin Murphy and Kacey Mulvihill were prolific in a fluent Garrycastle forward line. But this was a day when every player probably deserved a mention for her display.

Garrycastle: Ella Dowling (2-02), Kaleigh Clyne, Orlaith Lynch, Emma Connaghton(0-1), Jasmine Molloy, Amy McGovern, Jessica Frawley, Tegan Foley (2-02), Arlene Devery, Roisin Murphy (3-0), Kacey Mulvihill (1-01) Orla Barry, Hazel Donegan (3-03),Moya McKiernan, Nessa McNamara and Meliagh McDonagh.
