The Kilmeena girls got their 2014 season underway this evening when they played their first game in the U14 league. The game was played at home and ended in a good win over Swinford/Kilasser. Captained by Lilly Brady and aided by a strong breeze the team competed with determination in the first half and went into the break with a good lead.
When the game resumed Kilmeena were on the back foot with Swinford/Kilasser playing some good football, notching up some fine scores of their own, to get back in contention.
However with great defending and a few positional changes the Kilmeena girls began to get on top again and closed out the game to win on a score line of 9 - 5 to 5 - 6 points.
All the girls are to be congratulated on their great performance with special mention to the two younger girls Ciara Joyce and Laura Kelly who put in a wonderful effort when introduced.
The next game for the U14 girls is on Wednesday 23rd April away to Kilmoremoy.
Please come along and support the girls.
