The Kilmeena U16 Girls travelled to play The Neale last evening Monday the 3rd of July.
The Captain for this game was Jamie Geraghty, as it was a very wet evening it made playing conditions very difficult but in fairness to both teams it an entertaining Division 4 game. The home side started the better taking well executed scores, but the kilmeena Girls dug deep with notable performances by Ciara Joyce, Shannon Burke, Sandra McDonald, Mollie Moore who created lots of scoring opportunities which made life difficult for the home team full back line.
Kilmeena finished the first half a goal up, but the The Neale were not going to give up easily and started the second half brighty, but Kilmeena got to grips with their surging runs with strong defending by Chloe McGing, Dearbhla Grealis, Holly Barrett, Aiva Ryder, Laura Moore resulting in the home team been kept at bay by limiting their scoring opportunities. But at the other end of the field Kilmeena were finding their rhythm with Anna Moran & Laura Kelly making good runs which allowed kilmeena forwards to take some excellent assuring we finished out the game strongly, as its often said “Goals win games” and that proved to be the case this evening, well done to both teams who had to make the best of the wet conditions, thank you the Neale for a sporting game.
