Our U12s got their season underway with a trip to Watergrasshill on Wednesday evening. We hit the ground running and were dominant from the throw in although due to some wayward shooting there was 10 minutes gone before we registered our first score with a lovely point from Elena Kelleher. Our backs had a very quiet half but were alert to the challenge when they needed to be. Elena followed up her point with a goal on 18 minutes and this was followed by a goal from our captain on the night Sarah Roche just before half time to leave the score 2-1 to no score.
We moved players around at half time just to change thongs but it had no major effect as we were still well on top and Elena found the top corner with the first score of the second half. This was followed by a goal by Aimee Kearney and another one from a free for Sarah Roche just before the ref blew it up to leave it 5:1 to no score at the end.
Panel on the night was Zoe Whelan, Miriam Keniry, Aimee Kearney, Sarah Kent, Megan O'Donovan, Sarah Roche, Emer Cowhig, Elena Kelleher, Aine O'Driscoll, Niamh O'Connor, Sarah Smiddy, Aisling Tyrell, Amy McCarthy, Ava Cunningham, Kate Gould, Clara Scully and Anna Sheehan.
It was a great to get our first win of the season especially to get it with a great performance by every girl. Here's hoping its the first of many.
