U13 away to Youghal

posted 2 Jul 2014, 14:57 by Pro Killeagh Camogie
The U13s got their season underway with a visit to near neighbors Youghal on Tues evening last in the Imokily league. Killeagh got off to a very strong start but lacked the killer ball and unfortunately Youghal first attack produced a goal for them to get the first score of the game. Killeagh went back up the field and thanks to some good play from Joanna Keniry got their first score when Aisling Tyrell followed a ball in and got it over the line. The game evened out for a bit after this and there was a break for some much needed water before Youghal struck for their second score to go 2 goals to 1 up killeagh kept pressing but couldn't add to their first score before Youghal added a point to go in 2:1 to 1 goal at half time.
Our girls were feeling the heat but were determined to take their chances in the second half. There was a bit of reshuffling which saw saoirse burns go into full forward a position she wouldn't be accustomed too but she wasn't long getting settled and soon had the ball on the back of the Youghal net to bring it to a one point game. The girls tried to keep the ball up in the forwards and eventually got a break when Joanna was fouled which led to another water break before she kept her nerve to slot the ball over the bar to level the match 2:1 a piece. More good play by our forwards led to a 45 which Joanna dispatched to the back of the net to give us the lead. Despite lots of pressure killeagh failed to add to our tally and were very grateful to keeper Laura Smiddy who pulled off two great saves towards the end to maintain our lead and to see us run out winners on a scoreline of 3:1 to 2:1.
This was some of the girls first win of the season but with the determination they showed I'm hopeful it will be the first of many.
