Our u13s had mixed fortunes in their two games this week. On wed we played Erin’s own at home in the Imokily comp. The game was slow to get going after a delay in the start time but Erin’s own registered their first score with a good goal. This seemed to wake our girls up and the registered the next three scores with points from Elena, Aimee and Saoirse before some slack play on defence saw Erin’s own in for another goal just before half time to leave the score 2 goals to 3 points. We started a lot quicker in the second half and our pressure finally paid off when Elena found the back of the net. This was followed up with a goal from Saoirse when she was first to react when the goalie pulled off a great save to kick the ball over the line we added another point after this from Chloe Walsh to go 4 points and it remained this way til the end thanks to a great defensive effort to keep Erin’s Own out. Final score Killeagh 2:4 Erin’s own 2:0.
On Saturday we travelled the short distance to Castlemartyr to renew our rivalry. Playing against a strong breeze in the first half we failed to register any score as supply was limited to the forwards while Castlemartyr took all their chances to be up 3:2 to no score at half time. We regrouped at half time and went out determined to give a better performance. We started well with Elena finding the back of the net with a ground strike but unfortunately this was undone when Castlemartyr scored a goal after working the ball up from the puck out. We had some good possession up in our forwards but failed to convert from play or placed balls before Elena found the net again with a well taken free. This was to be our final score while Castlemartyr added on another 1:1 despite some great saves from Niamh o Connor to finish up on the wrong side of a score line of 5:3 to 2:0.
