U12 V Trinity Gaels

25 March, 2012

In the beautiful sunshine today the U12 girls took on their latest test and gave a truly excellent account of themselves. We travelled over to Drumnigh Rd near Portmarnock, the home of Trinity Gaels. Fourteen girls turned out and all played a vital role in the battle that ensued. Trinity Gaels fielded twelve girls which gave us the luxury of two subs, and the chance to put on fresh legs when necessary. Bray took the first couple of scores but Trinity Gaels were not slow about getting a few back and the first half flew by with tit for tat scores leaving the two sides level at half time.

Commencing the second half the Gaels notched up a few scores quite quickly. However, our girls never gave up and they worked really hard to catch up finally winning a draw.

I would find it hard to single out anybody today and it must be said that the whole team worked so hard together as a unit. Key contributors were Eleanor Carroll Hayes in goals, Grace Browne in defence and later mid field, Emily Devenney and Eve Cunnane partnering excellently in mid field and Eimear Martin shone in the forward line. The work rate and skill shown by the Butler sisters, Jane and Laura was highly impressive. Final score was 3 goals and 8 points each. Heart attack territory for the mentors!!Well done to all the girls and keep up the good work!! The team today consisted of Eve Cunnane, Eimear Martin, Cara Meaney, Grace Browne, Laura Cahill, Eleanor Carroll Hayes, Eve Murphy, Nicole Ryan, Sadhbh Kavanagh, Kerrie Keane, Emily Devenney, Jane Butler, Laura Butler and Fionnuala McCarthy
