Minor Dublin Camogie Development League

6 April, 2014

We played Cuala in our last match of the group stages on Sunday in Shanganagh Park.Having won 4 of our last 5 matches in the league. Cuala needed to win to finish clear at the top of the League at the end of the group stages, while we needed to win to draw level at the top. The first half was a great contest and very tight affair we had a lot of chances but went in behind 2.4 to 2.2. Cuala got off to a great start in the second half by scoring a goal and 2 points to leave them ahead a goal and four points.But then we started too play and what a finish.We had some great scores from Clare, Niamh, Kellie, Aoife, Anna and Coaimhe but it was the supply of ball from our defence and midfield who drove them on. We scored 3 goals and 8 points in the second half to run out winners on a scoreline of 5.10 to 3.10.This was a great performance from all the girls.Hard luck to Cuala who contributed to a great game.We had heros and leaders all over the pitch from Sophie in goal,Caitlin and Orlaith on the full back line,Nicola,Lauren and Niamh on the half back line and Sarah and Roisin in the midfield.We have a panel of 20 girls and on the day 5 were missing due to various reasons but the training and hardwork is really starting to show. Well done girls on a great performance.  Team, Sophie Mooney, Caitlin Hand, Orlaith Griffin-Carroll, Nicola Holland, Lauren Sweeney, Niamh McCormack, Roisin Quigley Capt, Sarah kate Hayde, Anna Molloy, Kellie Gilbert, Kellie Waters, Clare Holland, Coaimhe Lohan and Aoife Connaughton.
