Our U12 girls recorded their second straight win in the league on a very cold night in Tourlestrane v Ballisodare. Following on from last weeks victorious opening day trip to Curry the girls continued from where they had left off.

The handling and support play on a wintry evening was fantastic to see from the start. Building from a great base of disciplined defending through the tireless running of the midfielders and the combination play of the accurate forwards the girls kept a tight grip on the game and built a match winning score in each quarter. The subs introduced put their own mark on the game in the final quarter keeping the pressure on a determined and disciplined Ballisodare team.

The tourlestrane squad was Amy Kennedy, Erin Deehan , Katie O'Hara, Jane Corcoran, Orla Fleming, Katie Cunney, Cora Gilligan , Mariah Normanly, Leah Walsh, Ali Walsh, Ciara Brennan, Jade Walsh, Lauren Normanly. Sarah Walsh, Emma Hegarty, Ciara Walsh, Aoife Walsh, Katie Hegarty
