Moyle Rovers under 10s visited St Marys on Saturday, March 31. There was a very good turnout for our first match of the season, all players from backs, midfield to the forwards contributing to the win against a tough opposition in St Mary’s. In goal was Aoibhe Browne doing well, with Megan Looby solid in defence, Grainne O’Donnell and Shauna Mitten playing well together to keep the back line cleared. Midfield was Alana Dowling, Aveen Kennedy and Michaela O’Donnell giving great supply to Nicole Delaney, Emer Mckeown, Tara McGrath, Mia Dowling and Grace O’Dwyer, the forwards showing great teamwork which resulted in many successful attempts at goal.
Last Friday our girls entered the county Feile finals in Duneske, Cahir. As per Feile rules you can only field a panel of 23, a major headache for management as so many have been committed to training over the last few months. First up were Aherlow. Our girls put in a great performance particularly in the second half with great individual score by Roisin Breen. Little did we know that the scores amassed in this game would see us through to the final later on. Next up was Cahir, a tight tense encounter, we were beaten by a minimum margin. Great credit must go to our defence, who kept it a low scoring game. And so it was we went through to the final on a better scoring average over the two games. In the final we played Aherlow. A great start by the girls saw us go in at half time 5 points to one up, the worst possible start to the second half we conceded a goal, and it was now a titanic struggle to the whistle. Every girl on the pitch put in an extraordinary effort to win, Claire Moore pulled off some brilliant saves, Emma Cronin befitting her pedigree was outstanding in defence. That said everyone of the girls must be very proud of their performance on the day. So now it’s on to the Feile proper in June. Best of luck to all concerned, the management would like to thank Aherlow for two marvellous games, and the hosts on the day, Cahir for a well organised competition, also a big thank you Ronan, Aaron and Ian for their coaching input.
