BRIAN BORU’S FOOTBALL

Last Wednesday we bowed out of the u12 B Championship with a defeat to Lattin Cullen in the County Final. We first had to play group games, these game were to categorize us in to A or B division. In the group stages we had mixed results losing to both Cahir and Mullinahone who the joined the A division. We went on to draw with Moyle Rovers in a very exciting match and we beat Fethard which put us into a B County Semi Final. We played Templemore at home in Ballylooby in the County Semi Final, this was a well fought battle both teams showing they wanted a place in the County Final. After a great game of football our girls emerged victorious. It was a huge team effort but credit must go to Makeala Rossiter who pulled off tremendous saves in goal, Linda Murphy who showed great determination through out the game, Caoimhe Ryan for her penetrating runs from midfield, and Mary Kenneally for her solid performance. We were only leading by a point up until the last minute when an Emma White pass landed in the hands of Ciara Morrissey who struck the back of the net. Victory was secured but they’d have to go out and do it all again in the County Final. An early goal for Lattin threw us a little, but the girls kept going. Lattin seemed to be doing all the scoring in the first half until Caoimhe Kenneally was fouled in the square a penalty was awarded which Caoimhe Ryan struck beautifully to the bottom left hand corner of the Lattin goal. The score-line at half time was 4-1 to 1-00 a tragic start for the girls, however in the start of the second half the girls appeared a much better team after some management changes. Jane Hyland adapted well to her new position at full back. Roisin Murray, Lauren O’Brien and Helen Burke kept the pressure on in defence. Nadia Keating even though being one of our younger players really stood up to the task she was displaying a man of the match performance and was cleaning up in the half back line and proving very hard to get past. Roisin Condon and Shannon Morrisey made great runs and laid off great passes to centre forward Linda Murphy who put on a display of scores including a well taken goal. Mary Kennealy linked up well with Mikeala Rossiter for kick outs throughout the second half and fresh legs from our substitute Chloe Enright helped out Emma White and Ciara Morrisey in the full forward line. Brian Borus only conceded a single point in the second half. Final score 4-2 to 2-1.

Team: Mikeala Rossiter, Helen Burke, Mary Kenneally, Lauren O’Brien, Roisin Murray, Kayleigh O’ Brien, Nadia Keating, Jane Hyland, Caoimhe Ryan, Roisin Condon, Linda Murphy, Shannon Morrisey, Caoimhe Kenneally, emma WHite, Ciara Morrisey, Chloe Enright, Roisin Flannery, Allanna English, Hannah Berry, Rebecca Burke, Niamh Lonergan Shauna Maher, Sarah Halley and Lorraine Burke.
