The Cappawhite ladies travelled to Thurles to contest the semi final of the U14 competition on Thursday evening last. This was the second meeting of the sides in the competition. Cappawhite had narrowly won the first game.
The Cappa girls started well and were in control from the start. They lead at half time by 6-6 to 1-2. However the Thurles girls came out after the break and banged in 3 quick goals which cut the margin to a slim 4 points. The mentors were left to sweat on the sideline before Cappawhite finally got to grips with the game and tagged on another 2-2 to secure the victory. Well done to all players for an entertaining game.
The Cappa ladies left all to the second half and against a stiff breeze to secure this game. They trailed by a point at the interval after Thurles grabbed 2 quick goals early on in the game.
