U16 Girls, FAI National Cup, Killenaule Moyglass v Newport Town AFC

U16 Girls v Killenaule Oct 28 2017
Sunday, October 29 2017 (Killenaule)

Our U15 girls travelled to Killenaule to take on Killenaule/Moyglass in the U16 National Cup. Despite a good start from the girls, Killenaule/Moyglass strength started to show as they took control of the game. Emma Maloney was having a great game in goals, pulling off some great saves, our back line was under pressure with 2 of the backs coming off with injuries before half time. Despite the differences in age and strength our girls never gave up and played some of their best football in the last quarter of the game. This pressure eventually paid off with Rachel Carey scoring from a free kick after the keeper was forced to handle the ball outside the box. We are very proud of all the girls who gave it everything under extremely tough conditions and managed to keep going right to the end. Now we know what the National Cup is all about we will be back again next year. I would like to thank Killenaule/Moyglass for the post-match refreshments and hospitality, they are a good side and we wish them the best of luck in next round of the National Cup. We would like to thank all the parents for travelling down, giving great support and encouraging the girls all the way.

Squad; Emma Maloney, Sarah Finn (Captain), Sarah Kelly, Leah Moran, Abbie Lenihan, Leona Bourke, Roisin Power, Kate Harvey, Rachel Carey, Skye Sheehy, Kaitlyn Bradshaw, Rosie Quirke, Claire Kennedy, Leah Guerin and Jenny Keppel.
