U14 Girls: Co. League Div 1 Semi Final – Match Report by Gene O’Donnell: Against all the odds, (travelling two weeks in a row to a formidable opposition, losing the last round of the league agonisingly to a last minute Kenmare goal), it is difficult to take in the fact that Austin Stacks U14 girls showed incredible resilience and no little skill to emerge victorious in this Division 1 County League Semi Final. Played on a fantastic surface, despite the ravages of Hurricane Hector providing a tricky crosswind the Kilgarvan field held up remarkably well. The game was well officiated by John Ross and his job was made easier by the exemplary sportswomanship exhibited by both sets of players. The Rock girls now go on to meet the dominant force in juvenile Kerry ladies football Southern Gaels. Date and Venue to be decided. Their mentors in attendance took a keen interest in the game as they themselves go on in two weekends time to represent Kerry at the All-Ireland Fèile tournament. The score at half time was 3 goals by Heather McNamara, Aoife O’Rourke and Grace O’Connor. Kenmare 1-4. The final score was 5-4 to 3-4 with Lauren Dowling scoring a brace of goals in a two minute salvo. Laura was excellent in goals, Kathy, Bronagh and Mary Moore formed a solid full back line while a tenacious and warrior like combination of Clodagh, Shannon, (in most observers opinion, the player of the match)Róise and Grace Reidy were the rock on which most Kenmare attacks foundered. Ella and Eimear covered every blade of grass and linked up the play brilliantly. Gillian, Kirby Anne, Aoife won so much ball in the half forward line that they could set up a ball shop! The inside line were simply lethal. It will be difficult to see better finishing during the world cup than that on show by Grace O’Connor, Heather and captain on the night Lauren Dowling.
