U12 Girls: U12 Town League Rd 3 Austin Stacks V Churchill played last Tuesday Sept 22nd – report by Niall Lucey – Boy, do we like hard work! And we like to give ourselves hard work to do. What a super performance by the girls tonight. They showed great heart and determination to get the win in another nail bitter of a finish. Churchill initially led with 2 points until Stacks got a goal and a point to steady the nerves. Churchill chipped away and picked up a few frees to keep them in touch while a Chloe O’Sullivan from a free had started the engine. Kara Kirby scored a classy goal. We Started the second half with all the forwards working hard and midfield getting through a pile of work with the backs were outstanding especially in the second half being the first to every ball. Maria added a third and then bagging her second to secure a hard-fought victory as Churchill brought our lead back to 4 with a few minutes to go and pressing hard on our goal line! The subs were excellent too throughout even though not all got a game unfortunately. Well done to the girls – final score line- AS 4-2 to Churchill 1-7. Next up for the girls will be the final RD a home game V John Mitchels at 6.30pm this Tuesday Sept 29th.
