Austin Stacks completed their 2019 North Kerry U12 programme undefeated after a win in Connolly Park v Ballymac in very windy and cold conditions on Tues 2nd April. With the aid of the wind the black and amber girls raced into an early half time lead of 5-4 to 0-2. Stacks bright lights in this first half included captain Kate Sugrue, Lion hearted Aoibhe Kilgallen, Ella Moore, birthday girl Chloe OSullivan, Amy Stack Leen, Aisling Browne and Clodagh Moore. Ballymac rallied in the second half ably lead by Gill Quirke, Anna Collins, Maura Culloty, Niamh Rice and Rose Brosnan, scoring 1-3 in the final quarter. Stacks Emily Flynn also impressed on her 2019 debut. However every one of the thirty girls who togged out on a horrible night. deserve the highest praise for such a sporting encounter. Final score Austin Stacks 5-8 Ballymac 1-5.
