U12 Girls: U12 Co League Div 4: Austin Stacks 3-03 v Legion 1-10 (report by Maurice MacNamara) : At the start of the year it was discussed eternally as it is every year “Will we put in a second team?”, we dont have the volunteers, we dont have the players, and an interminable other number of excuses are offered but when it comes down to it we always try and thank God we did it this year. Looking at the result it looks like another defeat for the Stacks B team, but this was no B team performance, they harried, they fought for the ball, they tried everything to win a game against all the odds. Legion were better than our valiant girls, they were stronger, had very skillful players and they had the best player on the field but what a fright the girls from the Rock gave them. Legion maintained the lead throughout the game but these Rockettes stormed back into it with a couple of late goals and tried everything to get the equaliser and winner but it was not to be. How proud the management were coming off the field, Pa and Jimmy gave every girl a game which is what you have to do when asking girls to turn up for a second team, you must sacrifice the short term for the long term. Every girl that got on the field tried their best and gave everything for the cause, alright we were beaten but I can assure you that our girls learned more in that hours football than a hundred training sessions. The general consensus afterwards was that if the Stacks had got the draw or won it would have been daylight robbery on the Legion girls, but sure we love a bit of football larceny now and again.
