DIVISION 1 LEAGUE
Tues 1 May Brídíní Óga 3-2 BALLYCASTLE 6-13
The first half of tonight’s Division 1 game was a bit of a reality check on what can happen when we get off on the wrong foot – three points down after two minutes. Our timing and touch were off, we seemed to struggle to contain any of the opposing players in the opening half with the defence under constant pressure and only a couple of runs from Torie, Shauna and Ashling to relieve that pressure.
The second half was an improvement on the first however and, even though conditions deteriorated significantly, we worked much harder and tried to play short ball to colleagues, rather than simply lash it on.
We probably are not as bad as the opening half suggested, but we have a bit of work to do yet in order to compete at the very top level.
