U16 A LEAGUE
Fri 25 May Brídíní Óga 3-8 Dunloy 3-8
There won’t be a more competitive game in Fr Maginn Park this year than the opening match of tonight’s double-header with Dunloy visiting in the Under 16 league.
Our girls played in patches and were probably fortunate to escape with a share of the points as Dunloy’s first touch and striking was much crisper throughout and our defence was under a lot of pressure.
The visitors looked to be in a very strong position when they moved eight points clear with a strong start to the second half and Orla had to bring off some superb saves during that period of pressure. To the credit of our players they came back very strongly with a goal from Niamh McKay, followed by a goal from a free from Niamh Donnelly.
We even took the lead with Beth firing over, but Dunloy hit back with two points inside a minute and looked like holding on for the win until Aimee pointed a close-in free three or four minutes from time. We were left holding on for the draw to remain unbeaten in this the first game of the second round of the league.
