u12 girls

Our u12 girls entertained Carrick today in a friendly in Ashgrove.
In Cold and Windy conditions The Younger girls of the u14s squad took on an energetic Carrick team. Down on numbers due to illness and the Kilkenny Game , Carrick came to our rescue giving us not one but two of their players . Aine and Clara . The girls started out well but 15 minutes in to the game the experience of the Carrick team shone through . Carrick ran out deserving winners today . But lots learned for the Mooncoin girls. Sophie Scahill settled into the role of defender very well today, Saoirse Dunphy at the tender age of 8 gave a fine display today, never one to let the side down , she stood up to defy her age. Also a big shout out to Katie Tolan who spent the bulk of the match as goalie today. She did a fine job on her first outing between the sticks. Thanks to Janice and Martin and Carrick for today’s game and we look forward to our next meeting .
