U14 Girls Result: Mooncoin Celtic 0 Lismore 6

We welcomed league leaders Lismore to a sun drenched Ashgrove this evening and the girls were eager to put Wednesdays performance behind them. A little shake up with the line up seemed to freshen things up with Emily Blackmore starting between the sticks and Mia Ponce de Leon leading the line upfront. For 45 minutes the girls stood toe to toe with Lismore and limited them to very few chances with the back four solid throughout and if it was breached, Emily was out on it very quickly. A lobbed effort on 25 minutes had Lismore leading 1-0 at half time.
The second half started in a similar fashion with the girls getting stuck in and forcing Lismore back with a couple of chances coming from corners which Ciara O’Keeffe delivered but a solid Lismore defence were tough to break down. With the girls tiring and changes being made, leaders Lismore showed their class with a few great goals. Not the result we wanted but probably one of the best performances put in all season. With all bar one underage again next season, this squad will use the experience from this season to great effect. Big thanks to referee Noel Lavery for his usual encouragement for both teams and also to Lismore for a very sporting game.
