12 young ladies had an early start on Saturday morning as they headed to Ballymackey in Tipperary for this u17 Munster Cup fixture.
We were lucky enough to be afforded the chance to travel by bus .
And the trip was Kindly sponsored by
Bubbles and Bows .
It’s fantastic to see local Buisness supporting local clubs , and our girls were thrilled with the day Out .
The girls took to the pitch against a strong North Tipp outfit . And although going toe to toe with the opposition. Two quick goals in the first fifteen mins left us chasing the game . On the 38 minute mark BallyMackey added a third and two minutes later Emily Blackmore gave us some hope when she slotted to the Back of the net after a slick through ball from Molly Long .
We played much better in the second half in heavy conditions . With both teams adding a goal each to their tally . With Ella Brennan scoring for Mooncoin Celtic . The game ended 4-2 to Ballymackey .
A huge thanks to the young ladies that travelled today .
And to our hosts for the hot beverages and refreshments.
Saturdays game was refereed by a young man called Bobby O Connor . Who has been officiating games for almost 2 years . The performance from the man in the middle was suberb today . His handling of the game and both teams is to be admired and applauded. It’s very seldom that two teams leave the field with high praise for a referee.
Best of Luck to BallyMackey in the next round .
Also a massive thanks to Darren Lyons for his sponsorship of todays Match Ball .
