Girls U14 League Div 2
McHale Rovers U14 2-04 to St Bridget’s 3-12,
Playing their first match of the new season at St Tiernans Park against the breeze and last year’s div 3 winners McHale Rovers failed to register a score in the first half and had only one wide compared to 1-09 and 10 wides for the opposition, it could have been a lot more but for the heroics of goalie Laura Mulhern and the hard pressed full back line. A few positional changes at half time and with renewed spirit and determination the McHale rovers lady’s took the second half by a point and can take that positive with them for their next encounter away to St Marys (Aughamore) next s Wednesday evening. It was interesting to note the amount of parents who attended to support the St Bridgets team.
