Our U12 Gold team played their second league fixture away to Mayfield on a lovely sunny evening for football. From the throw in the Youghal girls playing with the hill quickly got into their stride to pressurise the Mayfield defence. Their efforts were initially denied by a stout Mayfield full back line but were eventually rewarded with 2 quick goals. At half-time Youghal lead 4-0 to no score thanks to heroic efforts from all of our backs who welcomed Cara back after recent injury. In the second half Mayfield were rewarded with some lovely scores for their sustained efforts but the Youghal forwards picked off some lovely points after some nice inter passing from mid-field up. Well done girls on your 2nd league victory, next up is Fermoy A in Magners Hill on May 6th @ 7pm.
Panel: Rebecca (Capt), Kate, Niamh, Abby, Cara, Ciara, Éabha, Niamh, Sarah, Sorcha, Lesley, Chloe, Hannah O, Jenny, Emily, Kaiah.
Our U12 Maroon team welcomed 2013 county champions to Magners Hill to play their 3rd game of this year's league. Against an older and stronger Erins Own team the girls found themselves under pressure from the throw in. Some quick scores settled Erins Own but the Youghal girls could not be faulted for their efforts over the 2 halves and pressurised the Erins Own defense in the 2nd half when playing with the elements. Next up is an away game to St. Colmans in May.
