Our Maroon team played their 6th league game of this year’s campaign when they hosted Carrigtwohill in sunny Magners Hill on Monday 14thJuly. Fielding many of last year’s U10 team the girls gave a great performance with all 17 girls fighting for every ball and playing some lovely possession football. Both halves were a tight affair with Youghal just shading both with some better finishing and superb defence by our goalie Ellie and full back line of Caoimhe, Jenny and Cara. Youghal opened the scoring with 2 well taken goals by Lucy and Chloe which settled the team. Carrigtwohill responded immediately and scored 1-2 but we increased our lead with 2 pts by Lucy and Kaiah. Once again Carrig responded with another well worked goal only for Emily to score a great individual goal by Emily after some great inter-passing from our mid-field duo of Mary and Aoibhe. At half time both sides were locked at 3-2 each.The second half started off in the same vain with our 2 Hannahs and Caoimhe driving on from half back setting up Chloe for a well taken goal. Our full-forwards Leah, Grainne, Ciara and Emma were causing difficulties for the Carrig back line which resulted with a great goal by Kaiah. Carrig finished strongly and brought us back to just 1 pt at the full time whistle. Well done girls on another super performance, the hard training is starting to pay off.
