Youghal travelled to Newcestown last Friday evening, weather not our side for travelling but the journey had to be made.
Youghal had a slow start in the game with Niamh Roche showing some great play as full back to keep the ball out, and Clodagh O Keeffe in goals, but Newcestown kept the pressure on with 2 pts before Youghal realised they were in a game they needed to fight for. Youghal gradually came into the game and showed the Newcestown what they were made of with only the 2 pts separating them at half time.
Half time score 2-2 to Youghal’s 2 goals coming from Erin Galvin and Ciara Falvin.
Youghal started the second half a full speed, but so too did the Newcestown girls who ran in packs and stopped the Youghal girls hurling to their ability. A further goal from Niamh Kelly and points from Aofie McCarthy wasn’t enough to secure a place in the semi final of the U14 League for 2011.
