This was the U14’s sixth outing in their league campaign. On this occasion they were up against the new kids on the block, Na Piarsaigh, who have only been playing since the start of the season. They took the game to Youghal from the throw in, which was a complete surprise to both the Youghal mentors and players. Youghal were a bit flat throughout the first half and this allowed Na Piarsaigh grow in stature as the half progressed with the score at half time four points to one in favour of Youghal. Things could have been on a more even keel only for the outstanding display by our full back, Eimear Farrell.
After a stern discussion and a number of positional changes at half time, most notably Shauna O’Connell moving to centre forward, the second half began on a more upbeat tempo than what the first half produced and finished on.Shauna scored three points in the second half while Laura White and Catriona O’Keefe really put in super performances to finish on a high for Youghal. Well done to all.
