Youghal travelled to Watergrasshill for their first game of this years league,on a wet cold day. The weather did not dampem the girls performance and ran out easy winners. This was helped somewhat that watergrasshill could only field 13 players so it was decided to play 13a side. It was the Youghal girls who got off to the brighter start by working hard for each other and taking some fine scores. The score of the half came when a long ball played out of defence was won by Shauna O Connell who turned her marker and made a good run to the 22 and kicked a high ball towards goal and it was Youghals Caira Crowley who won the ball and then turned the full back to drive a great shot to the roof of the net.
As the second half began the mentors made a number of changes, and it was very encouraging to see the girls coming off the bench to perform as good as the starting 13. The 2nd half was like a repeat of the 1st with Youghal well in control. With Youghal taking some more fine scores the signs are good for this young under 16 side. With our local derby with near neighbours Inch or next home game, this win was an important win to build confidence in this side. The Inch game will be played on sat 23rd of feb at 2p.m. Magners Hill.
