Un­der-12s – Hard luck to the un­der-12 girls who lost out to a strong Clonard/Vol­un­teers team last Mon­day night at home. The girls notched up an im­pres­sive score line with some well taken points but un­for­tu­nately as they say, goals win games out. The game fin­ished Clongeen 3-14 v 10-3 for Clonard/Vol­un­teers.

Un­der-14s – The un­der-14 girls are through to a fi­nal. So a huge con­grat­u­la­tions to the un­der-14 girls’ foot­ball team who played Sars­fields in the cup semi-fi­nal on Thurs­day evening in what was an ex­tremely tough game. The first half didn’t go Clongeen’s way as they went in at half­time with a score­line of 1-3 to three points, all from Me­gan McDon­ald.

In the sec­ond half the girls re­ally fought hard and Me­gan brought them back to a one point dif­fer­ence when she put the ball in the back of the net. It was end to end with just min­utes to spare when Sarah Ben­nett got the ball and cut through the de­fence and buried the ball in the back of the net too. Sars­fields got a free in the last kick of the game and credit goes to Clongeen’s great de­fence as they stood tall and saw out the fi­nal whis­tle to the de­light of the man­age­ment team and all their sup­port­ers. The fi­nal score was Sars­fields 1-4 v 2-3 for Clongeen.

The team was: Amy Doyle, Kate Mythen, Kate­lyn O’Grady, El­lieanna O’Grady, Aoib­hinn Cur­tis, Laura McCarthy, Katie Ke­hoe, Or­laith But­ler, Sa­van­nah Blake, Caitlin Mur­phy, Sarah Ben­nett, Roisín McCor­mack, Sarah-Kate Hop­kins, Me­gan McDon­ald, Caoimhe Gar­diner, Kae­lah Far­rell, Keela Daly and Ab­bie Casey. So a big well done to all the girls. A date for the cup fi­nal will be con­firmed in the next few days.

In­ter­me­di­ate – Well done to the Clongeen ladies’ foot­ball team that put in a solid per­for­mance against Fethard last Tues­day night in the In­ter­me­di­ate Cham­pi­onship Quar­ter Fi­nal. Clongeen hav­ing home ad­van­tage in front of a big crowd of home sup­port­ers put in a fine dis­play of foot­ball dom­i­nat­ing from start to fin­ish. Clongeen can only be de­lighted with the per­for­mance rack­ing up an im­pres­sive 6-19 v 1-1 for Fethard. Best of luck to the girls who now take on our near neigh­bours in the cham­pi­onship semi-fi­nal, the date and time is yet to be con­firmed.

Ju­nior B – The Ju­nior B’s trav­elled to Black­wa­ter last Mon­day night but un­for­tu­nately the game had to be called off in the first half due to a se­ri­ous in­jury to one of the Black­wa­ter girls. We wish her a speedy re­cov­ery. The date and time of re­play again is yet to be con­firmed, so watch this space for fur­ther de­tails.
