Kin­n­ear’s late strike saves the day for Carnew

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT -


A late Emma Kin­n­ear goal was the de­ci­sive score in a hotly con­tested U-16 ‘C’ cham­pi­onship fi­nal in Carnew on Satur­day af­ter­noon last.

This was a se­ri­ous bat­tle all the way through with An Tochar lead­ing by two as the game en­tered its clos­ing stages.

There were huge per­for­mances on the day from both teams. Aoife Stacey, Han­nah Kelly, Eve Leacy, Mac­ck­en­sie Mur­phy all had fine games for the Round­wood side who were very well sup­ported on the day.

The home side were ably driven on by So­phie Do­ran, Erin Cal­laghan, Emma Kin­n­ear, Alan Dagge, Ciara Wafer, Caitlin Hughes and Molly and Han­nah Mun­roe to name but a few.

But it was Kin­n­ear’s late goal at the death that broke An Tochar hearts and sent the home crowd into ri­otous cel­e­bra­tions af­ter a thor­oughly en­ter­tain­ing bat­tle from start to fin­ish.
