Our Corrib Oil sponsored U19 Girls had a brilliant victory over Shannon Gaels in their first game of the League. They will meet Clann na nGael and St Brigids in the next two rounds.
Our U16 Girls were defeated by a strong St Brigids in the Div 2A County Final. Pat would like to thank the girls for the commitment and hard work they put in for the year despite the pandemic. He also would like to thank all of the parents and additional volunteers who gave great support to the team, and of course to his coaching team for all of their hard work. This isn’t the last stop for these girls, and we look forward to seeing them flourish in the U19 and Ladies teams for years to come.
Team List: L. Wynne, E. Funke, Z. Kearney, A. Kiernan, S. King, A. O’Dowd, A. Kennedy, C. Byrne, A. Roddy, C. Cregg, E. Casey, N. Scally, S. McGrath, K. Roddy, L. Downes, B. Mulrennan, C. Reilly and R. Johnson.
Our U12’s met Northern Harps in Ballinameen to contest the Division 2A Final – the pinnacle of the year for this team who had lost just one of their fourteen games all year, their first of the season, against Northern Harps.
The girls started out well and won a lot of possession from the outset, this was enhanced with tigerish defending and pinpoint kickouts setting up our forwards. Paired with excellent support play, the scores followed and Boyle led at the break 0.06 – 0.01. Northern Harps returned with all guns firing, their hugely admirable work rate left only the smallest of margins between the teams at the water break 0-6 to 0-5.
A long range score by R. Sheerin put a little more light between the teams. And a pinpoint pass found E. Fitzpatrick on the edge of the square, leaving her one on one against her cousin in goals – the ball quickly rattled into the back of the net. Northern Harps were denied scores by the woodwork & a brilliant save by A. Brogan and epic defending led by R. Casey, G. Moran, G. Sweeney, H. Fitzhenry, L. O Shaughnessy and L. Sheedy. U. Padimanskaite and R. Sheerin each put another score up before a final point from C. Coyle. Leaving the game at 0.11 – 0.05. Cue an ecstatic Boyle and heartbroken Harps.
Thanks to the large, vocal, supportive and appreciative Boyle crowd that made up our cohort on the evening. What an end to the season, huge thanks to the dedicated parents, backroom team and management behind the girls. We’re very proud of this achievement and hope to see them continue to play for many years to come.
