Three nil loss for Rearcross U-12 Girls, but improving game on game
Game was played in very wet and windy conditions under lights last Tuesday night October 4th, with Moneygall the visiting team. This was a nip and tuck battle throughout, Moneygall scored midway through the first half, but Rearcross had several opportunities in and around the Moneygall box but unfortunately couldn’t capitalise on them. Both teams saw plenty of possession, with the Rearcross rear-guard of Kate Kennedy in goals and Aoibheann Devitt and Maria Carr repelling several Moneygall attacks. The Rearcross midfield battled hard and more than held their own, in the inclement weather, Orla Carr battling hard throughout ably assisted by Shauna Carr and to no lesser extent by Lauren Ryan, Chloe Quinlan and Lauren Hartnett.
Moneygall we’re a physically stronger team and moved the ball well but Rearcross caught them from time to time on the counterattack. Abbie Carroll and Zara Maher breaking through on a few occasions, been denied by the Moneygall keeper Moneygall scored 2 late goals which flattered the scoreline, Ruth Johnstone (underage for next 2 seasons) and Anna Kennedy (also underage for next 2 seasons) fought tirelessly for the ball and can be proud of their efforts.
All Rearcross girls are improving at this level and will continue to improve with games, congrats to Moneygall on their victory.
Rearcross U-12 Girls: Kate Kennedy, Chloe Quinlan, Maria Carr, Shauna Carr, Aoibheann Devitt, Orla Carr, Shauna Carr, Abbie Carroll, Zara Maher, Lauren Ryan, Ruth Johnstone, Anna Kennedy
