Round 2              

Westmeath U12 Girls League   

Athlone 4-9 Goldsmith Girls 1-5


Athlone under 12 Girls followed up on their first round win over Caulry with a committed a skillful performance against Goldsmith Girls in Pairc Chiarán last week.  In what was a free-flowing and sporting encounter, the Athlone squad ultimately came out on top despite the committed efforts of Athlone's near neighbours.

Anchored by midfielders Gemma Mannion and Ceara Dwyer, Athlone weathered early pressure from the opposition and gradually played their way into a commanding position from which they didn't look back.  At the back, 'keeper' Ciara White snuffed out Goldsmith's forays forward, while the backs division of Sarah Costello, Sammy Okodugha, Sally-Ann Joyce and Emma Boyle ensured that the Goldsmith threat was contained expertly throughout.

As the game progressed, the expert support play of Áine Martin came more to the fore as the Athlone Girls continue to press their advantage.  Up front, Athlone's attack added to the team performance by capitalising on the platform provided by midfield. Emma Killian, Claire McNamara and Ruby O'Leary were committed and tenacious in exchanges with the opposition while Ellie Denby, Sadie Gaffey, Alisha and Ciara White all contributed significantly to what was an excellent overall team performance.

Athlone will play St Joseph's in the next round on Tue 07 May in Pairc Chiarán at 7pm

Athlone Team:  Ciara White; Sarah Costello; Sammy Okodugha; Sally-Ann Joyce; Emma Boyle; Áine Martin; Ceara Dwyer; Gemma Mannion; Ellie Denby; Emma Killian; Claire McNamara; Ruby O'Leary; Sadie Gaffey; Alisha White
