Athlone 1-5 Moate 0-7
Athlone U12 Girls put in a great team performance to overcome Moate in our first competitive game of 2016. In what was a close contest Athlone started the brighter getting two points on the board, but Moate fought back and at the end of the first half Athlone led 3-2, in a scoreline that didn’t reflect the Athlone dominance in the first half.
The second half started well with Athlone extending their lead with a goal and a point from frees. However, Moate put in a strong performance for the remainder of the game and at the end Athlone held out for a 1-5 to 7 point victory.
This was truly a team performance from Athlone with a panel of 22 on the night and all contributing to a well deserved victory.
