Athlone U12 Girls Vs Garrycastle: 08-May-2016

Athlone U12 girls had their third outing of the year at home on Sunday v Garrycastle. It was a lovely sunny afternoon, but with a strong breeze.  Athlone started well with the breeze at their backs and were first to score, getting two goals from Katie Dwyer and a point from Keeva Reid.  Garrycastle responded with a Goal, followed shortly after with 2 more goals. With Athlone now trailing Keeva Reid got another point for Athlone, but  Garrycastle added another Goal and at the end of the first half led 4-0 to 2-2.

In the second half Athlone had it all to do, playing against the breeze. It was nip and tuck for the first 5 minutes, with some great play throughout the pitch and points exchanged. Athlone then took the lead with two well taken goals from Katie Dwyer and a point from Keeva Reid.   Athlone extended their lead further with a well taken Goal from Leah Nugent and a point from Ava Martin. However, Garrycastle didn’t give up and scored a goal and a point in the closing stages. Athlone held out to win 5-5 to 5-3 with some fine defending in particular from Leah Nugent who had an outstanding game at center back.  Overall it was a well-deserved victory with a very good team performance. Next game is away to Kilbeggan on Thursday May 19th.
