Athlone v Tyrellspass

Our Athlone U16 girls continued their excellent form in the latest round of their championship in Tyrrellspass last Thursday evening. Played on a dry calm evening but in very poor underfoot conditions Athlone started strongly and piled early pressure on the Tyrrellspass defence and were rewarded by a goal from Brionna Geoghegan which was quickly followed up with a brace from Ciara Egan. Points followed for Athlone from Lauren O'Connor and Brionna. Tyrrellspass did break upfield and scored a goal and a point but it was only a temporary respite as two further goals from Ciara Egan and another for Niamh Byrne as well as two points from Lauren O'Connor pushed Athlone well clear. The last score of the half was a goal for Tyrrellspass leaving the half time score 6-4 to 2-1 in favour of Athlone.  The second half followed a similar pattern with a further two goals and a point from Ciara and points from Niamh Byrne (3) and Lauren O'Connor and Kelly Brill. Tyrrellspass scored 1-1 in the second half.

The final score was 8-10 to 3-2.

Great credit must go the the entire panel of 27 girls that travelled to the game. All but three of the panel are under age again next year so the future is very bright for the Athlone girls.

Scorers: Ciara Egan 6-1, Niamh Byrne 1-3, Brionna Geoghegan 1-1, Lauren O'Connor 0-4, Kelly Brill 0-1
