Monday 21st July
Athlone v Mullingar Shamrocks
Pairc Chairain

Athlone u14 girls completed their final league match of the year when they totally outclassed Mullingar Shamrock's in Pairc Chiarain on Monday evening 21st July. They went through the league undefeated and are now the u14 Division 2 league champions for 2014. These girls had faced Mullingar earlier this year in a championship match and were very fortunate to escape with a two point victory after coming form 11 points down at half time. This time it was a different story as Athlone started the game in brilliant fashion and scored at will with the ball hardly crossing the half way line. Niamh McGann, Karla McManus, Grace Halligan, Kelly Brill, Brionna Geoghegan and Nadia Molloy all scored in the first half to leave the score at the break at 9-6 to 0-0.

The second half continued as the first had ended with further scores from Karla, Brionna, Kelly, Grace as well as two goals from Emily O'Callaghan. Mullingar did show some of their qualities in the second half and managed 2-4 in total. The final score was Athlone 17-10 Mullingar 2-4. It was great to see all 24 girls getting a game and all played really well. Even allowing for the fact that Mullingar were missing a few players this was a fantastic performance from the girls. Their passing, movement and work rate was great to see and it continues what has been a super year.

They are now the Feile Shield Champions and League Champions. They are undefeated in the championship with one more game to play. If they continue to train as they have and in particular continue with their great attitude and willingness to improve themselves they will go a long way. Well done and congratulations to all concerned.
