Athlone 9-13 Mullingar Shamrocks 7-7
Athlone U14 Girls continued their winning ways on Tuesday last against Mullingar Shamrocks in Pairc Chiarain with a final score line of Athlone 9-13 Shamrocks 7-7. Shamrocks could only field 12 players so the game started with 12 a side. Athlone dominated from the throw in and scored a goal through Niamh Byrne in the first minute. Niamh followed up with a point from the kick out and Lauryn Mitchell scored another point almost immediately. Two quick goals from Brionna Geoghegan & Niamh Byrne left the scoreline after 5 minutes at 3-2 to 0-0. This trend continued for the rest of the half with Niamh Byrne adding a further 2-5, Brionna a further 1-1 while Chloe Moran scored a point and Kelly Brill a goal. The half time score was Athlone 7-8 Sharmocks 2-0.
Athlone maintained their dominance at the start of the second half and added further scores through Niamh Byrne 0-1, Chloe Moran 0-1, Brionna 1-3 and Niamh McGann 1-0. Athlone management then changed the entire team to give their full panel a run out. The game became disjointed after so many changes and Shamrocks took their opportunity to score a number of late goals and points to reduce the deficit. However the result was never in doubt and the final score was 9-13 to 7-7. Tremendous credit must go to the full panel of 30 players who continue to turn up for training in large numbers and the improvement in the team is remarkable. The next game will be against Garrycastle in a number of weeks time but there will be a large number of challenge games between now and then to give every one a game.
Scorers: Niamh Byrne 4-6, Brionna Geoghegan 3-4, Kelly Brill 1-0, Niamh McGann 1-0, Chloe Moran 0-2, Lauryn Mitchell 0-1.
