Our u12 girls team welcomed Desmonds to Ballymac on Saturday evening last for the North Kerry Division One Sheild Final.
We struck for an early goal when Labhaoise Mansfield was at the end of a passing movement to finish to the net.The Castleisland side had a goal of their own midway through the half but another Ballymac goal courtesy of Rachel Creedon on the stroke of half time left the score Ballymac 2-4 Desmonds 1-3.
The second half saw both sides give it their all and with both defences on top scores were hard to come by.A number of wides by the Ballymac forwards meant Desmonds were still in with a chance of victory however our backs performed heroically to ensure that the goal which would have brought Desmonds back into the game never came and at the final whistle it was the Ballymac Girls who were celebrating on a final score of Ballymac 2-5 Desmonds 1-4.
Joint Captains Alexa Weiss and Labhaoise Mansfield accepted the Shield on behalf of the team.
Great credit is due to both sides for serving up a very entertaining game which had both sets of supporters on their toes throughout.
