Fossa 5-7 Ballymac 3-7
Our 2nd Co League game was played in glorious sunshine Sunday morning , both sides missing players . Similar to last Sunday our first half performance was well below the required level & we were behind 5-4 to 1-3 , Nicola Horan getting 1-1 , Emma Sweeney & Una Kerins adding a point each . The 2nd half was a complete change with the Ballymac girls throwing off the shackles and they played some fantastic football . We added 2-4 to Fossa’s 0-3 and had we taken more chances we could have easily won the game . Rose Ann gave us solidity in goals , Grainne Kerins commanded at full back , Tara & Micheala Murphy hovered up lost of ball & cleared effectively . Claire Kenney who’d a fine game closed down the Fossa centre forward & in doing so cut off their go to ball for kick outs . Aine Rice and Una Kerins drove forward along with Veronica Heaslip and Heather at wing back . Nicola , Emma and Leah did the finishing up front assisted by Rachel and Veronica O Donnell . All in all a very encouraging performance by all involved

U12 Girls North Kerry League Div 1
Abbeydorney 3-4 Ballymac 1-7
Saturday afternoon in Abbeydorney our U12’s kicked off their first game v Abbeydorney in the NK Ladies Div 1 league .
We started very well and had a lot of play but were finding it hard to get scores manly down to the strength of the Abbeydorney defence . The home side got the first score of the game after 10 mins a point we responded with an Ella Quirke goal but Abbeydorney tacked on 2-3 before half time to leave it 2-4 to a goal . The switching of Ciara Palmer & Geraldine Cassidy to midfield & Roisin Rahilly to Centre back and Alexia Weiss to full back gave us a lot more balance and go forward ball , the girls really put it in for the 2nd half and with 5 mins to go we had pulled the lead back to 2 points and were looking to go and win it , however a late Abbeydorney goal gave them the breathing space they needed we scored last point of the game to leave 3 points between us at the end. A great display against a physically stronger team and all girls played well on the night . Goalie & captain Kerry Hennesy was fantastic , Alexia , Roisin , Alice & Abbey did well in defence , Ciara and Geraldine at midfield and in the forwards Rachel Creedon , Kate Collins & Ella Quirke stood out . Rachel Griffen , Kate Feeney worked their socks off
Team : Kerry Hennesy , Kate Feeney , Geraldine Cassidy, Alice Brosnan , Abbey Leahy , Ciara Palmer (0-1) , Kate Collins (0-1) , Roisin Rahilly , Alexia Weiss, Rachel Griffen , Rachel Creedon (0-3) Niamh Lynch (0-1) , Allie Tarrant , Ella Quirke(1-1)
