It was a bitter cold Sunday morning, but that didn’t stop the girls making the journey over to Carlanstown for their first match of the season. The game got off to a bit of a rocky start as the girls adjusted to the pitch, while the wind was against them. There was a lot of back and forth with the ball between the teams but superb work from Skryne’s defence kept the scores to a minimum. Brilliant working of the ball up the pitch led to a few great points for the Skryne side. The teams were tied but an unfortunate goal just before the halftime whistle let St Michaels take the lead in the first half: 1-04 to 0-04
This didn’t dampen the girl’s spirits though as they took to the second half with even more strength. They took full advantage of the wind in the second half kept the ball in their half for the majority of it, adding another 1-07 to their score.
A penalty that despite Skryne keepers valiant efforts unluckily went in was the only score Michaels got that half, leaving a final score of Skryne: 1-11 St. Michaels: 2-04
