U16s Through to Semi Finals After Sensational Win Over The Cats

(29 Jul 2018)

It has been four years since the U16 girls-in-blue have secured a victory over the gold-and-amber-cats. So, perhaps it wasn't surprising when Kilkenny pulled ahead with a sensational goal followed quickly by a point in the opening moments of the game. The Cats seemed to overwhelm Dublin in the opening quarter of the game,  forcing their attempts on goal out over the endline --but the Dubs refused to give up the chase. A point each from Meadbh Hicks (C.B.C), and Ciara Clohessy (Commercials) enabled the Dublin girls to refocus and steadily they worked their way back into a game. In the closing minutes of the first half the girls-in-blue trailed 1-1, to 0-2, but a point from Katie McDonald (BBSE) followed by three from Anna Sullivan  (St Vincent's) in as many minutes and on the half time whistle Dublin led 1-1 to 0-6.
