Aisling Annacotty 2- Borris St. Kevin's 3


Our U18 girlslost a heart breaker in the round of 16 of the FAI cup yesterday at home. Aisling Annacotty had a strong first half leading 2-0 at the break due to 2 perfect corners from Emma Donohoe that were both brilliantly headed into goal by Rachel O'Dell. Borris St. Kevin's had the brighter start to the 2nd half though and Aisling Annacotty struggled to keep up the pace with several girls playing through injury as there were no substitutes available. It was soon 2-2 and then with only a few minutes left, a goal mouth scramble resulted in the deciding goal. Well done to the girls on a heroic effort and congratulations to a talented Borris St. Kevin's team.



Murroe 0 – 2 Aisling Annacotty

Our U16 girls pulled off an impressive away win on Sunday. With Murroe having scored 7 in their previous game, and with Cara Griffin leading their line, fresh from her Irish trial, this was always going to be a test of determination and concentration. And that’s exactly what we got. A strong first 20 minutes resulted in two goals from Sarah Cleary corners, one an own goal under pressure, and the other slotted low to the corner from Susan O’Shea. Following that, Murroe stepped things up and it was all hands to the pump, under a sustained period of pressure including a string of corners. With Alicia O’Callaghan calmness personified at centre back though, and tenacious colleagues Íde Ní Ifearnáin, Karen Byrnes and Aoibhín Hayes resisting the urge to dive into tackles on the mercurial Ms. Griffin, nothing more than half chances materialised, which keeper Abby McCarthy mopped up in confident style. From her kick outs, we had two excellent breakaways, with the Murroe keeper being forced to make fine stops from Laura Donaghey and Sarah Cleary. Tightly marked all day up front, Laoise Ní Aodha used her silky skills to turn provider on several occasions, and Amy Costelloe provided further creative inputs with probing passes behind the defenders. In the second half, exchanges remained as tight as ever, with both sides pushing for the goal that could either change the match or end it. In such circumstances the tireless work rate of Ally Reeves, Emer Ryan and Amy Keogh was vital. With Murroe always dangerous on the break, non-stop concentration at the back was critical, and Mr. Mourinho would have been proud of the way the girls shut the opposition down every time it looked like we were in trouble. In this regard, Sarah Hall and Susan O’Shea had outstanding second halves. And just when the girls needed it in the last ten minutes, Lanny Raven re-joined the fray and added a final burst of energy to help the girls see it through and claim the clean sheet.
