The Senior Girls put up a fantastic performance against Loreto Foxrock last Tuesday in the quarter final of the Senior Cup. Despite being under continuous pressure from the Foxrock attack in the opening 10 minutes, the girls remained calm and composed and turned the game around with Charlotte Stapleton and Lara Gillespie scoring in the first half. Holly Micklem was again outstanding in goal and was kept busy throughout making some crucial saves. Sophie Wall made it 3-0 midway through the second half, scoring a very well taken goal from a rebound.
A real quality team performance with everyone playing their part to contribute towards the win. Good luck to them in the semi-finals after Christmas.
The U-13 A’s lost 3-2 in a very entertaining match against St. Andrew’s. Both sides had plenty of chances to win the game and both keepers had plenty to do.
