Senior Football

 Junior Football

13-A-Side A County League Semi-Final

Bride Rovers 6-8 Mourneabbey 5-7.

We met Mourneabbey in the junior 13 a side league semi-final on Sunday in what proved to be a very close, hard fought encounter. The first half was very even, with both sides trading scores in a game that was end to end. The scoreline at half time was level 3-3 to 2-6.

We started the second half much better than our opponents, and established a healthy lead through some fine scores from players like Emma Roche, Meg Kelleher amongst others. Our defence was resolute throughout, with newcomer Rachel O’Callaghan & Aoife O’Riordan leading the way. And even though Mourneabbey grabbed a few consolation scores towards the end, we held on to win on a scoreline of 6-8 to 5-7. Up next are St Peters in the league final, which is set to be fixed for the coming weeks.

Team: Madison Parle, Grainne Noonan, Cynthia Buckley, Aoife O’Riordan, Evelyn Collins, Erin O’Keeffe, Rachel O’Callaghan, Karen Sheehan, Emma Roche, Katie Connor, Meg Kelleher, Sinead Walsh, Aoife Deasy, Elaine Culloty.

Subs: Sarah Barry, Caroline Broderick, Niamh Murphy, Clodagh Fitzgerald, Laura Pratt.

U16 Football

Thursday, May 1st, Rathcormac

Bride Rovers 3-13             Inch Rovers 1-4

We had a comfortable win in the U16 league over visitors Inch last Thursday. After our backs withstood some early Inch attacks, our forwards took over and kicked a succession of good points. Goals from Katie Quirke and Grace Culloty were added which left us with a good half-time lead, 2-10 to 0-2. The pace dropped off in the second half but a third goal from Emma Barry decided the issue and we saw out the match which now leaves us in a decent position in the league.

 Match Panel : Madison Parle, Sarah O Flynn, Niamh Murphy, Maria O Sullivan, Cait McCarthy,  Laura Quirke (0-1),  Emma Hazelwood, Grainne Noonan, Emma Roche (0-2) , Jessica Howard, Grace Culloty (1-8), Michelle Lane (0-1) , Shauna O’Connell, Aoife Deasy (0-1) , Katie Quirke (1-0), Andrea Quinn, Shauna O Connell, Kate Cody , Aisling Finnegan, Emma Barry (1-0), Aoife Howard, Rachel O Flynn.
