Junior Ladies win county league

November 7, 2018

On Sunday evening 25th our junior ladies travelled to Cahir to play against Cahir in the League Final. Observing St.Pat's before the match began it was evident to see they were focused on the task ahead. Indeed they did not disappoint. The first two points of the game from Una and Rachel proved the girls were here for a reason. Another goal and 2 points between Orla and Siobhan brought our score to 1.4 to 4points for Cahir at half time. St . Patrick's have a new manager over them (Thomas Grincell from Grangemockler) and its clear to see that he has worked very hard and indeed turned this team around. Little did we know that the second half was going to be a delight to watch the girls working very well as a team and putting good effort into getting some fine scores. Helen in the goal along with her backs Aileen Maeve and Nicola were as reliable as always.

The second half saw the girls score a deserved 1.9 scored by Orla, Aileen Kelly, Rachael, Siobhan, Deirdre and Sarah leaving the final score at St.Pat's 2.13 to Cahir 1.7. Congratulations to the girls on bringing the first piece of silverwear home for the year. A special word of thanks to Thomas Grincell for training and taking the time with the juniors.

Team were as follows:H.Hogan, N.Grall, A.Sugrue, M.Browne, R.Horan, S.Dunne, S.Sugrue, U.O'Brien, S. Mockler, R. O'Brien, D.O'Donovan, A.Kelly, A.O'Donovan, O.Meagher and S.Nash. Subs were N. Fitzgerald, E.Keane, S.Keane, N.Dunne, S.Hanly, N.Morrissey and J.Hogan. Missing today was L.Nevin.
