U/12S win again.

Our U12 team travelled to Borrisleigh on Saturday last in the hope of qualifing for the knock-out stages of the championship. Both teams braved the inclement weather and  battled in tough conditions.  Borrisleigh got the better of the first half leading 1-02 to no score at the break. Kickhams came out in the second half a much hungrier team and settled quickly  to score a goal.  From then on they went from strength to strength with the backs and mid field holding firm and the forwards adding two more goals and a point to leave the score 3-01 to 1-02 at full time. Well done to the girls on a great disply. Special thanks to the team mentors and supporters who spurred on the girls so well.  They now have qualified for the quarter-finals, yet to fixed. Training continues for U12`s on Wednesday from 6pm.
