U13 Girls Footballers sail past Clontarf 2015-03-15 12:55:00

Division 5N  - Clontarf 0-0  - St Brigids 7-7


St Brigids U13 girls continued their fine form on Saturday in St Annes Park beating Clontarf by 7 goals and 7 points.


With a delayed start, waiting over 30 minutes for the ref to turn up, the girls started brightly and pinned Clontarf into their own half for vast periods of the game.  


Amelia Ryan and Ava Duignan ran the midfield and worked exceptionally hard providing good service for the forwards. Amy Lawless showed her strength going forward and Tara Coffey’s speed was always going to cause Clontarf problems. Grace Maher, Emma McGrath and Mia Malone were valuable forwards on the day, with Emma having her best game yet for the team.


The backs defended very well when Clontarf attacked and should be proud of their clean sheet. Amy Boyle, Ella Mansfield and Ruth Hanley were rarely troubled. MeadbhQuinn and Katherine Dunphy were strong in the half backs as the scoreboard ticked over with ease.  Aoife Coffey made her debut as goalkeeper and provided some excellent saves and long kick-outs for the midfield to chase.


The second half continued in the same style as the first with St Brigids piling on the pressure and taking their scores.


It was a happy trip back to Russell Park with the girls 2 from 2 in the league.


Girl of the match – Amelia Ryan for her tremendous workrateand skilful running with the ball.
