Corduff Ladies got the 2016 season off to a winning start when the U14s defeated Doohamlet on Monday evening. In what was a very competitive encounter Corduff team led by Captain Elena McEnaney gave a super team performance. Corduff dominated the opening exchanges but by the interval both teams were level. Doohamlet opened stronger in the second half and by mid way through the half the sides were level again. The Corduff girls dug deep and edged out a well deserved victory on a score line of 5-7 to 4-7. Well done to management and players on a great start to the season. A special word of praise to the three new players Erica Smyth, Kerrie Ann Walshe and Fiona Corrigan who made their debut with Corduff Ladies! The team was as follows: Ciara Farrelly, Abbie McGivney, Shannon Duffy, Emily Hegarty, Georgia Smyth, Abbie Finegan, Elena McEnaney, Kerrie Ann Walshe, Erica Smyth, Kayla Hand, Annie Brennan and Fiona Corrigan.
