Corduff Ladies: U12 League Final
Corduff Ladies U12 team reached the League final against Monaghan Harps which was played last Sunday in Tyholland. This team has played super football all season and Sunday was no exception as this was an excellent game of football from end to end by both teams. The halftime score was only 0-2 to 0-1 to Monaghan Harps. Such a low score is testament to the effort made by both teams. Even though the middle period doesn’t count on the scoreboard it certainly counted on the field of play. The 2nd half proved to be another very tight contest between the sides as the game ebbed and flowed. Monaghan Harps did extend their lead in the second half but once again the Corduff Ladies narrowed the margin but it was Monaghan Harps that proved stronger by the final whistle. Although defeated the Corduff girls can hold their heads high and massive thanks to their mentors Sinéad, Eva, Courtney, Paul and Darin for their commitment and dedication during the season. The panel was as follows: Ella Jane McKeon, Sophie Connolly ( JC ), Anna Monaghan, Stacey McEntee, Elaina Hand, Aoife Mee, Áine Byrne, Emma Dearey, Abbie Callan, Amy Hanratty ( JC ), Ella Marron, Cerys, Mya Mai, Ellie King, Kathryn Barker, Lily Marron, Chloe Culleton, Sophie Gardiner, Katie Mullen, Arwen O’Neill, Colleen Hand, Caithlin Connolly, Eimear Chorchel and Gabriella Gomez.
Corduff Ladies would like to extend a massive thank you to Dermot Hand and Gareth King on sponsoring a super set of jerseys which they presented to the teams and mentors last Friday in preparation for the final.
