Kilmeena LGFA welcomed Balla under 16 girls to Kilmeena GAA Pitch today in what was a historic day for their club. This was the first time Balla fielded an U-16 girls team and if today’s performance is anything to go by their future looks very bright. Kilmeena had the advantage of a strong North Westerly breeze blowing down the field in the first half. This helped the Kilmeena sharp shooters register a few scores early on which settled the team into our first football match of 2019. The Kilmeena girls played lovely football with great support for one another. Balla defended well against the breeze while their Goalie pulled off a number of great saves to keep the game competitive. Both teams showed great skills throughout the game especially in the second half where the Balla girls never gave up. Thanks to the Kilmeena U-14 girls, Lisa, Eabha and Aisling for making the effort to play with the U-16’s today. The Kilmeena girls that played today were,
Aoife Gibbons, Mollie Keane, Holly Barrett, Megan O Malley, Keeley Hastings, Abby McGreal, Aine Regan, Sarah Gilliespie, Laura Kelly, Rachel Gibbons, Ciara Joyce, Evie Flynn, Emma Murray, Megan Mulchrone, Aisling Hoban, Lisa Hastings and Eabha Carney.
Congratulations again to Tony, Liz and the U-16 girls from Balla. Kilmeena wish you well in the years ahead.
