U16 Girls League: Kilmeena v. Carnacon
Kilmeena 6 – 14 Carnacon 5- 11
The Kilmeena girls away game was against Carnacon on Wednesday evening the 10th of July. Playing conditions were good with a slight westerly wind. The host team opted to play with the wind in first half, but even with this wind advantage in the first half the home side should have been further ahead. However, Kilmeena remained competitive throughout the half coming close to bridging the gap. As expected Kilmeena started the second half the brighter putting together some excellent passages of counter attacking football of which the home team at times did struggle to contain, scoring excellent points and goals. But despite this as anticipated Carnacon came back into it strongly but the Kilmeena girls to their credit did not panic in maintaining good possession with strong defending.
As its often said ‘’Goals win matches’’ the Visitors held their nerve managing to work the ball into the scoring zone resulted in them taking well executed points & more importantly goals that finished the game as a contest. In summary despite the score line this was a very entertaining & competitive game that could have gone either way, with the only exception been Kilmeena were a bit more clinical in getting scores at the right time.
Overall this was truly a great team performance. Thank you to the Carnacon for a sporting game.
