The mood was somewhat sombre on Monday evening as our U16 girls got ready for their Shield Semi final against St. Patrick’s.
Our girls were feeling the effect of our senior ladies loss on Sunday against the Geraldines as they bowed out of their championship run for 2018 in what was a disappointing run of luck for the team over the past few games having suffered some injuries leaving key players watching from the sideline.
But our U16 ladies decided to refocus our awareness in giving us an absolute cracker of a game that went on for 2 hours. Our girls had a slow start with the pats taking an early lead and dominating play in the first half to have the blues ladies going in behind 0-03 to Pats 2-04 at the half. But whatever words of wisdom & encouragement that were dealt out at the half saw a different team emerge at the restart, a team that fought hard to get back into this game.
Both teams showed they could score great points and hit the back of the net & pull off superb saves leaving the spectators engrossed on what would happen next as the final whistle sounded with both teams level on scores.
After another regroup it was the Blues ladies that showed the reserve in their legs as they started extra time with a real sense of purpose. The girls stepped up another gear and took the lead in extra time and maintained that lead leaving the Pats chasing the game. Thankfully our ladies finished on top with the final score
Newtown Blues 5-13
St. Patrick’s 6-07
But this was an epic 2hours of football with both teams showcasing everything there is to love about the GAA and team sports. Well done to all on a great evening of entertainment and never give up attitude.
It was a lovely fresh morning for the U12 Girls Patsy Thornton Memorial Cup Final. Friends & family of the Thornton Family came together to honour Patsy’s legacy with a great contest with St Fechins GAA and Geraldines GFC. This morning it was St. Fechins that emerged as winners but this competition has produced plenty of winners.
Patsy’s wife Jean, daughter Sinead & grandaughter’s were there to present the cup & medals to the teams. Well done to all teams that participated in the competition as we continue to grow gaelic in the county.
Thank you to the Thornton family for their support of this competition.
