U15 Imokilly Summer League Castlemartyr 03 - 13. Dungourney 02 -02 Fellow parishioners Dungourney made the short journey to Castlemartyr on Thursday evening for the third and final match in the Imokilly League series. As visitor numbers were low, it was decided to play the minimum allowed of 12 players per side. A good number of supporters, old and young from both teams turned up to this eagerly anticipated match. Even with a some girls still on holiday, Dermot had 17 girls to choose from for his starting 12. With the team in position on the pitch the whistle was blown and we were off. Ciara Leahy opened the scoring for Castlemartyr after 4 minutes with a lovely point from play. Against the run of play Dungourney countered and raised the green flag 2 minutes later when a low shot evaded the swinging hurley of Ellen Harty in goal to open the scoring for the visitors. Castlemartyr continued to display great skill and inter team play an it wasn't long before Zara Bowles had added a brace of points to our tally which was followed soon after by a pointed free from the stick of Aisling Harty. Clodagh Mulhare, recently returned from injury after recovering from a broken finger, was back to her best causing all kinds of trouble for Dungourney's defence, gathering loose ball , escaping the attention of her marker and adding the first 2 points of an her impressive tally from play. Shauna Horgan and Aisling Murphy were doing stalwart work in the middle of the field snuffing out any attacking threat from Dungourney and setting up the numerous scoring opportunities of our own. Aisling Harty added another 2 points, 1 from a well taken 45 and then Clodagh scored her first goal of the game after more impressive play from our midfielders. Personnel were constantly being changed to give the girls on the pitch a well deserved breather and the ever eager girls on the side line a chance to get into the action. As each girl was introduced they slotted in to the team seamlessly. 3 more points, 1 each from Ciara Leahy, Tara Crotty and Grainne Lynch finished the scoring for the first half. In the second half Aisling took over goalkeeping duties from her sister, Ellen, who moved into the full forward position. The half began much in the same vein and Clodagh scored her second goal within the first minute of the resumption. Both teams battled hard in all positions of the field and scores were harder to come by with Dungourney's keeper dealing confidently with a number of efforts from Castlemartyr's attackers. Faye McGrath, Ciara Deane and Sadhbh Beausang again stuck to their tasks and doggedly denied the visitors any time to get comfortable on the ball. Another point from Clodagh was followed in the 10th minute by a second goal for Dungourney. It was another 10 minutes before another point was added by Zara which was quickly followed by our third goal. A blistering shot from Zara was expertly saved by the goalie but was quickly pounced upon by Ciara whose return shot found the back of the net. As the half drew to a close Dungourney scored the last point of the match. Well done to Dermot and all the girls on an excellent team performance with every girl giving the the level of commitment we've come to expect of them.
