N Columba 2-6
Four Masters 2-10
Well done to our U13 girls who made the long trip to Glencolumbkille on Sat morning for their U13 county quarter final v Naomh Columba. The girls had a slow start to the match and conceded two soft early goals, but battled hard and got right back into the game, with 6 points before the short whistle.
In the second half, despite playing into a very strong wind blowing in from the sea, our girls got two early points to settle them down. Carrying the ball up the field, time after time and defending like tigers, they struck for 2 well deserved goals mid way through the half. The defence continued to stand up to the Naomh Columba long balls being delivered with the wind, but when that didn’t work for the home team, the young Four Masters ladies started to turn them over, when the home side started to carry the ball forward. An unbelievable effort from all our girls that togged out, despite the terrible conditions for playing football on the day. The Four Masters girls have now qualified for a county semi final v Cloughaneely, to be played next week. Time and venue to be confirmed
