Ballymore vs Round Towers
Ballymore u15 girls played at home against Round Towers on October 17th. With a number of players missing some of the girls were playing in new positions. Despite this the team played well together and proved tough opposition for Round Towers. Sofia O’Sullivan started the scoring for Ballymore with a well taken point followed soon after by a point by Hazel. A well timed pass by Siobhan led to the first of 2 goals by Hazel. Siobhan and Molly both scored goals in the first half and Heather scored a point. This gave Ballymore a good lead at half time. Round Towers made some changes at half time and came out strongly in the second half. Ballymore had some great runs of play in the second half. A free taken by Heather from the sideline was caught by Amy Mahon who put it straight over the bar. Congratulations and well done to Shannon Doyle for making her debut in goals as Cody was carrying an injury. The backs had a great game coordinating well making it very difficult for Round Towers to move forward.
Ballymore 6-5 Round Towers 2-7
