Our Under 12s played the last of the Go Games Blitzes last week in Cahir. Our opening game was against Carrick Swans and our girls got a well deserved draw. The last game was against Cahir and Moyle Rovers led at the break despite playing against the wind. Lady luck did not smile on us in the second half and we were beaten by one score. The Girls played extremely well showing great skill and determination. We had some girls playing for the first time and they acquitted themselves extremely well. Our young heroines on the night were Emma Tobin, Rowena Dowling, Rachael Browne, Sarah O'Dwyer, Emma Cronin, Jenny Everard, Eimer Ryan, Aine Fitzgearld, Sophie Delaney, Kelly Ryan, Amy Norris, Ellen Buckley, Karen Meehan.
