Ladies under 16 league
13 July 2017
Aodh Ruadh 2-9
Saint Eunan's 6-12
Father Tierney Park
The under 16s had their opening league game against Saint Eunan's last Thursday in Father Tierney Park. Playing with the aid of the breeze in the first half, Aodh Ruadh had the bulk of the play and created plenty of scoring chances. Ana Keon got the side's first point early on, quickly followed by a Brídín Maguire 45. Eunan's got a point, but Aodh Ruadh answered with scores from Sara Jane Keon, Alicia Clyne and Brídín Maguire (2). A goal for the Letterkenny girls going into the second quarter lifted them and they went on to level the game at 0-6 to 1-3. However the Shamettes responded well and after a fine drive through by Cáit Gillespie, Brídín Maguire was on hand to palm home past the Eunan's keeper. Maguire added a free as half-time closed in to send the sides in at 1-7 to 1-4 at the break. Ballyshannon couldn't get their game going with anywhere near the same fluency in the second half and Saint Eunan's used the breeze well to score readily. Despite 1-1 from Brídín Maguire and a well constructed and taken point by Leah O'Brien for Aodh Ruadh, the Letterkenny girls ran out 2-9 to 6-12 winners. The Ernesiders had good displays from Eilish Gallagher in nets, Aisling Gallagher, Tia McFarland and Aideen Walsh in defence and from the half back line of Síofra Hughes, Caitlin McGarrigle and Ella Clancy. Ana Keon and Andrea McGlynn worked tirelessly in the middle of the park. Up front Brídín Maguire, Leah O'Brien and captain for the day, Cáit Gillespie all did well.
