★Match Report ★ The Naas U12’s Girls VS Celbridge U12’s Girls – 30th June 2016 @7PM Naas GAA
The Naas U12’s Girls and Celbridge U12’s Girls played out a very fast paced League match clash in Naas on Thursday evening (30th June 2016 @7pm); there was an excellent level of support , with a large number of people out watching the match, parents/guardians (The damp weather didn’t affect the excellent support) on both sides. We had a small number of players out on injury/holidays for Celbridge team, but this didn’t change the fact that we had an excellent turn out. With a previous away win for the Celbridge girls against Cappagh under their belt; our Celbridge U12’s girl’s football team were ready & fired up for the next challenge against their Naas opponents in this league match.
As the referees whistle started the game, Celbridge were the fastest into their stride and struck first with an excellent first volley goal by our forward, this was followed by rain of shots from the Celbridge attackers, follow by more goals, as even playing against the wind didn’t seem to hinder the girls.
Naas girls didn’t give up and in fairness; they did come back into the match in the second half, but at that stage the game was out of reach. As Celbridge girls had put all of their hard training techniques into practice and the Celbridge defence held strong only letting in one goal near the very end. The main battle took place in the mid-field between Naas & Celbridge over the game, but as the Celbridge mid-field won the battle and then supplied excellent passes to the forward attackers, who in turn were clinical & creative with their scoring.
Needless to say! it was another great performance from our Celbridge U12’s girls football team and it’s clear to see that these girls have learning allot since the start of season, with that defeat to Lexilip, which seems so long ago. I’ve no doubt that some of these talented girls will be playing for their County in the coming years. Their coaches: Brendan Pimlott & Sean Gallagher were very proud of how they all played on the night and even our new team members done Celbridge/themselves proud.
