Our Minor girls bowed out of the Minor Championship 2019 last Sunday 17th with a defeat against St Paul’s/Delvin. It was a cold but sunny November morning with St Paul’s/ Delvin having home advantage and referee Ken Daly getting the match underway at 12 noon.
St Paul’s/ Delvin struck immediately with a high ball lobbed in over the goal keepers head into the top right hand corner. They followed this with two quick attacks scoring two beautiful points. Shandonagh girls were on the back foot and St Paul’s/Delvin took advantage of this. Shandonagh had to attack in waves leaving their full back home alone. On the fast break, the conditions underfoot let the full back down as she skidded forward, the ball fell neatly to the St Paul’s Delvin full forward and Shandonagh goalkeeper could not prevent the second goal.
Another goal and two more points for St Pauls Delvin finished the first half 3-4 to 0-1.
Shandonagh had lost three key players to injury in the first half with Rebecca Maguire, centre half back, injuring in her right calf, midfielders Chloe Lyons and Roisin Killian both received blows to the head and had to be replaced.
Nicola Lennon took the team inside at half time and unfortunately we were unable to record the rousing speech she gave which inspired a fantastic second half performance.
The girls came out fighting and reversed their fortune when they scored 1-5 in the second half to St Paul’s/Delvin 0-1. Unfortunately Shandonagh had a goal controversially disallowed in the second half.
The final score was St Paul’s Delvin 3-5 to Shandonagh 0-5 .
It was not our best day on the pitch with the venue being a much narrower field than the Shandonagh girls are used to with their home pitch but credit to St. Pauls/Delvin for the win.
For a first time in a Minor Championship the girls enjoyed the experience and will be back for more in 2020.
Thanks to Nicola Lennon, Michael Maguire and Aisling Fry for looking after the team this season. Well done to captains Sarah O Brien and Anna Fallon. Thank you to all of the parents for supporting the management team and the girls in their matches this season. Enjoy the well deserved rest.
