16/09/2015:  Kildysart U12 Ladies had an emphatic win this evening over Kilrush B team 5-5 to 1 point.  Kildysart had all the possession in the first half but were finding it hard to hit the target as many balls went just slightly wide of the mark.  The team kept the pressure on and kept the ball in Kilrush's half and were rewarded with a goal from Caitlin Casey about 5 minutes in to start off the scoring. In a good reflection of team work, all 5 forwards got on the score board during the match.  Kildysart doubled their lead when Aoife Cleary's raised the green flag - her first attempt was blocked but she collected her own rebound and promptly put it in the net.  The mid-field combo of Aoife McMahon and Emma Byrne were tireless in their efforts to keep the ball up the field.  The backs, fortified by Rachel O'Sullivan and Clara O'Grady, were called upon to ensure any attempts to score were thwarted. Points followed from Emily Leahy and Aoife McMahon and another goal by Caitlin Casey gave Kildysart a 2-2 to no score lead at the turn of the first quarter. The wing backs Aisling O'Connor, Emma Garry and Sarah Casey, playing in more of a mid field role, aided in the efforts to keep the ball in the Kilrush end. Abbey Hehir made an impact when she joined the half back line.  Kilrush were limited to only 1 point in the match and they scored this just before the break.  Score at the half Kildysart 3-2, Kilrush 0-1.

The second half saw the pacey Jade McNamara come on and win ball all around her. Alaina Casey started off the the second half with a goal in the opening minutes and this was promptly followed by Caitlin Casey's hat trick goal.  Eabha Garry and Aoife Ginnane who took over the forward roles and were feisty in their efforts to score.  Grace Scanlon and Katie Casey took up the mid field role and did not disappoint as they kept the ball fed to the forwards. Goalie Niamh Moloney kept her 2nd clean sheet in a row. Aiobhinn Clancy played a vital role in full forward in winning ball and feeding Grace Sheerer who popped over the last 3 points. Final score: Kildysart 5-5, Kilrush B 0-1. Next up is a home match v Crusheen.
