U-16 LGFA Championship - Aghaderg 5-10 Dundrum 4-07

Date Filed: 22 September 2022

Aghaderg U-16 LGFA girls recorded their first Championship match win in Ballyvarley this afternoon after a thrilling encounter against a very good Dundrum side.
Dundrum proved to be a very strong outfit with fine footballers all over the field, from the goalkeeper, who had a fantastic performance throughout, right through to number 15. They dominated much of the early encounters and at one stage towards the midpoint of the second half they led by 10 points.

However the reds kept chipping away, the girls never gave up and stuck with the game plan right to the very final whistle. The performance of the team in the last 15 minutes was incredible. Out the field the team challenged for every ball and started to really disrupt the Dundrum play. We then successfully moved the ball forward at speed and Aghaderg racked up 5-01 to no score in that period; both Cara and Clodagh slotted home 2 goals, Georgia popped up with a goal and Olivia finished an excellent point in a very crowded area.

The game finished 5-10 to 4-07, in a score line that flatters to deceive.

The management team is really proud of the fight and determination that was shown by the girls today. With that never say die attitude they will be a match for any team in this Championship. We are really looking forward to the next round.
