In the first round of the Championship against Duffry Rovers last night 3-8 to 0-1. Next game after Feile on Monday 15th July away to Castletown at 7.30 pm.
Ibars girls got off to a great start with a point from play from Jessie in the second minute, Jessie followed with another point in the tenth minute, Zoe then scored a point from a free. Duffry backs were doing there best to keep the Ibars at bay, but Ibars were too strong, the next score followed a ’30 taken by Zoe, caught by Jessie scoring a point. Mikaela scored the next point from a ’30 taken by Zoe. Zoe lobbed in the next point, the next score followed after a lovely pass from Eleanor to Jessie with a fantastic goal leaving the half-time score at 1-6 to 0-0. Jessie opened the second half with a point, shortly after Mikaela scored a fantastic goal, some changes were made by the mentors, to give girls a game. Siobhan followed with a lovely point from play, and Mikaela completed the scoring with a goal, leaving the final score 3-8 to 0-1. It was a great start to the Championship, well done to all and the mentors, Mick, John and Mary.
