Community Games U12 victory for Castlebridge/Crossabeg Girls

 Congratulations to the Girls and mentors of Castlebridge/Crossabeg  on winning the U12 Community Games girls Football title

 The Community Games U12 girls football final saw Castlebridge/Crossabeg meet Bree/Davidstown. Castlebridge/Crossabeg had beaten Kilmore in the first round and Clonard in the semi-final to gain their place in the final, while Bree/Davidstown having a Bye in the first round had beaten Tintern in their semi-final.

Both teams began with great determination from the first whistle but it was Castlebridge/Crossabeg who got the first score with a great point from Megan Power.

Amy Banville added another point to their score line minutes later before Bree/Davidstown managed to get the ball through the Castlebridge/Crossabeg defence and score their first goal. Bree went on to score a further 1-4 in the first half with Castlebridge/Crossabeg only managing to reply with a point from Louise Murphy and a goal from Gemma Fox leaving the half-time score 2-4 to 1-3 in favour of Bree/Davidstown. The second-half was a much more one-sided affair with Castlebridge/Crossabeg having made some changes in their line out gaining most of the play. The soon converted their ball position to a score and although Bree/Davidatown fought back they couldn’t manage to get the ball past the Castlebridge half-back line where Alice Mahon excelled having moved out from full back at half-time. Castlebridge/Crossabeg had a number of scoring opportunities as the game continued and although they had a few wides, they scored 2 well taken goals, one form Noeleen Shanahan and the other from Amy Banville to finish the game as County Champions on a score of 3-4 to 2-4.
