Springfield 3 v 2 Midleton
First game of the new season was away to Springfield and was a really close encounter from start to finish. Great credit to the girls for their first game since May and the way they dug in from the very start . We have a young side but very committed to each other and it promises to be an enjoyable year.
As expected Cobh settled a bit quicker and took the lead about mid way through the first half but then our 2 new centre forwards got in on the act and Ashling Harty got away down the right side and hit a deadly shot past their stranded keeper. Ciara was Captain for the day on her debut with the club and enjoyed her start up front. To be fair it was the solid back four of Lucy, Lauren, Ashling Murphy and Niamh supported by Shauna in goals that laid the platform for our opening half performance. Very few opportunities were given up as our midfield of Aoife, Ellen, Grace and Rachel worked tirelessly up and down the field. To add to that we had Roisin and Courtney come on and do their piece for the team before the break. It was needed as Aoife , Lucy and Ellen (great to have you back!) had come direct from completing the Ladies Mini Marthon.
Second half saw us compete like for like and could have easily taken the lead with some good chances created. But it was the home side who got ahead thanks to their substitute and they followed it up with a quick breakaway through the middle that we failed to stop and made it 3--1. But this was not the end for the girls as they created a terrific goal down the right which Ashling crossed for Ciara to finish to the corner. More chances were created and a strong penalty claim denied which could have got us a point but it was not to be. All in all a very competitive and enjoyable game and looks good for the season ahead.
Team: Shauna Horgan, Niamh Molloy, Ashling Murphy , Lauren Linehan, Lucy Horgan, Aoife Mitchell, Grace Cotter, Ellen Harty, Rachel O Sullivan, Ciara Carry(Capt), Ashling Harty, Roisin O Brien, Courtney English.
