Monaleen 3-4 Ceapagh Rua 2-8

The U16’s first match of the championship was always going to be a close affair and so it proved with just 1 point separating the teams after a very entertaining game. Monaleen started brightly with 1-2 on the scoreboard before Ceapagh Rua got their first point. Caoimhe Lyons playing at left corner was causing the opposition plenty of problems. The Monaleen backs dominated in the first half and conceded only one point from play. Half time Monaleen led 1-4 to 0-4. The second half followed a similar pattern with Monaleen ahead by 5 points going into the last quarter. An injury to outstanding corner back Emer Nelson upset the balance of the defence enabling Ceapagh Rua to score 2 late goals for a single point victory. With only 1 sub available on the night the Monaleen  girls put up a skilful and determined performance throughout. A victory over Crecora is required from the next match to ensure passage to the semi-final.
