Knockaderry 4-8 Monaleen 2-7

Monaleen travelled to Knockaderry – tournament favourites – for Round 2 of the U16 league. Despite missing some key players there was optimism that a win was possible. An early Caoimhe Lyons goal gave Monaleen the lead but in a very closely fought match Knockaderry led by 3 points at the break. Accurate free taking from Niamh Doyle and some great performances notably from Megan O Mara in midfield kept Monaleen in touch but the goals didn’t come and a late score from the home side ensured the victory. Monaleen have a home QF next Friday as group runners up but will have a tougher passage to the final following this result.

Team: Claire Kelly; Grainne Fullen; Laura Enright; Niamh Doyle(0-5);Nora Farrell;  Aoife Hogan; Megan O Meara; Ciara Wiley; Eileen Russell (capt.); Sinead Quinn; Aishling Doyle; Laura Phelan ;Laura Griffin & Caoimhe Lyons (2-2).
