U12 Division 1A Championship Semi-Final
Clann na nGael Lions 1-16 Padraig Pearses Lions 1-4
Clann qualified for their 3rd County Final in a row with a good victory over neighbours Padraig Pearses in Woodmount on Friday evening last. Clann suffered a early set back with the loss of centre-back Sarah O'Sullivan through injury and took a while to settle. Indeed they trailed by a point at half-time but turned in a tremendous second half performance scoring 1-11 and only conceding a point. When the defence settled they were excellent, while midfield worked tirelessly throughout and there was some brilliant point scoring from the forwards. They now meet a Boyle side in the final who are also undefeated in the campaign and Clann know they have plenty to do to complete the three-in -a row, but the management team of Peter Shine and Cathriona Meehan will not be resting on their laurels.
Panel: Carol Griffin, Aoife Harte, Leanne Ward, Grainne O’Neill, Renee Naughton, Sarah O’Sullivan, Orla Shine, Christine Conway 0-1, Shauna Connell, Shauna Bannon 0-1, Nicole Meehan 0-2, Therese Lennon 0-4, Caoimhe Lennon 0-5, Claire Murray 1-3, Kirsten McCormack, Sarah Ward, Sarah Connaughton, Damilola Omotosho, Valerie Dyiki, Lauren McDonnell, Lucy Dowling.
