Our u12 Cilles girls were in action on Saturday august 19th in the u12 division 6 final replay V Dunboyne. It was a fantastic match in which both teams gave 100% and put some amazing football on display for the big crowd in attendance, so first of all I’d like to thank both sets of girls for entertaining us all with great play and sportsmanship throughout the match.
The game started with 12 v 12 as Dunboyne only had 12 players which left us with some adjustments to our team.
The first quarter Cilles came out flying with some great play and passing and looked in control, however as the quarter ended we only had a 2 point lead.
2nd quarter starts and Cilles look great again but Dunboyne are not going away and show great heart to keep manners on us but we do extend or lead to 4 points and the end of the 2nd quarter.
3rd quarter, Dunboyne come out flying and with early scores for the first time take the lead by 1point, luckily enough our girls keep calm and get the game plan back in order. We scored a cracker of a goal late on and took a 2 point lead into the last quarter.
4th quarter kicks off with both teams looking nervous but it’s Dunboyne doing the attacking and Cilles on the back foot. Suddenly Cilles break the play down and attack themselves and finish with a great point to extend our lead to 3pts. The clock is ticking and Dunboyne run out of time. The ref blows up and Cilles are crowned champions. Nothing more than they deserve as they’ve been working so hard throughout the year and as we all know, hard work pays off.
