U18 Match Vs Douglas

posted 6 May 2012, 13:53 by Pro Killeagh Camogie
Our U18 team played their second U18 league game at home to Douglas during the week and what a game it turned out to be.
Douglas opened the scoring with a point, quickly replied to by a well taken 45 from Leah McEvoy. Aishling Landers quick action had the ball to the back of the net to put us ahead. There was great pressure on our back line, Niamh O Farrell, Ellen Beniam and Zoe McEvoy. There were some great saves from Jessie Swayne in goal but despite all their great efforts Douglas managed to pick off four more points before half time to leave the half time score Douglas 5pts and Killeagh 1-1.
Douglas goaled immediately on the restart and we looked to be in real trouble. The introduction of Shauna Landers and Aoife Walsh lifted our game immensely. Ciara Daly, Hannah Looney and Jessica Tracey were working very hard and we hoped it would be rewarded and yes it was with a terrific shot by Shauna was doubled on by Aishling and it was goal on. Douglas pointed  and it was all to play for now. The tension on the line was mighty. Hannah had to lovely points and we hoped it was going to be our night. Sadly time ran out and we were beaten 1-7 to 2-3. A fantastic effort by all our girls and we look forward to our next game with Inniscarra.
