Under 9 Girls face local rivals on home turf

By on June 30, 2015

Round Towers under 9 girls took on Lucan Sarsfields on the Monastery Road on Sunday June 21st,

Match report by Maria Shannon.


Passion and determination, that’s what the Towers girls showed in this local derby against our neighbours from Lucan.

It was a fresh Sunday morning but the sun did shine as we played against two Sarfields teams that we’ve faced a few times before.

Our girls have been working on their defensive skills and it showed, some great shielding, battling for the ball and incredible blocking to try and deny their opposition.

They were getting balls up to their midfield and forward lines and there were some great attempts at goal with some brilliant points.

We’ve been working on skill points too like two hand blocks and hand-pass point scoring and the girls did those when the opportunity arose.

Well done girls, keep up the good work.

Thanks to the mums and dads who were the extra voice on the sidelines(and providing support when there were a few injuries)
