Although Towers forfeited this game due to insufficient players turning up, (which incidentally this writer finds really annoying when one considers the work put in by mentors and others and how easy it is to text mentors if you cannot make it) the girls today were in fantastic form. They showed what they can do and they did it in STYLE starting off in a furious pace. Within minutes Aibí Ward scored a great goal with some help from Tunney and Walsh. No sooner had the Ballinteer keeper pucked the sliothar out when Towers attacked and Martha Kirk scored the first of six goals for her today. Kirk scored again within five minutes and Aisling Seery knocked a great free from thirty yards over the bar. After twenty minutes Kirk had scored two more goals and Towers went into the break 4-1 to 0-0.
The second half was again dominated by the young camogs with new girl Ceola Ní Fhearghaíl outstanding. She will be a great asset to the team. Another player returned was Saoirse Tunney who scored a goal within five minutes of the second half. Angie Mac fired a great free from the 45 into the back of the net. These girls were not prepared to sit on their laurels and when Ballinteer attacked there was some fine defending by Croia Byrne who is so dependable in the backline with help from Aisling Seery & Fiona Walsh who also had a good game. Tower’s midfield of Doran & Walsh controlled their positions throughout the game enabling the forwards to push ahead and Ward & Kirk slammed in another three goals as Towers finished with a great victory only to lose the game on a technicality. Towers other two Dublin players who were out today and when back next week will help to strengthen the team and we all should look forward to a new season after this blistering performance
