But it wasn't all cahir's way when from the kick off peake villa put some good play together to beat Emma Maher making the half time score 3-1. 2nd half started with cahir on the back foot but Emma in goals pulling off great saves from a few 1v1's . cahir added to the score through Erin who ran the villa defence ragged all game and got her well deserved goal.

Duneske saw a great display of commitment today as the cahir u14 team took on kilenaule with only a team of 9 players against 11. The girls saw themselves down 1-0 in the first 16 minutes of the match with a goal from kilenaule, but counter attacked just 2 minutes later by a great assist from Emily Kirby who with skill and speed created a brilliant opportunity for Lilly Brown to score an equalizing goal in the 18th minute. Cahir went on to stay level throughout the first half with great performances by Aoife O Neill, Holly Keating, Ava Conway and Katie O Conner who with determination kept fighting at every opportunity to defend our goal keeper Abbey Noonan. In the second half the girls were unfortunate when kilenaule scored again in the 55th minute of the game but never gave up with Niamh Costigan flying around the pitch the help out where ever she could. Well done girls ye played a great game and should be proud.
