Under 8’s Take on Local Rivals Bredagh at Cherryvale
On Friday evening, our under eight girls took the short trip to Cherryvale to take on old rivals Bredagh. With a panel of 21 we fielded two evenly matched teams, the Ogs and the Gaels. Captains for the evenings were Blanaid and Evie.
There was a great turn out and support from parents who took to the touch lines to cheer on the girls. Positions were filled and the refs made the throw ins in 2 simultaneous games. The games were made up of 3 10 minute periods, with 2 full matches played by all girls with real determination. The supporters were treated to some great shooting, tackles, blocks from all, a great off the line save from Caitriona. The posts took a battering with Evie in particular seeing some great efforts come back off the woodwork. There were some superb goals, a great one from Evie who missed the post this time! A number of girls took points well. Both Carryduff teams played well and won their matches. The teams lined up for the traditional handshake and all 21 girls went home with a smile on their faces having had a lot of fun with real team spirit.
