Our U14 girls played their Division 1 Shield Final in Springfield against Mullingar Shamrocks on Sunday in windy conditions. Shandonagh got off to a great start and after a blistering first half display with some brilliant team play we were 2-7 to 1-2 up at half time. Shamrocks came right back at us in the second half with the aid of a strong breeze & crashed in 2 goals which put them right back in the game. We struggled for long periods in the second half and got it hard to get the ball out of our own half and unfortunately the game finished with a one-point loss for Shandonagh 2-11 to Shamrocks 3-9.
Gordon Carey would like to thank the girls for all their hard work & commitment all season, also fellow coaches Aishling Fry & Frank Ganly & in particular Seamus Killian, who had the girls the fittest they have ever been.
