U16 Girl’s Football Game Vs Carrigallen


Report by Orla McWeeney 

The Mohill Community College U16 Girls had a well earned win against Carrigallen on Wednesday the 12th of October. 

The girls opened the first half by putting over a few handy points with the help of Saoirse Davis on frees. Carrigallen retaliated but that didn’t stop the Mohill girls. The full back line of Chloe and Orla McWeeney and Christine Earley managed to get multiple turn overs and kept the ball out of their goal and with the help of Katie Charles and Maia Cunningham kept the ball up the field.  Charles scored a goal from a great run that came off a brilliant kickout from Aoibhlinn Maxwell.

Leona and Sarah Reynolds together with Zara Sheehan did a colossal amount of work throughout the game. The defenders weren’t the only ones keeping the opposition on their toes, as the half forward line of Erin McGirl, Sarah O’Leary and Emily Gannon made excellent runs, getting a lot of ball that came their way. Eimear Keville and Elana Kilrane made a big impact in the full forward line, as they won multiple frees and executed excellent passes. At half time Mohill led by two points. 

The girls came back on the field and worked very hard in the first fifteen minutes. Leona Reynolds, in midfield, cleaned up a lot of spill ball. Substitutions of Niamh McNabola and Laura McNabola gave Mohill the extra boost of energy and legs to keep up the scoring spree with Eimear Keville and Sarah Reynolds both scoring goals. Megan Molloy made a significant impact when she came on as a sub. and Emma Maxwell, another substitution, finished the game with a last minute goal to finish the game 7 15 to 2 7. 

Ms Denise Fitzpatrick Hargaden’s U16 girls will now face Drunkeeran on the 10th of November.
