Junior team

Courcey Rovers……0-13


Mallow played a hugely entertaining game in their final championship match on Tuesday evening last in Ballinaspittle. The first few minutes were played at a great pace but it was not long before Courcey Rovers threw the first punch and got a point on the board. Mallow’s Jenny Luddy responded by putting over a point of her own. Courcey Rovers dominated the next few minutes and added a few more points to the score board. Mallow rolled with the punches and fought tooth and nail for every ball. They were able to secure a few more points but were trailing by 7 points at half time.

Courcey Rovers started the second half as they ended the first and put over 3 points in the first few minutes. Mallow needed a response and when push came to shove it was Mallow’s defender Deidre McCarthy who stepped up, got her head in the game and put up a good fight for the Mallow side. Mallow played well in patches but it was Courcey Rovers who had the upper hand. Hats off to keeper Karen Finnegan who had a commanding yet calming presence on the pitch when needed. The gloves were off and there was no holding back Jenny Luddy’s scoring ability. Bridget Barton was brought on and it was she who stole the show with her kicking skills in the end. Along with Niamh O’Regan they both fought to the bitter end. The Mallow girls gave it their all but the gap was just too big
