Girls Football Finals in Tralee   15/06/2019

Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Chiarraí  Girls Football Finals


Four of the Girls Allianz Cumann na mBunscol football finals were played  in perfect underfoot conditions in Austin Stacks Park.The westerly wind affected the pattern of the opening game but not even the heavy mist which had descended for the final game could dampen the spirit, endeavour and enthusiasm of these young girls who fought with honest right to the final whistle in search of that elusive Allianz Cumann na mBunscol title for their respective schools. With multi All Ireland medal winner Mary Jo Curran running the line for her school they avenged last year’s result to claim the title. Also on show on Thursday evening were the daughters of All Ireland winning captains from 1997, 2000 and 2004 as they along with all of their respective team mates entertained us with some brilliant passages of football. The finals produced some excellent passages of team play, brilliant movement, support play, excellent fielding and defending and some outstanding shooting and shot selection. Well done to all girls and to their respective teachers in their schools.

Knockanes  NS4-11 Scoil Naomh Eirc 0-8

In the opening final Knockanes elected to play with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening half and this proved decisive as they launched attack after attack so effectively kill off the game in this half as this young Scoil Naomh Eirc team found it difficult to claim possession from their own kick outs.The Knockanes charge was led by Primary Game player Aoibhinn Gleeson and captain Katie O Connor Dennehy who was unmarkable on the day as they drove forward and supplied the telling passes to their team mates who notched up the scores. Naomh Eirc improved in the second half with strong performances from Beth Ní Bhambaire, Hannah Nic Gearailt and though they kicked a series of points they were unable to penetrate the Knockanes defence for the much needed goals ach táin cinnte go mbeidh siad ar ais.

 Allianz Cumann na mBunscol 4/5 teacher Final.

Glenbeigh NS 3-3: Scartaglen NS 1-7

This was a very entertaining final.  Glenbeigh NS  playing with the wind were first off the mark with a goal from their prolific corner forward Maggie Quirke. Scartaglen NS then took control kicking three unanswered points. Maggie Quirke got in for her and her side’s second goal before Naoise Burke responded in kind for Scartaglen to leave the schools tied at the short whistle 2-0 to 1-3.

The second half was again tit-for-tat with Naoise Burke, Seodhla O’ Donovan and Maggie Quirke driving Glenbeigh on. Mary Kate Smith scored the all-important goal for the black and amber and in spite of the best efforts of Scartaglen’s Charlie O’ Keefe in goals, Tara Kerin in defence and Edel O’ Donoghue in attack it was to be Glenbeigh’s day as they held out on a final scoreline of 3-3 to 1-7.

Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Urban Shield Final.

Moyderwell NS 5-8: Spa NS 2-1

Moyderwell opened the scoring with a great point from their outstanding midfielder Aoibhín O’ Connor McCarthy. Grace Hamilton goaled for Spa but from here on it was all Moyderwell as they took advantage of the strong breeze with Aoibhínn O’ Connor McCarthy, the impressive Mollie Duggan and the industrious Liza O’ Shea all raising the green flag. A second goal for Hamilton gave Spa hope at half-time trailing 4-5 to 2-0.

As conditions deteriorated in the second half, scores were hard to come by. The victors kept their opponents at bay thanks in part to their tough tackling defender Lauren Doody. Sophie Hassett and co tried hard to the end for Spa but Moyderwell were the better team winning out by 5-8 to 2-1.

Gaelscoil Aogáin 4-4 Scoil Náisiúnta an Fhossaidh 1-4 

In our fourth final of the afternoon the word four is very appropriate as it was the four goals finished to the net by number fourteen for Gaelscoil which determined the outcome of this Allianz Cumann an mBunscol Div. 2 Urban final. Fossa the champions who had comprehensively defeated all teams on route to this final were put on the back foot from the throw in by the physically stronger Gaelscoil Aogáin girls who had Trojan workers in every line of the pitch. Erin Ní Chonchúir opened the scoring with a goal and a point and Seána Nic Uilcím landed her first goal to give Aogáin an early lead. With Seodhla Colleran in fine form the fossa girls settled and Brooke Lynch was at the end of a good move to bang to the net. However this sparked an instant response from the Aogáin girls and through inspiring full forward they landed a further 3-3 to lead 4-4 to 1-0 at the break. Hazel de Búrca, Sarah Ní Scannláin, Holly Ní hÓráin and Amy NÍ Churtáin were outstanding for the winner’s throughtout. Though Fossa held their opponents scoreless in the second half and landed four well earned points, three from the hard working a elusive forward Elizabeth Coffey and one Lucy O Sullivan they simply couldn’t unlock a stubborn Aogáin defence for the much needed goals. This was a highly competitive and entertaining game with possession about equally devided but the four goal scoring spree from Aogáin sealed the deal.
