Super win today Girls. Fighting spirit to make a great comeback in the 2nd half.Ten points down at one stage the Naomh Muire ladies produced a very spirited comeback to win by 5 points in their first home league match against Kilcar in the Banks at noon today. After being well beaten last week, Naomh Muire started of sluggish and gave away two soft early goals although they were enjoying lots of early possession. Kilcar took full advantage and ran into a ten point lead and were looking like they would add to this.
Several second half substitutions however brought great life into the Naomh Muire attack and before long they had brought the game back to 6 points. Then with a big effort by all on the field, they scored three great points from play and a goal to draw level before taking complete control against a nifty Kilcar side....and in the end Naomh Muire won well.
The ladies side is very young this year and even features several of the Under 14s from last years Donegal winning side. Therefore this will give them confidence....they will only improve as they play more together. Today was a great day for all the team, who never showed any sign of panic and stuck to the task at hand.. Some wise heads mixed with young girls, this team is going in the right direction. Supporters gave the team a great boost to keep them plugging away. Top displays from Moya McGurk, Tara O'Donnell and Mide Ni Bhaoill. Well done to all involved. Well done Ladies.
