Kilmacud U11 Squad

Kilmacud U11 Squad       A full attendance from the girls as the U/11 Div 1 team sprung out of the blocks on Saturday (8th Oct 2011) in their last match of the group stages of the Cup competition to record the 3rd victory in a row. After 2 victories against Na Fianna and Fingallians, it was the turn of Templeogue Synge Street in P de Burca. After a nervous start the girls got into their stride and took the game to Synger. Defence was strong with excellent kick-outs from Kate O'Hogan. Karen Murphy lead the defensive unit and was ably supported by Sarah Coffey, Sara Leacy, Louisa Crowley, Kate Maher, Ella Gregory and Sinead Murphy. Defending was tight throughout with Synger scoring only 1-3 throughout the full game. Very impressive performances from our midfielders Simone Cotter and Sarah MacMahon gave the 'Crokettes' the drive to push on and deliver this important win which puts us on top of the group stages of the U/11 Div 1 Cup. The Crokettes ended up winners by a scoreline of 1-13 to 1-3 with the forward unit a consent worry for the Synger backs. The forward play from Sorcha Fitzgerald, Sinead O'Donoghue, Amy Rose Farrell, Aimee Lanigan, Emma O'Leary, Karen Duddy, Niamh Duffy and Rachel Wade was speedy, direct and lethal and the girls were helped by the scoring contributions from the twin towers (Simone and Sarah) in midfield.

The girls have now qualified for their 1st Semi Final which will be played on Saturday 15th Oct against Ballyboden St Enda's.
