Under 14 Girls Match

On Wednesday the 6th of November, our under 14 girls took on Castlerea in their 3rd outing of their league. Both sides played well considering the wet and windy conditions.

St. Nathy’s opened the game with a goal and a point in the first 5 minutes with a goal from Megan McCormack. Castlerea responded with a point within seconds.

Castlerea came back into the game just before half time, scoring a goal and a point.

The score at the short whistle was: Castlerea 1-2 vs. St Nathy’s 6-2.
