Connacht Junior A Final

Glenamaddy CS   Vs    St.Attractas CS     23-01-2014

 

  • 20150123_124541
Glenamaddy Community School Junior Girls retained the Connaught A Junior title today for a remarkable 6th year in succession with a comfortable 7-20 to 0-02 score line over St.Attractas Community School. It was a fabulous performance from start to finish with every member of the panel making a telling contribution.

After a shaky opening 5 minutes in which St.Attractas had two clear cut goal chances which were expertly saved by our goalkeeper Mairead Kenny, Glenamaddy C.S proceeded to dominate the remainder of the match. With Ailish Morrissey at full forward and Rebecca Kelly at centre forward St.Attractas had no response to our speed, power, link up play and deadly finishing. Carla Kemp did an excellent job operating as a sweeper and Lynsey Noone was a constant menace to the opposition defenders. Our wing forwards of Evelyn Flanagan and Amy Ward worked tirelessly for the cause breaking up play and attacking at all available opportunities. Caoimhe Keaveney was the heartbeat of all that was good about the performance, driving forward and delivering top quality foot passes into the full forward line. Maeve Flanagan had an equally impressive performance, always available for the ball and laying off clever passes. Our wingbacks, captain Amy Keegan Conneely, and Shauna Mee had great games snuffing out all attacks that came their way. Chloe Costello dominated in the centre half back position and drove forward with intent. Our full back line of Leah Petit, Leanne Davis and Lauren Griffin had fine games and didn’t give their opposition an inch. Mairead Kenny was great in goal always finding a player with her kick outs and made some vital saves at important times of the game. Our subs Niamh Collins, Caliosa Keaveney, Aishling Ward and Rosin Lee all entered the game with twenty minutes remaining and made some telling contributions.

Credit goes to our wonderful management team of John Kennedy, Brigid Lyons, Patricia Keady, Mick Curtin and James Duignan who have dedicated endless hours of training and planning to make this success possible. Well done to all involved.

All Ireland Final

Glenamaddy CS  5-21 St. Paul's Bessbrook  8-9     (after extra time)

 

All Ireland Semi Final

Glenamaddy CS 3-17 St. Leo's, Carlow 2-5

Our Junior Girls qualified for the All Ireland Junior A Final on Friday 8th of March with a strong win over St. Leo's of Carlow. The match was played in Birr and the girls played against a strong breeze in the first half. The Carlow team got a goal early in the half which kept the pressure on Glenamaddy to stay in touch. However, the goal only seemed to increase the girls efforts as they seized control mid way through the half and win on to be ahead at half time on a scoreline of 10 to 1-3. The early exchanges in the second half yeilded a goal for either side with Glenamaddy holding a four point lead. However, one of St. Leos better players on the days suffered an injury and Glenamaddy never looked back. They pushed on for the remainder of the half scoring two more goals. The win was no more than they deserved as the had controlled the majority of the match. They now go on to the All Ireland Final in two weeks time where they play the Ulster Champions.

Connacht A Final

Glenamaddy CS 3-16 Mercy, Tuam 0-3

The girls qualified for the All-Ireland semi final on Friday 25th Jan. with a comprehensive win over their Tuam opponents. From the throw in Glenamaddy applied pressure to the Tuam girls getting on the score board early. The match was played in on a near water logged pitch in Miltown but this didn't prevent our girls from racking up an impressive score in such poor kicking conditions. Tuam could only manage one point in the opening half as our girls had 1-11 scored by the time the whistle blew. We continued where we left off in the second half adding two more goals with Tuam only getting two points.

The girls now play St.Leo's of Carlow in the semi-final in early March.

Connacht League:   Glenamaddy CS  5-12  Mercy Tuam  1-09 

                             Mercy Roscommon 0-04   Glenamaddy CS 4-14  

Season 2011/12

Third Connacht A Title in a row.

We had a very successful year starting on Friday the 16th of September when the junior girls had their first win over Coláiste Iognaid, Galway on a scoreline of 9-7 to 4-3. This was the first of many games leading up to the Connacht final with wins over Strokestown (5-15 to 3-04), Roscommon (3-09 to 0-07) and Mountbellew (6-13 to 3-03) which left us with a place in the Connacht final. Our opponents in the Connacht were Mercy Roscommon and after a very tough match we were victorious on a scoreline of 2 09 to 2 04.   

We played Loreto College, Omagh on Fri 16th March in Mullahoran, Co Cavan in the All Ireland Semi Final and after a tough physical match we were defeated 2-10 to 1-09. Disappointment all around but the girls are determined to give it a go again next year!!

A special thanks to Patricia Keady who helped to train us all year!
