Beann Eadair 1-2
The successful weekend continued on Sunday when the Under 14 girls recorded a very good victory over Beann Eadair. This was a very good performance by the girls and despite an early threat from the opposition when Katie Flanagan made an outstanding save and by the half time break the girls had only conceded 1 point to the Howth girls. In the second half the Naomh Mearnog girls faced a very stiff breeze and they showed great control and composure to very quickly put the game beyond reach and advance to the final. This was a very good team performance and their work in training is showing results.
