U14 Ladies Division 3 East Kerry Final Beaufort Vs. Dr. Croke’s

Beaufort 4-09  Vs. Dr. Croke’s 1-03

 

With All Ireland finals to be lost and won these girls had a final of their own to win with the training exhausted all the hard work done and still 60 minutes of football to play before freedom.
The game started with Crokes working hard and well up for the game. They closed down Beauforts play and invited them into hard challenges in the early stages Jade Potts looking strong early in the game fielding high balls with ease and carrying the game to Beaufort pointed a free in the 2nd.
Saoirse Dorrian adding a typical Beaufort goal on the 5th while Potts put over a free on the 8th and kicking a fine point from play on the 9th, her former Kerry team mate Leanne Hayes was taking no cheek from her answering with a free of her own on the 9th and a well worked point on the 10th, Saoirse Dorrian recycled the ball when hit hard by the Crokes defence to create a point for Emma Kissane on the 11th. A lot of the Crokes play going through Potts and comfortable on the ball she found the net on the 15th to level the game but Hayes popped up again on the 20th with the ball well won in the Beaufort defence and well worked forward when Leanne broke through it looked like she would find the net but met a hard challenge which left Holly Powers on the ground one would think it should be a penalty but a free was awarded Saoirse Dorrian placed it over the bar to give Beaufort a narrow 1point lead at half time. 1-4 to 1-3.
Lucky to be a head in the half and work to be done the dressing room could be interesting, energy levels raised and a reminder of the way they could play and a distinct relay on stopping Crokes playing, spread the ball wide breaks the tackle and away you go. Saoirse Dorrian taking a hard knock late in the first half still a bit shook narrowly kicking a free wide on the 5th Kerry might have David Clifford but we have Holly Clifford and her ability to win the ball hold up the play, find a pass, she kicked two well wanted points in the 6th and 7th before Hayes popped up with a well worker goal in the 12th. Beaufort were starting to play as they do with free flowing football support play and defending until death they took control of the game forced every play of the half isolating key Crakes players scores were going to come. Emily Kissane through on goal on the 15th put the ball over the crossbar .As of usual Beaufort forcing the Crokes kick out winning it and pushing forward Holly Clifford placed a fine finish to the net. Hayes and Dorrian found the target in the 20th and the 22nd with two well worked points. Beaufort were still pushing forward and looking dangerous the ball being well worked with a series of great passing moves the ball was blasted to the net by Emma kissane to finish the Beaufort scoring. Unfortunately Dr Crokes did not score in the half it wasn’t for their hard work but Beaufort fitness and ball work was hard to handle over the last few weeks.
Juillette Murphy collected the trophy from David Randles on behalf of the East Kerry Board and was not found short of a few words.

U14 Ladies County League Final – Fossa Vs. Beaufort

Fossa 2-06 to Beaufort 5-11
All the credits go to the Beaufort U14 girls as their hard work, determination ability to listen and learn has won them this long waited County League Final against Fossa on Thursday, 31st August.
On the last meeting the spoils were shared 6-5 a piece, but the delay of the final meant that Beauforts Kerry star Leanne Hayes was back to full fitness after a nasty shoulder injury played havoc to her early days in a Kerry jersey.  Beaufort started brightly putting over 6 points in the first 18 minutes, Fossa added 2 point of their own, then on 23rd and 24ft minute we saw the best of Fossa when they added 2-1 to take a 3pt lead now the Fossa crowed were off their seats little did they know we still had 36 minutes to play the seats were quickly filled again when the Beauforts girls domance, pressure and attacking ability won out they finished the half with two well finished move resulting in goals for M C Horgan and S Dorrian.
The half time score left Beaufort ahead by three points.
While the Beaufort girls remained focused throughout the half time break the main objective was to finish out the game in the first 10 minutes of the second half and continue the momentum they certainly did goals  coming inside the 1st minutes from M C Horgan and S Dorrian which were well worked and increased Beauforts attacking ability. Leanne Hayes added 2 points, M Kissane comfortably find the target before Hayes struck the candle quencher on the 14th after a fine passage of play rattling the net for Beauforts fifth goal.  With Beauforts backs working tirelessly throughout the evening soaking up all of Fossa attacks H O’Connor marshalling D O’Brien well throughout the game, J Murphy was inspirational for the Beaufort defence her sister Kate and M Kissane working very hard to break down any Fossa attack.
Fossa were not willing to give up with D O’Brien S Dennehy  and A Burke working hard to breach the Beaufort defence find their first score of the half on the 14th a goal bound shot was well saved by O’ Brien and pushed over the bar Fossa added two more well taken points on the 15th and breached the Beaufort defence on the 20th and Beaufort not willing to give up conceded a penalty which was well saved by O’Brien in the Beaufort goal.The game well over as a contest at this stage Beaufort finished out with two well taken points from Meadhbh Kissane and Emma Kissane on the 25th minute.
A well deserved win for a hard working bunch of girls, The hooter were blowing and lights flashing from Fossa  all the way back to Beaufort village where the girls were treated to some finger food in the Inbetween Bar with a festive atmosphere.
