Beaufort U12 girls sponsored by Anthony Foley Decorating had their 2nd win in the County League on Tuesday evening when they played Dr. Crokes in Lewis Road, Killarney.
Crokes had the first point but it was cancelled out by a point from play from Holly Clifford after great work in defence by Katie Joy and Leanne Hayes. Crokes had a free to go ahead but again Beaufort’s Adele O’Brien was fouled and she scored the resultant free. Captain Leanne Hayes was playing very well at mid-field and set Adele O’Brien up for a goal. Ciara Cronin and Emma Kissane worked hard to keep a ball in on the side-line and set Holly Clifford up for a goal. Beaufort finished the half with a point from wing-forward Ciara Cronin again Leanne Hayes giving the telling pass. Hannah O’Connor, Lucy Breen were playing very well in defence as did Emily Kissane in goals who brought off a few great saves.
The 2nd half saw Dr. Crokes scoring a quick goal but 2 points, one a free from Holly Clifford settled Beaufort again. Dr. Crokes got a few points to cut the gap but strong running by players such as Leanne Hayes, Maeve Coleman-Horgan and Ciara Casey in particular kept the pressure on the home side and were unlucky not to score more but a fine individual goal by Adele O’Brien stretched Beaufort’s lead and left the full-time score Dr. Crokes 1-7 Beaufort 3-5.
