Our Under 13 girls started their campaign for the year on Thursday evening when they played against Shinrone in Kinnitty. The girls put in an excellent performance and ran out winners on a scoreline of 2-8 to 1-8
Just 36 hours later the girls were travelling to Tullamore on Saturday morning for their next match and on arrival in Tullamore it was evident that Autumn is well and truly with us with fog surrounding the O'Brien Park pitch but as the girls went through their warm up the fog had cleared and the match got underway. From the outset it was evident that Tullamore had a team that compromised of older players and this was reflected in the early scoring when Tullamore owned the scoring in the first half, hitting 1-4 to 0-0. Despite this the Kinnitty girls were trying their hardest and playing some good camogie and were unlucky not to find the net on a couple of occasions.
Into the second half and while Tullamore hit their second goal, Aoibhe Longworth hit over a well taken point for our girls. Tullamore added another couple of points before Kinnitty got a well deserved goal late on when Aoibhe bundled the ball over the line. The final score of the game came from Amber Mortimer who hit over a well taken point to leave the final score reading Tullamore 2-6, Kinnitty 1-2
