Kilmore reach Under-12 finals

FIVE TEAMS from the schoolgirls' league competed in the Leinster Under-12 finals in the Oscar Traynor Complex on Saturday and, after a long day of very intense games, Kilmore United qualified for the national finals in the AUL on Sunday next.

Wins over Bailieborough, Trim Celtic and Bridge Rovers as well as a draw with Shelbourne of Dublin saw Kilmore qualify as runners-up in their group, with Becky Furlong and Cora Miller both excelling.

Ballindaggin and Shelbourne also both did very well, finishing level on points in their group, with Ballindaggin being graded higher as they had won the game between them 1-0. However, there was still confusion as to whether Ballindaggin had done enough to quailfy for the national finals and it probably won't be known until midweek.

Forth Celtic and Bridge Rovers also competed and although they were not in contention for a place in the national finals, both sides put in creditable performances and will have learned from the experience.
