Last Wednesday (7th May) the O'Loughlins under 10's started off their season with an away fixture against Danesfort. The friendly game was played in great spirit and the girls in green did themselves proud. In the first half Danesfort started strongly and as time went on, the pressure they built up led to scores. While O'Loughlins never really threatened the goal area in the half, some excellent play in the midfield prevented the game from getting away from them. Faye Fennelly, Grace Sheridan and Eva Prendergast let Danesfort have nothing easy. Emma Flyson White defended very well and Ava O'Grady and Ava Vaughan contributed very well. In the second half other players got to shine with some positional changes and the fact that Danesfort made changes of their own. Abby Ware and Tara O'Keeffe made and impact on the goal and the forward line for different periods. Riona Crowley was excellent for finding space to drive the ball either into the goal or into the forwards. Sinead Dowling, Leah Hanrahan and Emma Butler were busier in the second half too. Overall, it was a good first outing and O'Loughlins may have done enough in the 2nd half to sneak a win.
