The 16 girls who play in the first division, travelled to Passage to play them under lights on Sunday night. Passage compete in the premier division and are unbeaten. The game started at a very high tempo pace and Blarney were soon one up compliments of Amy Corkery. Passage replied with a great goal. Their 2nd one was direct from a corner and we conceded a penalty which they converted with a minute to go to half time making it 3-1 to Passage at half time. This score didn’t reflect the work rate, the girls were playing out of their skins. We were facing an uphill battle in the 2nd half but what a battle!!! Liz O’ Connor made it 3-2 after 10 minutes  and 5 minutes later, Ava Buckley with the goal of the game, took a touch and vollied the ball over the head of the keeper from 25 yards out. Game on – 3 all!!! With 10 minutes to go, Edel O’ Raw put a beautiful corner into the box which Katie Buckley converted, 4-3 to Blarney. This was a fantastic team effort but special mention for the 4 defenders Amy Walsh, Ella O’ Sullivan,  Ciara Doyle and Edel who were outstanding and held them goalless in the 2nd half , while under savage pressure right to the final whistle. Fantastic result girls, well done
