25/05/2013:  Kildysart Ladies U12 team got off to a perfect start in their first match in their first ever Championship with a big win over Kilrush B this morning in front of a large home crowd.  Kilrush played some good football and kept the game very competitive way into the second half.  Kildysart enjoyed only the smallest of margins at half time leading 2-1.  Roisin Donnellan opened the account for Kildysart with a point in the 2nd minute.  Kilrush followed a few minutes later with a point to level the match. A goal save by Ruth Finucane and excellent work by the backs lead by Chloe Sheehan, Sarah Casey and the tireless Sinéad Kelly, helped to keep Kilrush from further scores. Captain Amy Murphy put the Blues ahead with a well taken free and the score at the break was Kildysart 2 Kilrush 1.

Ruth Finucane came out of goals and joined Katie Donnellan in mid field and was an inspiration to the team as she started off the scoring for Kildysart in the 2nd half. Megan Sheehan put further distance between the sides and Rachel Conway's goal save helped preserve the Blues' lead. Fowards Eve Garry, Jacinta Casey-vice captain and Caitlin Casey helped to ensure the ball stayed in the Kilrush half of the pitch.  Roisin Donnellan's goal in the 34th minute created some space and spurred the girls on.  An excellent point by Katie Donnellan and a rocket to the net by Rachel Conway put Kildysart ahead 2-5 to 1 point and this was the final result. Subs Megan Cooney, Rachel O'Sullivan and new-comer Emma Byrne provided fresh legs to the team and played some very good football. KCDI
