Thursday night April 27th, the Simonstown U16 ladies together with members of our Junior B panel played a challenge match against Wolfe Tone’s Junior B team in Gibbstown.
Simonstown ran out eventual winners on a scoreline of 2 - 17 to 6 - 02. At half time the north Navan girls lead by 1 - 12 to 1 - 01 but in the second half the Tone’s came roaring back into proceedings and hit the net on five occasions.
However, Simonstown rallied again and reeled off a series of scores with Niamh Donnelly particularly prolific with a range of scores from all angles and distances. This keenly contested outing was exactly what the U16 panel needed ahead of Sunday’s semi v Dunboyne while it also served the purpose of giving some of our slightly older girls on the Junior panel a chance to get some game time ahead of the impending Junior B championship.
Many thanks to Tom Lorton for refereeing for us and to the Tone’s for hosting. Well done to all!
