This weekend saw double local derby action; Naas v Newbridge u14s Semi Finals
#1 of West Leinster cup took place at 12:30 in Newbridge College where our 1st year team won their game 3-0. The skills displayed by both teams were absolutely fantastic, a credit to themselves and their coaches! Newbridge were under pressure all the way through by Naas, but fought extremely hard to the very end which was reflected in the scoreline. A massive congrats to Emma & Caoimhe and of course the girls!
Semi final #2 took place at 1:30 in Old Caragh Road where the 2nd year teams fought it out for the last spot in the final. An absolutely smashing game by both teams with just the smallest of touches at the back post bagging the win for Naas 1 - Newbridge 0. This was a very high standard game and thrilling to watch. Newbridge played a very exciting and expansive game, the girls expressed their love of the game in a very sporting and good natured manner, pushing naas back into their own half for much if the 2nd half and were very unlucky not to advance further in the competition. Lots of future talent in display, some I'm sure will be real contenders for a senior team place next season. Well done and hard luck to Orla and the girls.
Today's results mean a Naas vs Newbridge final!! (Details to follow)
