In what turned out to be a thrilling encounter, Corca Dhuibhne emerged victorious over Laune Rangers in their U16 girls’ football match at the An Ghaeltacht GAA Club’s grounds in Gallarus on Wednesday evening.  The game was played in lovely evening conditions, although there was a strong breeze blowing in from the Atlantic, which is to be expected with any pitch so exposed to the elements.  Corca Dhuibhne girls started very well and continued to dominate throughout the match. They were a physically bigger side and used their home advantage to perfection, making excellent use of the wind to gain an edge over their opponents.  Throughout the match, the Laune Rangers girls never gave up and put in a great effort.  However, Corca Dhuibhne’s dominance continued, and the Rangers girls were unable to break through their opponents’ strong defence.  Nonetheless, Laune Rangers can be proud of their tenacity and fighting spirit, which was on display until the final whistle.  The second half saw both teams put up a spirited performance, with some excellent displays of skill and determination. However, the Corca Dhuibhne girls held on to their lead, and in the end, emerged as comfortable winners. The match was a testament to the passion and commitment of the players, with both sides showcasing their skills and fighting spirit.  Overall, it was a well-contested game of football, and the players from both teams deserve credit for their efforts. It was a pleasure to witness such a display of passion and commitment to the sport, and we look forward to more exciting matches in the future.  Laune Rangers: Leah Russell, Amy Callan, Elmarie Lonergan, Sarah Patton, Megan Gillespie, Jacquelyn Owens, Emma O’Sullivan, Riadh O’Sullivan, Áine Hassett, Saoirse O’Shea, Sarah O’Brien, Sally McGillycuddy, Ellie Memery, Niamh O’Sullivan, Nicole McCormack, Aoife Fenton Toms, Kate McGeever, Deirdre O’Sullivan, Meadhbh Brennan.
