Our U15 team were beaten in the Seandun final today against Douglas which was played at Castle Road. Despite the defeat our girls gave it everything they had and they left the field with their heads held high. Douglas knew they were in a game today and knew they were perhaps a little fortunate. We had plenty of possession, had numerous chances to score goals but couldn't convert. Credit to the Douglas goalkeeper who had a great game and it was no surprise she got the player of the match award. Douglas started well with three points from play. Anna got a nice point from play to get us off the mark. We were competing very well all over the pitch with Shannyn and Stephanie outstanding.  Within a five minute period Douglas got two goals one of which was a deflection. At H. T we were 2-4 to 0-1 down, but having played against a strong wind we were confident we could turn it around. Anna got another point early in the second half. Siofra was brought out of goal to corner forward and she put over a free and we were growing in confidence. Caroline was immense in the second half, cleaning up everything. Molly and Lucy worked really hard, creating chances but we couldn't put them away. Douglas had a good spell for ten minutes and in that time they scored two goals which hurt us badly. However we kept plugging away and Molly put over a lovely point from play. Final score was 4-8 to 0-4 but the score did not do us justice.  We were well in this game right to the finish and it was a pleasure to see the commitment of our team. Congrats to Douglas on their win, it was a great game played in the best of spirits. Brian Dillons are very proud of our team for the way they played and how they behaved themselves after a tough defeat. Captain Siofra speaking after the game said " We showed a lot of heart and we never gave up. I am very proud of how my team played". Coach's Niamh and Linda were incredibly proud today, knowing that the girls gave it everything they had. We will be gracious in defeat as Dillon's teams are traditionally, and we will come back next season more determined then ever. This team has a bright future.
