AGB U12 Div1 girls were out in championship action against Baltinglass on Thursday the 28th of August. Playing against the wind in the first half, they came up against a much stronger Baltinglass side. Then, 5 minutes into the half Morrigan Canavan had to be taken off due to injury which left AGB with just 14 players. Baltinglass took their scores and would’ve been way ahead if it wasn’t for Georgia’s great defending and Lucy’s great goalkeeping. Score at half time was 2-6 to 0-0 in favour of Baltinglass. The AGB girls came out fighting in the second half and took their scoring chances. They kept Baltinglass to one point in the second half. Final score Baltinglass 2-7 AGB 1-3. Well done girls! The Shield Semi-Final against St. Nicks is next up.
