Fillies match round up 03/11/2013
U14 1st Year Purple 2 Railway 1
Goal scorers: Sarah O’ Dea (x2)
IT was a well battled first half with very even possession between the two. There were some great shots from Laura, Sarah and Lucy but failed to net. After some time we found ourselves 1-0 down by a superb 1 touch shot from Railway. After some words from captain Amy Elliott, spirits were lifted and we answered them back with a scrambled goal from Sarah O’ Dea just before half time.
After the half time team talk the possession was all with Pembroke, Railway were barely getting a look in. The quick touch passing was improved also. In the dire minutes of the game we saw ourselves defending a short corner, it was cleared well by Sarah Poole, who made lovely pass to Georgia who riffled the ball up the line straight onto Loren’s stick, dribbling into the D the path was open but with quick thinking Loren unselfishly squared the ball to Sarah O’D who swept home the victory as the whistle was blown straight after.
Well done to everyone. Again, thanks to Marc Elliot for umpiring, hoping Amy’s head is not too sore!!

1st Year Pink 10 Loreto 0
Unfortunately, Loreto could not field a team this week, so the Pembroke Pinks had to settle for a friendly match. The girls used the situation to their advantage, however, putting a lot of their new skills into practice. The girls worked well, and maintained their concentration throughout. The passing and communication improved throughout the match. The attacking skills were definitely on show, with Molly earning herself the title of top-scorer!
The Pinks also welcomed Louise as their goalie this week, Louise made some great saves. Many thanks go to Sophie, Anna, Eleanor and Emily (McCarthy) for agreeing to play with the Loreto squad who we’re missing some players. You all really impressed the Loreto coach, and they were very grateful for your kindness. Man of the Match goes to Emily McCarthy for her excellent defensive and offensive skills!
We also wish Eleanor a quick recovery from her injury. Overall, it was a good performance from the ladies and they walked away with a 10-0 win. Well done to all the goalscorers!

U16 Red 6 Hermes 0
The match started and Pembroke had plenty of chances to score but sadly missed. Ten minutes into the first half we got the first goal scored by Hilary McKenna Long. It was a great goal. Shortly after Finola scored the next goal with a great shot. A few minutes later the half time whistle blew.
At the second half we started off strong and scored another goal from Hilary so it was 3-0. Hermes came back strong but didn’t get down to our half of the pitch as we had scored another goal from Claudia which was an amazing goal! Soon after Ellen scored another goal out of a short corner so then it was 5-0. After Hermes tip off we quickly got the possession back and moved the ball up to pitch to Hermes ‘D’ and Claudia scored another goal.
The final score was 6-0 and another good match and win for the Pembroke purple mean machine.

Rosemary MacDonald and Kate Gallagher scored cracking goals near the end of the game to finish it 7-0.
