VALS V ROCKCHAPEL.
Dromtariffe was the venue for the eagerly awaited
senior ladies semi-final between St Vals and Rockchapel. Both teams were evenly
matched playing good football for periods of the game however it was Val's failure
to convert their opportunities into scores that was to be their undoing.
The second half was frustrating from a Val's point of view when once again they played well however could not produce the scores. Rockchapel on the other hand took their scores well. By the 12th minute Rockchapel had 3 points on the board compared to Vals one. By the 20th minute the game was as good as over as a contest. Regina Curtain got her second goal of the game. The Vals goalie Leona Cotter did superbly to save a rasper of a shot but could do nothing about the rebound. The score now read 2-7 to 3 points to Rockchapel. In the last ten minutes the teams exchanged points and though Vals battled hard till the end the score ended 2-8 to Rockchapel 4 points to Vals. Rockchapel now go on to play Doughamore in the ladies senior county final
VALS V VALLEY ROVERS.
VALS V ROSSCARBERY.
Vals started well and had clocked up a considerable lead by half time. Vals played well however can thank the slippery conditions for the considerable margin at half time. The second half was a completely different affair. Rosscarbery came out with all guns blazing and really put it up to the Vals girls. Three consecutive goals by the Rosscarbery girls really put the pressure on. However the Vals girls showed immense character, they managed to keep their head and luckily for them came away with a two-goal victory. The final score being 5-8 to Vals 3-8 to Rosscarbery. The outcome could have been a lot different if the Rosscarbery girls had played to the same standard as they played in the second half. However the Vals girls never panicked and did play the more consistent football, for this reason they fully deserve to be in this years county u12 final.
