The Clonmel CTI Ladies Football junior team who recorded a win over St Colman's of Midleton recently.
SENIOR GAME: CTI Clonmel 2-11 - St Colman's, Midleton 1-4
This contest began in thrilling fashion with C.T.I. opening with the first four scores.
Ava Collins and Ella Morrissey commanded midfield and linked up excellently with forwards Naoise Forrestal and Ciara Redmond.
After the initial period of dominance, the tide began to turn, and St. Colman's began to gain a foothold. CTI sisters Aideen and Holly Prout and Sophia Farrell defended strongly repelling attack after attack and ensured that the Clonmel girls remained in front.
With the result in the melting pot it was always going to take something special to swing this encounter either way. That something extra came through a fantastic move started by Sophie Hogan and finished stylishly by Anna Hayes which allowed the Clonmel side to regain breathing space.
Saskia Cuddy was also exceptional in defence all day long and linked up terrifically with Róisín Connellan to scupper many opposition attacks.
A special mention is due to the CTI goalkeeper Charlotte Concannon, who was magnificent with her kick-outs, launching many a move upfield for her teammates with her accuracy.
At the final whistle CTI had moved well ahead again to win comfortably on a scoreline of 2.11 to 1.4.
