In the under 14 League final, Cooley were unlucky not to hold out. They were behind at half time by nine points and with ten minutes remaining had drawn level but could not keep the momentum going and Ardee kicked on and added 4 late points to win the game by 4-10 to 3-9.

Cooley Kickhams had a convincing 4-9 to 2-3 win over the Blues at home last Wednesday evening last in the quarter final of the under 12 ladies Championship

They raced into an early lead with a great goal by Evanna McCann and another by Chaela Ferguson and led by 2-5 to 1-1 at the break, thanks also to some sharp shooting by Niamh Rice and a great midfield performance by Katelyn Quinn. Further goals by Kirsten Murray and another by Evanna McCann in the second half sealed a great win.

It was a great team performance with Hannah Kirwan and Ciara Quinn dominating at the back helped by Aoife McDaid, Aine McDonald, Orlaigh McGuigan and Laura McKevitt in the first half and by Lauren O'Hare and Sophie Challoner in the second. Up front Cooley were well served by Molly Hughes, Shania Murphy, Aoife Gregory, Deborah Malone and Aoife Murphy in the first half and by Roisin McDaid, Rebekah Woods and Aoife Woods in the second.
