Barcelona U16 Girl’s 2008
Well the day finally arrived for our u16/17 girls to fly off to sunny Barcelona! Our first match was against a local team called Macenet Selva and our girls gave an outstanding performance winning the game 6 goals to 1. Casey Grace was our first goal scorer in this game , followed by Megan O`Callaghan, Alison Kelleher, Chloe Wilkins, Katriona Mackey, Pamela Mackey. It was a game that was thoroughly enjoyed by both sides and many friends were made.
Our second game was against a side called Levante Las Planas and again this proved to be a game where the girls were in tip top form showing skill and dedication. In this game we drew 2 all with goals from Casey Grace and Katriona Mackey. Ours girls held on to a 2 1 score up until the final minute of extra time where a questionable free kick by the ref was given just outside our box.However the draw at the end of the game did not dampen our girls spirits and they proved to be perfect guests enjoying photos and chats with the other team !
This trip proved to be a great success and the girls were a credit to themselves and their club! The adults on the trip also had a really enjoyable time as some of the pictures will show! Even the girls were impressed with some dance moves by the adults in a local club!!
