U-13 Swords Girls teams unbeaten season!

The Under 13 Swords Girls team completed a remarkable unbeaten season with a 37-17 victory over Corinthians in Mount Temple in Division 3.

In this well contested match the girls were called upon to produce their best defensive game of the season to date. Crucial baskets from Zara, Matilde, Sinead, Niamh, Kate and Sophie building on great defensive play from Mairead, Madeline, Louise , Ciara and Ciara H, however, ensured a comfortable victory in the end.

Their coach, Therese, and manager, Maria, are rightly proud of the girls’ achievements this season.

The future for this team looks bright!
