Girls U16 FAI Cup 2nd Round
Aisling break Kilmallock hearts in penalty shoot out after stalemate

Aisling Annacotty 1-1 Kilmallock AET, 4-2 on penalties

The Aisling-Annacotty U16 girls reached the 3rd round of the National FAI Cup on bank holiday Monday, on penalties, after a pulsating match in Annacotty. Kilmallock got off to the ideal start when, after only 5 minutes, Clodagh Doherty was put through 1 v 1, and calmly slotted to the net giving Kilmallock the early lead. Both teams competed fiercely and created scoring chances but it wasn't until the 70th minute that a superb volley from Susan O'Shea gave the Kilmallock goalie no chance and equalised the match for Aisling-Annacotty. After extra time still hadn't separated the 2 sides, the outcome of the match was decided by penalties. Clodagh Doherty and Amy Fitzgerald scored for Kilmallock while Alicia O'Callaghan, Emma Costelloe, and Sarah Hall converted for the home team. Aisling keeper Abby McCarthy saved 2 penalties and then scored the deciding goal herself putting Aisling-Annacotty through to the 3rd round of the FAI Cup.
