Newbridge Under 14 Girls have combined for the season with Cill Dara and on Saturday 14th October 'New Dara' played their first League match against Portlaoise. There was a lot of great play from the newly formed Under 14 Girls Team. They faced a strong well organised Portlaoise side and they did really well and actually came out best in the second half. Portlaoise eventually won by 30pts to 17. The 'New Dara' girls are only just starting to train and play together, so there is better to come. Well Done to all involved in the team.
