This was tough opposition for Kiltale to open their 2012 season. After getting relegated last year Kiltale needed a good start to this year’s campaign.

It was Navan who got the early lead, getting a goal from the puck in leaving Kiltale chasing the game. Kiltale responded well and showed no fear to their senior opponents. They fought back and took the lead thanks to scores from Cheyenne O’Brien, Aoife Weston, Taylor little and two goals from Sarah Kelly gave Kiltale a much deserved lead in the first half.

Once again in the second half Navan started the strongest and fought back with three unanswered points to narrow the score difference to just three points. Kiltale responded with scores once again from Cheyenne O’Brien and Donna Mc Gann. Navan tired to fight back and managed to score a goal however Kiltale answered it with a Cheyenne O’Brien goal to finish the stronger team. Kiltale were comfortable winners in the end.
