U12 Stars and Stripes – Week 2

Monkstown had an excellent match against Blackrock on Saturday evening with very close matches al around!! The girls were in good form again and won a very tight match 21-18. The Monkstown boys also had some great games but were just beaten, despite a great performance from the no 1 pair of Harry Kelly and Oliver Kennedy. However, it’s still all very close after two weeks (which is the best way!) Monkstown are in third but only one point behind LMV so all to play for!! Results were as follows:

Boys

Harry Kelly and Oliver Kennedy  Won 10-3

Matthew McCarthy and Sam McGannon     Lost 7-6

Philip Bolger and Peter Shaw  Lost 12-1

Boys result – Monkstown 17 Blackrock 22

Girls

Nicole O Connell and Suzanne Cullen   Won 9-4

Lizzie Woodcock and Sophie Walsh Lost 5-8

Monica Doyle and Orna McMorrow Won 7-6

Girls result Monkstown 21 Blackrock 18 

Overall Monkstown 38Blackrock 40

Well done to everyone and many thanks to Lorna for organising the boys and to Veronica for the girls. We are home next Saturday so best of luck to all again.
