Syls u-14 Girls Vs. Foxrock/Cabinteely Duel in the Sun We conceded a few early scores in this game, played on a scorching hot day on the hard ground of FoxCab’s ground in Kilboggett Park However, despite the heat, our girls stuck to their task throughout the first half and remained competitive in what was turning out to be quite a physical and challenging game in which the referee was kept busy. There were quite a few stoppages in play, and some injuries, though, happily, none of these turned out to be serious
