Fantastic day at Girls FAI 5-a-side Soccer

11th Apr 2024
We had a super day at the FAI Girls 5-a-side Soccer tournament in Bailieborough on Wednesday 10th April. Although the rain poured down on them, our two teams played their hearts out, showing wonderful sportsmanship, skill and teamwork.
Team 2 had 4 games in their group. They won two, drew one and lost one by the narrowest of margins. Team 1 won all three matches topping group 1. This meant they were in a play-off with the winners of group 2 to proceed to the County Final at the end of the month. A tense 10 minutes followed where the Muff team came close to scoring many times – but it was not meant to be. The referee blew the full-time whistle and announced 3 minutes of extra time. This too flew by without any scores. We were now into nail biting penalty territory. Our girls showed immense composure and grit to calmly take their penalties. And with two marvellous saves by Philippa in goals we won 4-2 to progress to the County Final!! A great day in spite of the weather. A huge well done to
