News & Match Reports for the Girls Mini Tag Teams

Wet, Wild and Windy for Girls tag

Our first fixture of the 2012/2013 season took place in Shamrock Lodge in awful conditions, very cold weather and an almost constant rain. After a mid morning start in miserable conditions, the Boyne Girls braced themselves for a Tag blitz against the Ratoath and Suttonions Girls tag teams. There was great excitement despite the conditions and all teams played extremely well.
