Offaly may have lost the U-16 Leinster Shield back in May, however a brilliant performance from Ellen Regan stole the show and that earned her the Player of the Match Award.
Fast forward two months and Regan is still in tremendous form scoring 2-7 against Kildare in the All-Ireland U-16B competition. Offaly lead from the beginning of the game and had racked up a 1-8 to 0-2 lead at half time.
Scores from Elaine Troy, Clodagh Leahy, Elaine Hanlon and Sharon Shanahon ensured an Offaly vicotry in the opening round of their campaign by 2-13 to 1-5.
The U-16's now face a long summer with games against Laois on July 15, Meath on July 22 and Armagh on July 29.
Team: Rachel O Donaghue, Laura Clancy, Aine Curran, Niamh Ryan, Lauren Temple, Eibhlis Gleeson, Jenny Bracken, Grace Leonard, Jane Cleary, Ellen Regan, Elaine Troy, Clodagh Leahy, Elaine Hanlon, Sharon Shanahan and Kathy Dermody. Subs used: Sarah Pearl and Kerri Leonard.
