Match : Saturday, 10th November 2012 Venue - Mercy Convent, Waterford.

11 members of the younger U12 team travelled to Waterford today with plenty of supporters to play the Wildcats. After a slow start they recovered well by the end of the 1st quarter to draw level. They stayed well in contention throughout the 2nd quarter and were only a few points down at half time. Then a much stronger Waterford team pulled away. However there was plenty of effort and teamwork continually put in throughout the whole match by the Old Leighlin girls- they worked hard until the final whistle. Team: Hannah Callaghan (2pts), Niamh Bambrick (6pts), Jane McDonald, Melanie Griffin, Katie Dunne (2pts), Shauna O'Neill (6pts), Sadhbh Scully, Maggie Forde, Ashling Aughney (1pt), Mary Ann Hickey and Ciara Farrell.
