U-16 Girl's finish fourth

The Irish under-16 girl's finished with two defeats in the European Youth Championships to finish fourth despite two gutsy first half performances against the Netherlands and Spain.

In Saturday's semi-final, the Irish held the Dutch scoreless before struggling in the second period to lose 5-0 before tying 1-1 with Spain at the break in the 3rd/4th place play-off but fell to a 3-1 deficit.

The Netherlands went on to win the competition with a 2-1 win over England and are the first qualifiers for the 2009 Youth Olympics in Singapore.
