Senior Ladies Championship - Match Report
Championship v Man O War
We still had an outside chance of qualifying for the Championship semi-final if we had a big win in this game. We were missing Aine Gilmore, Emily Dawson, and Sinead Cullen who all played a big part in this championship run so we needed a big effort from the whole squad to get us over the line in this game.
The first 10 minutes were a bit sloppy but we then had a fortunate goal from Lyndsey giving us a 1-2 to 0-2 lead. This seemed to spur us on and with some great defending again led by our captain Saoirse Kavanagh and attacking play at the pace we racked up another 2 goals, 1 each from Megan Carroll and Cathy Coleman, and 5pts, 4 from Lyndsey to give us a lead at half time 3-7 v 0-5 . If we could do the same in the 2nd half that outside chance of qualifying for the semi-finals would definitely have been within our grasp.
There was a big wind against us in the 2nd half but we started well and had a great team move finished off with another goal from Lyndsey.
After that, the wheels came off a bit letting Man O War back into the game with some very sloppy play gifting them with some very easy scores. The momentum definitely shifted in their favour and with 7 minutes to go, they got another easy goal to draw level. To the girl's credit, we went straight up the field and got a great point scored by Patricia Ferguson. We then regained a bit of composure and had a great turnover in the half-back line quickly getting the ball in Lyndsey and she finished the game off with a well-taken goal. We were delighted with the win (5-9 v 4-8) but unfortunately, we lost out on the points difference to qualify for the Championship Semis.
However we now have a nice home draw in the Shield Semi-final v Lucan Sarsfields this coming Wednesday, so hopefully, we will have a big crowd down supporting the girls and fingers crossed cheering them on into the Final.
Lyndsey Davey 3-6
Megan Carroll 1-2
Cathy Coleman 1-0
Patricia Ferguson 0-1
