Ladies through to Leinster Semi Final

Published in Ladies Football, News

Our ladies team were in Leinster intermediate quarter final action last Sunday at home to Old Leighlin of Carlow and after a very good performance, came away with a very convincing win. The game was fairly tight for the first quarter with nothing between the sides. However our ladies started to get to grips with the game and held an 0-08 to 0-03 lead at half time after some fine scores. The ladies put in some great defence and tacked on some fine points plus an Ashling Cosgrove goal to cement their place in the Leinster semi final which will take place next Sunday. Thanks to Old Leighlin for a fine sporting game. We will have a long journey to Shelmaliers of Wexford next Sunday for the semi final. We played the same opponents at the same stage last year and came away victorious in a home fixture. We know the ladies will do their upmost to reach another Leinster final and wish them well in their quest. See fixture list for details. Commiserations to our near neighbours Young Grattans who put up a good show before defeat was their lot in their Leinster Junior quarter final match last Saturday. The experience will hold them in good stead in the years ahead.
