DIVISION 3 LEAGUE
Wed 11th April Rossa 2-4 Brídíní Óga 8-10
Pádraig travelled up from Dundalk tonight to watch the girls in Division 3 – and they certainly stepped up a gear from last week with this fine performance in Rossa Park – giving him food for thought as he returned to Dublin for the night.
Oonagh got us off to a great start with an early goal and Beth (2) and Clara quickly added points. There was a little lull in the scoring then until we got a 20 metre free. Even though Beth was instructed to take it, Oonagh stood over the sliotar and crashed it to the net. That got us going once more and we ended up with a 3-7 to 0-2 half-time lead, with everyone really on top of their game.
Úna moved to midfield for the second half and continued her good work alongside Beth. Some fine scoring in the second half as well with Gemma and Eimear finding the net with shots from 30 metres.
Overall a good team performance; some of the passing was top drawer, particularly a four player move from the corner of defence in the first half, involving Úna, Rachel and Beth before Oonagh finished it off with a fine point.Brídíní Óga : Jade Bradley, Dervla Donaghy, Caroline McFadden capt., Lauren Edgar, Úna McAleenan, Rachel McBride, Gemma Walsh, Beth McAuley 2-4, 0-2 frees, Lianne Kerr, Eimear Higgins 1-1, Gemma McKeown 1-0, Justine O’Hagan 0-1, Clara Duffy 0-1, Oonagh Ward 4-3, 1-0 free, Shannon O’Boyle, Bronagh McKay, Sabrina Speir
