DIVISION 3 LEAGUE
Fri 11 May RASHARKIN 1-7 Brídíní Óga 2-13
We had a really good game tonight in Rasharkin, with some excellent individual performances, superb point scoring and generally a lot of positives for every player to take home and smile about.
The fact that the game was 13-a-side contributed to it being quite open and that allowed for both teams to show their skills. This was particularly true during the first half, when some of the points taken by both sides were top drawer – a couple for Dara, some great frees from Rachael and points each for Megan and Gemma.
By half time we led by 1-8 to 0-3, Gemma’s determination earning her the goal, while just before the break Rachael added her third point from a free – all of them from 45m or beyond.
Beth came in during the second half to fire over three nice points, although the highlight was Sabs’ point when she side-stepped three players to fire over.
As I wrote at the start, there were many good individual performances, from Caroline, Niamh, Rachael, Úna and the forwards, but for consistency over the hour, Player of the Match goes to Niamh at wing-half back. But well done to everyone.
Our next outing is against Loughgiel in Glenravel next Thursday evening.Brídíní Óga : Jade Bradley, Dervla Donaghy, Caroline McFadden capt., Niamh McKendry, Rachel McBride 0-3 frees, Aisling Mulvenna, Úna McAleenan, Lianne Kerr, Dara Martin 0-3, Megan McKillop 0-2, 0-1 free, Justine O’Hagan, Gemma McKeown 2-1, Sabrina Speir 0-1, Gemma Walsh, Beth McAuley 0-3.
