Ladies Team Match Result:
Naomh Mairtin / Glen Emmetts 2-06, O’Raghallaighs / Oliver Plunketts 5-14
The ladies got off to a great start to the 2018 season on Friday evening with a win away to Naomh Mairtin Martin / Glen Emmetts . On a bitterly cold and wet evening, the “Ratplunks” played some excellent football, especially in the first half, and actually lead at half time playing into a stiff breeze 1-09 to 2-05.
It was a slow start to the second half. In fact, after 10 mins in the game was level. However, two quick goals and a couple of points left daylight between the sides and it was basically one way traffic for the remainder of the match, with the “Ratplunks ” running out comfortable winners in the end.
Every player on the night played their part, with some standouts including Charlene, Sarah, Aisling, Seoda and Sinead.
Team: Martina Friel, Lauren Bateson, Charlene Murray, Sarah Callan, Nora Conaghy, Hannah Martin, Nessa Early, Sinead Killeen, Seoda Matthews, Orlaith McEntee, Kenza Fields, Aisling Brady, Emily Hyland, Emma White, Evie Martin.
Subs: Erin Smith, Aimee Kelledy, Cailtin O Reilly, Louise Johnson, Emily Johnson, Naoise Hoey, Jessica Smyth.
