All the latest from the Wicklow Ladies

Wicklow ladies football round-up

The ladies football championship quarterfinals were played over
the weekend with all results going to form.

In the junior championship the semi-finalists will be Clara, Kilcoole,
Arklow and Eire Óg, while in senior Blessington and Bray Emmets
meet first round winners Carnew and An Tochar respectively. The
match of the weekend was in Kilcoole on Saturday evening when the
home side saw off Baltinglass after an enthralling battle, 2-10
to 3-4. Kilcoole are likely to be challenging for the title but
had to work extremely hard to overcome a spirited young Baltinglass
outfit. Susan Hackett (1-3) and Pamela Maher (0-3) were top scorers
for Kilcoole while Sandra Carroll (2-0) and Geraldine Norton (1-2)
were in good form for the western side.

As expected Arklow Geraldines had a relatively straightforward win
over newcomers Donard the Glen (8-8 to 1-2), while Clara were too
strong for Kilbride’s second team. However the scoreline of 6-13
to 1-2 did not reflect the game fairly as Kilbride were unlucky
not to put away a few more scores.

In the last junior game Eire Og travelled to Carnew and came away
with a 4-5 to 0-2 victory. Leah Horan was one of the Greystones
stars with 2-3, while Jade Coffey scored a great individual goal
and Caolfhinn Deeney also impressed.

In the senior championship Bray Emmets’ greater championship experience
showed as they despatched Kilbride on a 5-13 to 2-8 scoreline. Bray
owned the ball for the first half with Éadaoine Lenihan dominating
midfield and built up a comfortable lead. But Kilbride came alive
for the second half and put in a much improved performance. Bray’s
young forwards Kim Cusack, Mikaela Shelly (2-2) and Aine O’Gorman
(3-2) were a constant threat.

In the second senior semi final Blessington put on an extremely
impressive performance in defeating Valleymount by 2-19 to 1-0.
In doing so they showed that they have championship ambitions and
laid down a marker for the rest of the county.
