Clare Ladies Press Report 03/03/2007

County Senior League Saturday March 3rd.

Division One

The Banner 9 – 12 Wolfe Tones 2 – 2

In a match played in Shannon, senior league newcomers Wolfe
Tones were given a taste of what to expect in the top flight
of Clare ladies football when given a thorough lesson in
the finer aspects of the game by an uncompromising Banner
side. Both teams were short a few regulars but the Ennis
team with county stars Louise Henchy and Niamh Keane to
the fore easily brushed aside the newcomers challenge. Impressive
forwards Mary Higgins and Niamh O’Dea notched up 3 – 1 and
2 – 4 respectively for the winners while Stephanie O’Regan
scored 2 – 1 for the losers.

Miltown 2 – 7 Cooraclare 1 – 8

Last year’s league finalists and great rivals Miltown and
Cooraclare again produced a close encounter in this thrilling
opening match of the 2007 season. Miltown confirmed their
November league final form over the sky blues and edged
ahead to score a narrow but deserved two point victory.
Expect to see both these teams well in contention at the
final stages of this year’s league.

Fergus Rovers 4 – 5 Coolmeen 1 – 6

Newly promoted Coolmeen also found the going tough in the
top flight when going under to a superior Fergus Rovers
team. The Rovers were always in control of this match played
in Coolmeen and were well worth their eight points win.
Coolmeen seem to have a lot of work to do if they are to
be competitive at this level of football especially when
the championship comes around. In contrast Fergus Rovers
already have the look of a team expecting a big season this

West Clare Gaels 0 – 16 Crusheen 3 – 6

Neither side deserved to lose this thrilling encounter but
eventually the points went west in this closely fought encounter.
County captain Majella Griffin was probably the difference
between the two sides and although defeated, Crusheen will
take great confidence from their fine performance in this

Division Two

Liscannor 3 – 5 Kilmihil 0 – 8

Goals win matches and this proved true for Liscannor in
this entertaining division two encounter played in Mullagh.
Both sides did well in this game and both teams will have
aspirations of being there at the business end of the league.
