“Foxrock Cabinteely Crowned Dublin Junior


Champions Foxrock Cabinteely 5-18, Croi Ro Naofa
4-7 Foxrock Cabinteely captured the Dublin Ladies Junior A title
last night at O Toole Park in a highly entertaining football.
Building on recent underage success including All Ireland Feile
Div 1, U14 and U16 doubles, Foxrock Cabinteely won their first
adult title by overcoming a spirited Croi Ro Naofa side. Played
in excellent conditions, both teams gave a display of skilled
football. Foxrock Cabinteely opened with 2 quick points from Amy
Ring and Ann Marie Murphy before Ring found the Croi Ro Naofa
net with a well taken goal. Further points from Louise Stafford,
Marla Candon(2) and Sinead Murphy saw the Foxrock Cabinteely girls
take a strong early lead. Ann Marie Murphy and Amy Ring again
found the net before half time. Points from Amy Connolly and 2
further pointed frees from Amy Ring had Foxrock Cabinteely entering
the break with a strong lead. In the second half Croi Ro Naofa
lifted their game and began to close the gap with well taken scores.
The Foxrock Cabinteely defence came under intense pressure with
Lisa Murphy and Allison Phillips getting a steady supply from
Nicola Murphy. Goalkeeper Sinead Murphy brought off a top class
save from a well taken penalty. Caroline Callan, Kirstie Mc Ardle
and Elaine Bolger steadied the ship midway through the second

The Foxrock Cabinteely Team

Sinead Goldrick, Sarah Brophy and Blainaid Callan
ensured that the supply line to the dangerous Croi Ro Naofa inside
line was limited. Marla Candon gave an inspiring captain’s display
throughout the match. Ciara Murphy at midfield helped to settle
things early in the second half with a long range point. Doireann
O Daly covered every inch of the pitch and created numerous chances
for her colleagues. Louise Stafford and Sinead Loughran goals
opened a formidable lead in the second half with further points
from Ann Marie Murphy (2), Amy Connolly and Sinead Murphy. Ann
Marie Murphy rounded off a great night deservedly winning the
‘player of the match’ award. A special mention goes to Tony Lennon
who gave a great performance as Referee.
