Holloway Gaels ladies secured a place in the British championship
semi-final with an emphatic win over Northampton-based Sons of
Erin on Thursday 5th July. Holloway raced to an early lead with
some fine scores from Ciara O’Malley, Aisling Clifford and Michelle
Kersley. The first half was a one-sided affair with Sons of Erin
failing to register on the scoreboard while Holloway notched up
1-10. Sons of Erin gathered some momentum in the second half thanks
to the some great running play from midfielder Cheryl Thompson
and this culminated in a couple of points. Sadly for Sons of Erin
these were to be their only scores of the match and Holloway finished
up as resounding winners with a final scoreline of 2-18 to 0-2.
It was an impressive team performance from Holloway with all 6
forwards putting their name on the scoreboard. Aedin Kennedy was
superb at midfield while centre back Zoe Carr put in a player
of the match performance. Thompson and centre forward, Nic Genders
were best for Sons of Erin.
