Kildare Ladies Football News

The County Minors surprised some people, me certainly, with the
manner of their win over Longford on Saturday. Okay, so Longford
were in the “B” championship at Under 14, 16 and Minor but they
did win the Leinster Minor “B” last year fairly handily and were
touted as a progressing outfit. Saturday told another tale. With
a midfield that were totally dominant Kildare had the game won
in five minutes. A major boast to the “Lilies” has been the emergence
as a footballer of Louise Keatley. A brilliant Camogie player,
Louise has only been playing Club football for two years and never
player Under 14 or Under 16, for a club never mind county. She
has the fielding ability and mobility to make the grade and if
she can continue to successfully juggle her Camogie and football
commitments she can really make an impact. The Senior League continued
on Sunday and the result of the Confey v Grangenovlan game will
make many take notice. Having narrowly lost the League Final last
term Confey were expected to give the Champions a hot reception
in Creighton Park. A twenty one point win is some marker for the
year.

While Grangenovlan were short a few, notably Brianne Leahy, they
will have it all to do if they are to recover as Eadestown and
Leixlip will also want a piece of the action. Leixlip following
their midweek draw with Confey had a decent six point win over
Maynooth for whom Anto Mooney slotted an excellent goal. Now that
Therese Martin has headed for Australia the full forward spot
on the Kildare Senior “B” side would entice Anto back to White.
Sunday evening saw a highly exciting game in Eadestown. The drama
started even before the game when Referee Tom Gordon was stranded
and at ten minutes notice the intending spectator Willie Sargent
was called into action. The drama continued and a late late Sarsfields
goal gave them a share of the spoils. Ballykelly suffered another
heavy defeat in Division 2 when St Laurences visited and the other
exiles from Division 1, Athgarvan, also lost their second game
albeit by a narrow margin, Clane 5 – 5 Athgarvan 4 – 7. Suncroft
and Naas continued their history of high scoring encounters with
Suncroft ten points better on this occasion while the Eadestown
second string collected the points with an even more emphatic
win over Na Fianna.

Division 3 saw Kilcullen overcome Rathangan in a two point game.
Kilcullen are flying but Rathangan to be getting it together by
the look of the 3- 6 to 3-4 scoreline. In Division 4 Balyna had
another victory by their second team but Rheban will be encouraged
by scoring a nice 2- 6 in faraway Clogherinkoe while Ballymore
Eustace continued their bright start to the season with a good
away win over Castledermot. Next week end sees the focus turn
to Under Age as the Seniors take the Easter week-end off. The
last round of Under 16 Fixtures in Divisions 2 & 3 are listed
for Saturday. The scheduled Rounds of Division 1 have been completed
although there might just be one or two postponed gamed to be
played. Friday and Saturday could be busy then and Saturday also
sees the kick-off of the Under 12 competition, again it’s the
Division with extra rounds, Division 3 and the brand new Division
4 while Easter Monday had a full list of Under 14 games. With
all that hectic action out of the way it will be down to serious
business for the County Under 14 & Under 16 squads who will have
their first Leinster Championship games the following Saturday,
April 14th.
