Ladies Weekend Round Up

Ladies round up

JUST one game went ahead in the TG4 Ladies senior
football championship yesterday, with Dublin proving too strong
for Laois at Westmanstown, 0-8 to 0-6. Like a host of other sporting
events yesterday, the TG4 ladies football championship fell foul
of the inclement weather with Meath’s clash against Kildare
among the ties called off. However, Dublin’s season could be
back on track after a battling two point win over Laois – who
won the Division Two National League title recently. 

The Dubs, who suffered relegation to Division Two in the league
this year, have really struggled to find any form this season.
They are without a host of players who were regulars over the
last few years and had been largely written off to retain their
Leinster title this year.

However, they showed signs of improvement in wintry conditions
yesterday and sent out a warning to the likes of Meath, Kildare
and Laois that they don’t intend handing over their Leinster
crown easily. The sides were level at the break but Fiona Corcoran
and Niamh McEvoy dominated midfield and controlled the tempo of
the game in the second period. Mary Nevin was almost faultless
from frees and kept Dublin in contention throughout, but it was
a brace of points by Sinead Ahern in the closing stages that pushed
the Dubs to victory.

A number of games in the junior championship were also postponed,
but Carlow’s clash with Wexford did go ahead with the Model
County taking the win, 3-20 to 2-3.
