Louth Ladies defeated by Dublin


Ladies beaten by Dublin in League


Dublin 3-6 Louth 0-3

Louth Ladies, captained by Sharon Drumgoole failed
to make an impression against a strong Dublin
side in the second round of the Division 1B league
in Termonfeckin on Sunday last. Dublin got off
to a strong start and within the first ten minutes
the ball had made it passed Louth goalie, Lynn
Savage putting them three points up. Louth were
playing against the wind in the first half. Dublin
then scored two points putting them further ahead
in the first half. Louth were struggling in all
positions on the filed in the first half and playing
against a very strong wind proved difficult for
them. Nuala White continued to put pressure on
the Dublin backs and was unlucky not to have scored
a goal as a result of a good run up the field.
The Dublin goalie made a great save to prevent
the Louth girls putting a score on the score board.
Towards the end of the first half Louth began
to put pressure on Dublin and were unlucky again
not to have converted a number of points, instead
they just went to the left of the cross bar and
wide on a number of occasions. Ann-Marie Murphy
put Louths first point on the scoreboard when
she converted a free towards the end of the first
half. However at this stage Dublin had notched
up a few more points, leaving the score Dublin
1-5 to Louth 0-1 at half time.

No changes were made to the Louth team as they
emerged from the dressing room for the second
half. However it wasn’t long into the second half
when Tara Lynch replaced Rosanna Heaney in the
half forward line for Louth. Good play by Louths
Ann Marie Lynch in the half back line kept Dublin
at bay and ensured Louth maintained possession.
However, both the half forward and full forward
lines failed to capitalise on the possession for
most of the second half. Dublin regained possession
a number of times during the second half and in
doing so punished Louth for such a poor performance
by clocking up two goals and a point in the second
half to a point from Louth, again from a free.
Bronagh Malone was then replaced by Marie Brennan
towards the latter stages of the second half for
Louth. A late point for Louth in the second half
was little consolation. Dublin proved to be the
more dominant team on the day and thus leaving
Termonfeckin deserving winners on a score of 3-6
to Louth’s 0-3. Best for Louth were Ann Marie
Lynch, Edel McKeown and Ann Marie Murphy. Louth
go on to meet neighbours Meath this Sunday in
