Waterford Notes 13.04.2015

Intermediates finish league with 100% record
Waterford intermediate ladies kept their unbeaten record in the Tesco National Football League Division 3 intact with a comprehensive 5-11 to 3-9 victory over Leitrim in Ballinamore on Sunday last. This victory means that Waterford topped the league standings with 21 points out of 7 games. Playing against a strong breeze in the first half Waterford were quickest out of the blocks with a goal from Maria Delahunty, the Abbeyside starlet followed this up with a pointed free and the Deise girls were certainly on the road to victory when Sinead Ryan chipped in with her first of two goals to leave Waterford seven points up and Leitrim having a mountain to climb with only 14 minutes gone. Leitrim’s sharpshooter Áine Tighe opened their account with a point on 15 minutes but this was quickly cancelled out by a Delahunty free. Waterford again piled on the pressure with a brilliant goal by Aileen Wall, followed by a point by Maria Delahunty and a second goal from Sinead Ryan to leave Waterford clear ahead on the score line Waterford 4-3 Leitrim 0-1. Áine Tighe and Áine Clancy got in on the scoring act just before half time with points for the Connacht side to leave the half time score Waterford 4-3 Leitrim 0-3.

Manager Pat Sullivan rang the changes in the second half but it made no major difference to the level of intensity of the Waterford play. Sinead Ryan opened Waterford’s account with two points before Tighe replied with two for Leitrim. Mairead Wall got herself on the score sheet with a fine point in the 12th minute which was cancelled out by Tighe at the opposite end. Shauna Dunphy and Maria Delahunty tacked on a point each for Waterford before Tighe got two more points for Leitrim to bring the Waterford lead back to 12 points. Louise Ryan got a point and Ciara Hurley rattled the net to get Waterford’s fifth goal before Leitrim took advantage of a tiring Waterford defence to rattle in three quick goals to put an air of respectability on the final score line which read Waterford 5-11 Leitrim 3-9.
The team has now qualified for a semi final but their opponents will not be known until later in the week as the three other qualifiers Sligo, Roscommon and Leitrim have all finished level on 15 league points each. The semi final will take place in two weeks time.
