Mi­nors come up just short

Su­per squad beaten late

Bray People - - SPORT - DO­MINIC LEECH

WICK­LOW ladies Mi­nor squad trav­elled the short dis­tance to St Lau­rence’s in Kil­dare to play their Le­in­ster Mi­nor B semi fi­nal.

Th­ese teams had met in the round robin se­ries with Wick­low suf­fer­ing a loss and af­ter 10 min­utes the writ­ing seemed on the wall as the gar­den county trailed 2-8 to 0-2.

But Wick­low were not in the mood for giv­ing up and driven on by Carnew’s Ella Do­ran who scored a vi­tal goal and with a huge de­fen­sive im­prove­ment the half time score read Wick­low 1-7 Kil­dare 2-9.

How­ever, the first half was only a taster for the sec­ond half as both sides went to bat­tle and in a wel­ter of ex­cite­ment both sides traded scores.

As the full time ap­proached the sides were level but in in­jury time Kil­dare broke wick­low hearts with a point to leave the fi­nal score Kil­dare 3-14 (23) to Wick­low 2-16 (22).

A mas­sive con­grat­u­la­tions on the teams dis­play and on the en­tire per­for­mance by all the play­ers and man­age­ment in match that kept all the spec­ta­tors on the edge of their seats.

Best wishes to Kil­dare on their vic­tory to­day and we wish them well in the ‘B’ fi­nal.

Wick­low now go on to con­test the Le­in­ster Mi­nor ‘C’ Cham­pi­onship fi­nal against ei­ther Meath or Car­low.

Scor­ers for Wick­low ; Katie Mi­ley 1-5, Ni­amh O’Brien 0-8, Ella Do­ran 1-0, Marie kealy 0-3.

Well done also to our Un­der-14 squad and men­tors who trav­elled to Por­lLaoise to play in the All-Ire­land Un­der-14 blitz and gave a fan­tas­tic dis­play of foot­ball, al­though not qual­i­fy­ing for the fi­nal.
