Fix­tures DKIT DCU 7-11 5-13

DKIT Ladies Foot­ballers notched their first win of the sea­son over a tal­ented DCU out­fit and full for­ward Ni­amh Cal­lan be­lieves her side are well set up to make an im­pact in the up­com­ing cham­pi­onship.

‘We’re fairly con­fi­dent now, we can def­i­nitely win. We’ve some top play­ers out there and the girls are try­ing their very best out there. They’re at­tend­ing train­ing and do­ing very well in the games.

‘We’re Ready for cham­pi­onship, we know that we’ve got a very good team and we will drive on for the cham­pi­onship.’

The Mon­aghan na­tive and All Ire­land win­ner with Don­agh­moyne also ex­pressed her de­light at the team’s per­for­mance, hav­ing gone be­hind very early on in the game.

‘Yes very good win when we put our mind to it we can do won­ders. We got off to a bad start but once we put our mind to the game and the girls got set­tled, we were on fire and we got those goals that we needed.

‘We hit the cross­bar a few times and the heads went down at stages but the girls put their heads back up and we got the two goals at the end.’

Full back Lau­ren McCaul was very solid at full-back through­out the match and was very pleased with the way her side ral­lied af­ter a night­mare start.

‘Def­i­nitely play­ing num­ber three, I saw the goals go in, but we really stood up to the plate and put it up to them.

‘The last three min­utes, we were three down and we came back and scored that last minute goal and I was de­lighted when I saw it go in that’s for sure.’

McCaul also be­lieves her side are well-placed for the cham­pi­onship, hav­ing bounced back from two de­feats to over­come DCU.

‘Yeah great win. It’s our first win now out of three so we didn’t do any­thing in the league but it’s a real step up for cham­pi­onship now.’

DKIT showed real courage and guts to grind out the vic­tory and will be very op­ti­mistic ahead of the up­com­ing cham­pi­onship. Pic­ture: Ken Fine­gan
