Ark­low girls hit right note

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT -

LAST Satur­day the Ark­low RFC un­der-14 girls trav­elled to En­nis­cor­thy away. Fac­ing into their third con­sec­u­tive away game, this team have shown re­mark­able re­solve to date.

Ark­low is­sued their in­tent from early on with two great tries from Sarah Lawlor. En­nis­cor­thy then re­sponded with a try and there were con­cerns that Ark­low heads would drop. How­ever, Grainne Flynn crossed over for a try to al­lay fears of that.

Emma Keane then got in on the act with two more tries fol­low­ing some strong run­ning from Jane Neill.

Lara Prestage then crossed over in the fi­nal min­utes to leave the fi­nal score at 39-12 to Ark­low.

It must be said En­nis­cor­thy were a very com­pe­tent team and it is a tes­ti­mony to the Ark­low team’s de­fence that the home team’s scor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties were kept to a min­i­mum.

This was due in part to a huge ef­fort from Becky Vick­ers, Ce­line Mur­ray, Leah Hersee, Ava Brady, Daisy Tyner, Bro­gan Doyle and Katie Han­ley.

Hav­ing only been es­tab­lished two months ago, this vic­tory has been the cul­mi­na­tion of the huge amount of work this team have put in cou­pled with their never-say-die at­ti­tude.

This Satur­day they hope to con­tinue this form when they host Tul­lam­ore at home at 12.30 at ARFC. All sup­port would be wel­come!

Ark­low team: Becky Vick­ers, Emma Keane, Ce­line Mur­ray, Ava Brady, Daisy Tyner, Bro­gan Doyle, Katie Han­ley, Grainne Flynn, Jane Neil, Sarah Lawlor; Leah Hersee.

A big well done to Sally Ann and Rachel and all oth­ers in­volved with this team!

Keep it Up!!

The Ark­low un­der-14 girls, who recorded a great win in En­nis­cor­thy.
