Wicklow People (Arklow) - - SPORT -

GOREY/ARKLOW known as ‘Argo’ took to the pitch Saturday morn­ing to play their first match of the new league Le­in­ster 18’s Premier 3 vs North Meath.

The girls started off well with Kate Far­rell scor­ing a try within the first few min­utes; stepping her way through the de­fen­sive line.

The game con­tin­ued on and both teams were strong in at­tack while also putting in great hits in de­fense.

Ul­ti­mately Argo came out with an­other try, Emily Slater scor­ing an­other with a crash ball up the mid­dle with Kate Far­rell con­vert­ing.

Argo con­tin­ued on strong with Ava Pierce mak­ing a break through and run­ning for her first try of the game, Kate Far­rell also con­vert­ing.

North Meath con­tin­u­ous strong counter ruck­ing led them to steal the ball pass­ing it out the back line and scor­ing their first try of the game. The half-time score be­ing 19-5.

The sec­ond half of the match was un­der­way and within min­utes Argo’s Caoil­fhinn Ka­vanagh stepped her way past de­fend­ers lead­ing to an­other try. Argo’s for­wards Ge­or­gia Earls, Siob­han Kennedy and Han­nah Kee­gan along with the rest of the pack put in great work at line outs and scrum time. North Meath not giv­ing up came back with a con­verted try clos­ing the gap. Argo’s back line reacting quickly with great hands and speed Kate Far­rell scor­ing her sec­ond try of the match.

As the match pro­gressed fur­ther into the sec­ond half, Argo showed even more skill with scrum half Kerry Byrne mak­ing a break for the line scor­ing her first try of the game un­der the posts con­verted by Caoifh­linn Ka­vanagh. Once again North Meath’s re­lent­less counter ruck­ing gave them one last op­por­tu­nity to get over the white line. Fi­nal score 41-17.

‘Arklow Rugby Club would like to thank ev­ery­one for com­ing out to sup­port the ARGO girls and to Shane Byrne for stepping in to ref­eree the game,’ they said.
