Heavy de­feats for Wick­low county sides

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT -

WICK­LOW slumped to a com­pre­hen­sive de­feat at the hands of the Paul Gar­ri­gan-trained Meath side on a score of 4-19 to 0-10 in the Ladies All-Ire­land IFC at Ash­bourne last week­end.

Meath were ahead by 2-13 to 0-3 at the interval and de­spite play­ing against a strong sec­ond-half wind were al­ways com­fort­able although they misssed some good chances.

Wick­low showed sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ment in the sec­ond half, adding an­other seven points to their tally.

Hav­ing drawn with Long­ford the pre­vi­ous week, James Kelly’s side needed a win des­per­ately but alas it wasn’t to be and they now wel­come ta­ble top­pers and All-Ire­land con­tenders Tip­per­ary to Dulavin this Sun­day at 1pm for the last of the round robin games in the com­pe­ti­tion.

Gar­ri­gan’s Meath have held a stran­gle­hold over the Gar­den County side this sea­son with the vic­tory for the Roy­als in the Le­in­ster semi-fi­nal the most re­cent. Meath went on to lose the pro­vin­cial de­cider to Wex­ford.

The Wick­low team on Sun­day were: Kim Con­nors; Erin Ho­ran, Sarah Jane Win­ders, Aoife Gillen; Lorna Fus­cia­rdi, Aimee Ma­her, Tara Dowl­ing Costello; Aoife Gorman, Sarah De­lahunt; Jackie Kinch, Lau­rie Ah­ern, Mead­hbh Deeney; Marie Kealy, Laura Hogan, Sarah Mi­ley.

There was also a heavy de­feat suf­fered by the Wick­low camo­gie team in the Liberty In­sur­ance Premier Ju­nior Cham­pi­onship Group 2 when they crashed to a 3-31 to 0-0 drub­bing at the hands of Water­ford in Walsh Park.

They wel­come Lim­er­ick to Dun­bur Park this Satur­day at 3.30pm for what should be a tough game.
