Senior Ladies Football League Division 1

St Brigids 6-16 Ballyboden 1-09

Our Senior ladies footballers claimed their first league win of the season on Wednesday evening when they beat Ballyboden convincingly on a scoreline of 6-16 to 1-09 in Russell Park. The early exchanges saw the teams evenly matched with some great battles being played out all over the field. Brigids went in at half time leading by just four points.

It was in the second half that the home side came into their own and pushed on. Goals from Elaine Kelly and Noelle Healy edged the hosts further ahead, with both showing great composure and class in front of goal. Fantastic scores followed from Aisling King, Leah Mullins, Orla Brennan, Emma Sweeney and Aoibheann Lynch sealed a fine Brigids win. There was some excellent support play from the defence and from debutant goalkeeper Ciara Trant. Brigids didnt take the foot off the pedal at any stage and drove on displaying top class football against Ballyboden right up until the final whistle.

Next up for the girls in the league is last years Senior Championship winners, Fingallians in Swords on April 30th.
