KILLENAULE MOYGLASS LADIES SOCCER

The final curtain came down on the senior team last Saturday in U.L. with a disappointing result losing 6-1 to Wilton in the Munster Final.

The end result was no reflection on the game but conceading 2 goals in the first 10 minutes gave the Cork side huge confidence and they dominated the game, scoring a third goal after 30 minutes. But from there on the Killenaule girls got on top of the game and Ellen Walsh and Katie O’Regan were just off target with two fine efforts and it remained at 3-0 to half time, mainly due to some fantastic saves by Hannah Stapleton during the first 30min she had a player of the match performance. Eidin Murphy and Edel O’Dwyer had to be substituted due to bad health in the first half by Amy Pollard and Roisin O’Regan, while Cait Murphy and Emer Barry defended with great strength.

The second half was an exciting, competitive game with Erin Slattery and Katie O’Regan getting control in midfield. Killenaule started to get chances Aimee Maloney and Shauna Hayes got some opportunities and Roisin Trehy had a ball tapped away from her feet as she ran on to a great cross from Shanna Hayes and Shauna just missed the target with an excellent shot from a Roisin O’Regan cross, but it was persistence that paid off in the end when Shauna scored off a poor Wilton backpass and 3min later the keeper somehow put an excellent shot from Roisin O’Regan around the post for a corner, Kilenaule’s fourth of the half.

With 10 minutes to go tiredness was setting in Nell Trehy came on for Roisin Trehy and lifted the effort for awhile but when Cait Murphy got injured in a tackle and we were down to 10 players, the floodgates opened and Wilton 3 goals in 7 minutes; 2 scored in injury time.

The best team won the game but it was a great performance from the Killenaule Moyglass team especially when a few players were missing.
