Moyle Rovers Ladies Football Club Notes - 21st August 2017   21/08/2017

Under 17 Division 2 Plate Final - Moyle Rovers Under 17's took to the field in the plate final against Sliabhnamban on Saturday August 19th. We got off to an ideal start when Dearbhla McDonagh scored our opening goal. After some missed chances Sliabhnamban scored a goal and it was all square. With great passages of flowing football we had some well worked scores from Sarah O'Connor, Kate Moore, Eve Ryan, Alana Dowling and Aine Fitzgerald, the half time score was 2-6 to 1-1. The second half continued in the same vein as the first with great defending by all the backs. Despite their best efforts, the opposition found it difficult to pass the half back line of Robyn Tynan, Louise Norris and Michelle Cronin. Our hard working midfielders Emma Cronin and Aine Fitzgerald linked well with the forward line up. Kate Moore and Sarah O'Connor were in top form and were a thorn in the side of the opposition. At the final whistle the score was 5-10 to 2-2. Emma Cronin accepted the plate, on behalf of her team, from Gillian O'Brien, a member of the Tipperary Intermediate football team. We thank the management team of Tom Moylan, Mairead Dowling, Sharon O'Connor, Oran McDonagh, Marc Collins and Liam Cronin.  Well done girls. Panel: Hannah Mallekoote, Claire Moylan, Amy Norris, Tara McGrath, Robyn Tynan, Louise Norris, Michelle Cronin (captain),  Áine Fitzgerald (1-2), Emma Cronin, Dearbhla McDonagh (1-0), Eve Ryan (0-1), Kate Moore (1-3), Lucy Holohan, Sarah O'Connor (2-3), Alana Dowling  (0-1), Ava Collins, Emma Bates, Grace Quinn, Mia Duggan, Colette Looby, Ellen Buckley and Emma Moore.

Our under 14 girls travelled to Tipperary Town last Sunday to compete in the league plate final. It was a very competitive game with some brilliant battles throughout the field. Moycarkey Borris led by  two points at half time. With it all to play for in the second half our girls went out and fought for every ball but we just couldn't convert our efforts and it wasn't to be our day. Super effort from everyone on the panel. Team: Eimear McKeown, Orlaith Breen, Rachel Cooke, Tara McGrath, Hazel Brennan, Aoibhe Browne, Muireann Duffy, Lucy Boland, Kate Moore, Lauren Duggan, Triona Ryan, Maeve Brennan, Yvette D’arcy, Dearbhla McDonagh, Ava Collins, Collete Looby, Emily Horne Dee, Abby Boland, Kate Looby, Doireann O’Sullivan. 

Last Saturday saw Moyle Rovers face Cahir in the ladies U11 Division 1 Shield Final at Monroe. This first meeting between these two sides was much anticipated with great support for both teams on the day. Cahir playing with the wind in the first half opened the scoring after three minutes with a fortuitous goal followed quickly by two more points. Moyle Rovers replied with a goal from set-play by Eabha Dolan. Cahir continued to  push forward with our girls defending resolutely. Cahir kicked two more points but our girls replied with another goal from Eabha Dolan to leave the score at half time 2-0 to 1-5. The second half saw our girls going forward at every opportunity with great energy from Mia Cahalane and Eabha Dolan at midfield. However a big blow came five minutes into the second half when a loose ball in the Moyle Rovers goalmouth was toe poked into the net to leave our girls with a huge test ahead. Our girls kept battling and were rewarded with two points from play. Cahir continued to pressurise and this was met with great defensive displays from Isabelle Hoare, Sarah Luttrell and Ellie Franklin. Cahir’s more experienced players combined to strike a great goal in the 14th minute despite the best efforts of Rebecca Acheson Dennehy in goal. We scored two more pints to reduce the deficit and had further chances for scores but it was not to be our day. To their credit our girls rallied and never gave up right to the final whistle. The team of fourteen  players comprised six players who were under 10yrs. Thanks and appreciation goes to the entire Under 11 panel of players, their coaches & mentors and their parents for their support during the year.


Good luck to our club representatives Gillian O’Brien, Niamh Lonergan, Sarah Everard, Evrena Everard and Aine Fitzgerald on the Tipperary panel who take on Meath in the All Ireland Semi Final this Saturday evening in Semple Stadium at 4.45 pm. The game will be televised live on TG4.
