Lacken Cross overcome St. Mary’s of Newport
05 February 2010
St. Patrick’s College in Lacken Cross had a comprehensive victory over Tipperary side St. Mary’s in the UMBRO FAI Schools Senior B Girls National Semi Final last week which was played at Terryland Park, Galway.
Stephen Lacken’s team were assured easy access to the All Ireland Final after an array of first half goals courtesy of Aileen Gilroy (5), Aoileann Collins (4), Rachael Healy and Niamh Collins.
St. Mary’s put up a gallant effort with some superb defending by Eilish Ryan and Claire Cunningham. Unfortunately the onslaught was too much for the Tipperary defence at times.
Sarah Berkery was very strong up front for the Munster Champions but the final ball failed to deliver any real goal scoring opportunities for St. Mary’s.
The second half was matched by further goals from top goalscorer Aileen Gilroy (2), Aoileann Collins, Elaine Lowther (4), Martina Walker and substitute Sharon Killeen.
The impressive St. Patrick’s College will now face St. Killian’s DSD in the All Ireland Final which is scheduled for Friday, 12 February at Flancare Park, Longford (KO 1pm).
