St Margaret’s Junior Ladies get off to a winning start in Championship


The team travelled out to Cherryfield on Wednesday night to face Ballyboden St Endas in their first Championship match of the season following the cancellation of the match against Skerries last week. The girls had a nervous start to the game and took a while to settle down to the task at hand. They traded points with their opponents in the early stages of the game and found themselves with a slender 3 point lead at half time. The girls came out in the second half and found that extra gear racing into a 10 point lead before the water break. Seven forwards were used on the day with all seven scoring which was fantastic to see. Particularly impressive up front was Kate Dwyer contributing 1-12. Also impressive was Skye Healy with Tasha Barnwall who pulled the strings at centre forward. Tutsy Cogley was impressive in goal and kept a clean sheet. Rachel Dwyer was rock solid at full back. The half back line of Lauren McDonnell, Sophie McQuillan Clarke and Leah Burke showed great character by slowly getting on top of the strong Boden half forward line and eliminated that threat. Yvonne Dwyer and Charmaine Doyle as has become the norm for them, worked their socks off to drive the team on.
St Margaret’s: Tutsy Cogley, Jodi Tynan, Rachel Dwyer, Ceri Rogers, Leah Burke, Sophie McQuillan Clarke, Lauren McDonnell, Yvonne Dwyer, Charmaine Doyle, Rebecca McGuinness, Tasha Barnwall, Skye Healy, Kate Dwyer, Caroline Lawlor, Shauna Martin. Subs: Kaylah Clarke, Rebecca Monks, Erica Milling, Sarah Mangan, Lucy O’Rourke, Meabh O Grady, Deana Stobie
