After a run of 3 defeats, the women's team got back to winning ways with an excellent 5-0 victory away against All Blacks today. Missing a host of players due to injury and work commitments they travelled with only nine players and must have feared the worse. But All Blacks found themselves in a similar position with only 10 players available and so the game kicked off with 10 v 9.
From the kick off, aided by a strong breeze, the girls controlled the game with the back three of Chloe Moynihan, Zoe Kearney and Paulina Farynik in commanding form which allowed the midfield of Alma Morris, Katie Moynihan, Abbey Roche and Laoise Kearney to press the All Blacks high up the pitch and support lone striker Nicole Fortune up front.
Laoise put the girls 1-0 inside 10 mins when she latched on to Katie Moynihans pass to fire home. It was 2-0 five mins later when Nicole Fortunes shot was parried and Abbey Roche swept in the loose ball make it 2-0. The girls were flying now, passing the ball freely and creating havoc in the All Black defence and a thunderbolt from Nicole Fortune from the edge of the box made it 3-0 with just 18 mins played. All Blacks battled hard and tried to find a way back into the game but Zoe Kearney made it 4-0 in the 43rd minute when she let fly from 30 yards out and the ball nestled in the back of the net.
The second half saw the girls playing into the wind but they coped well despite All Blacks pushing hard and Katie Moynihan again turned provider slipping Laoise Kearney in behind the defence and she made no mistake to score her 2nd and the teams 5th in the 55th minute. Nicole, Laoise and Katie all had chances to increase the lead but it finished 5-0 to the girls in an excellent display. Well done to Laoise Kearney who scored her first senior goals and also to Katie Moynihan who played her first senior game and gave a mature performance in the middle of the park despite her young age.

Hard luck to the Senior Womens team who lost out 4-3 at home against Tombrack in their Wexford Cup clash on Sunday. The girls started slowly and found themselves 2-0 down inside the first 30 mins. The first came when possession was to easily lost in midfield and the Tombrack player strode forward un-impeeded before slotting home her shot into the bottom corner. The second saw possession again given away and Sarah Merrigan lobbed her first time shot over Michaela Murphy in the Bunclody goal to make it 2-0. The girls fought back and a well struck free kick in the 39th minute from Nicole Fortune made it 2-1 before Britney Conroy broke free of the Tombrack defence before firing home to make it 2-2 just before halftime. The second half saw the girls play with only 10 players as Paulina farynik had to leave due to other commitments and with only 11 to start with it meant the girls having to play the second half with only 10. They were well in the game before gifting Tombrack a very fortunate goal to make it 3-2 when Michaela let the ball slip out of her hands and the Tombrack forward prodded the loose ball home. It got worse shortly after when Sarah Merrigan was allowed to travel into shooting range and she placed her shot beyond Micheala to put Tombrack 4-2 up. The girls fought back and created a few chances before Britney scored her second and the teams third to make it 4-3 in the 85th minute. Laoise Kearney almost took the game to extra time when she broke free 1v1 with the keeper but the keeper managed to save her shot and ensure Tombrack progressed to the next round of the cup.

Wexford Celtic fought back in the second half and created a host of chances before equalizing from the penalty spot in the 60th minute. But less than 10 minutes later Paddy Kavanagh raced onto to John Brennans through ball and scored to put the lads 2-1 ahead. Wexford Celtic piled on the pressure again and equalised for the second time in the game in the 75th minute. With both teams looking for the winner chances came and went before Wexford Celtic scored there 3rd and the winning goal with virtually the last play of the game when the left midfielder crossed and the ball was headed home to give Wexford Celtic the win and ensure heartbreak for the lads.

The Womens Team suffered their first loss of the season yesterday, losing 3-2 away against Fastnet Rovers in their Div 2 league clash.

Fastnet scored after 6 minutes when an in-swinging corner was not cleared and was drilled into the net. Two more goals followed to leave it 3-0 at halftime. The second half saw the girls go in search of the goals they needed and Britney Conroy scored in the 55th minute from a well struck free kick to make it 3-1. A penalty was awarded in the 70th minute when Paulina Farynik was fouled but Britney pulled her effort wide of the post much to the relief of the Fastnet defender.

Hard luck to the U16 girls who lost out 5-0 at home today against a strong Forth Celtic team.
The first half was a tight affair with both teams playing good attacking football and the first goal was going to be crucial. Unfortunately it came for Forth when a defensive error allowed the forward to shoot home just inside the box. Forth made it 2-0 a few mins later when the forward was given to much time and space inside the box to shoot. Alena Moore made a great save but the rebound fell kindly to another Forth player who had the easy task of tapping into an empty goal to leave the girls unfortunate to be trailing 2-0 at the break.
The second half saw the girls try hard to get back into the game which opened up space which Forth exploited and they scored 3 more goals in the second half to win both the game and the league title as well. Well done girls for a great effort
