Emma Duffy defensively superior for Ladies 2nds

Ladies 2nds v Templeogue Synge Street 02072018 (1)Mon 02 July 2018 – We haven’t reported much on the St Brendan’s Ladies 2nd XV, this is because their games take place simultaneously with the 1st XV. So on the first Monday in July, the Ladies 2nds, sponsored by Martin and Moran Property Advisors, were in Longmeadows in a bid for a 2nd win of the season against Templeogue Synge Street.

However, the away side, in essence, ended the game as a contest in the 3nd minute with two quick fire goals, the second of which came from Augustina Lazzerini’s kickout. Indeed TSS went 3-03 to no score after 14 minutes. The Female Dark Force got on the board when Lorna Barton made a break to Siobhan Moloney and played a great ball to Marina Kilduff and her shot over the bar. Like last Thursday with the Mens 2nds game, there was a 3 minute water break such was the hot conditions.

TSS added a fourth goal before Marina Kilduff added a second point with a free in after a foul on Helen Lenihan after picking up a pass from The Turkish Delight Mina Alkunkaya.

To their credit, the Ladies, particularly Emma Duffy and Romy Madden defended extremely well to limit TSS to 3-07 at Half Time with The Crossmolina Deel Rover winning eight turnovers.

The Away side notched up three points on the spin at the start of the second half, but Kilduff was back on the scoresheet with point number 3 after a Sabrina Fleming pass. There was great defending by the St Brendans defence and a Michelle Ryan pass found Marina Kilduff, who with the goal at her mercy, place it low into the net. 3-11 to 1-03. Another Syngers point followed, then there was a 2nd water break of the game.

Mina Alkunkaya saw her goal shot cleared by the goalkeeper. A brace of points followed by TSS, and Deirdre Holland, put the disappointment of Saturdays Newbridgegate behind her by hitting a well taken point.


Full Time Score: St Brendan’s 1-04 to 3-14 Templeogue Synge Street.


Despite a 3-14 to 1-04 defeat, St Brendan’s Ladies 2nds defended very well. In other news the Female Dark Force were given their 2nd victory of the season with a walkover due to Ballyboden St Endas being unable to field a team for Wednesday’s clash.
