Ladies GAA Season Begins

20 October 2011

RCSI Ladies GAA football team played their first match of the season against UCD on Thursday 20th October.

In what has always been a fiercely competitive match over the years between RCSI and UCD, the results in the past have mainly gone the way of UCD. This year the RCSI girls were determined to give UCD a challenge. With the match under lights on a cold October evening both teams looked determined to make it a match and neither team let their institution down.

In a match with such intensity it was RCSI who took first blood kicking 4-2 points to UCD's 1-1 HT points. With few mistakes being made by either team, it was fairly evident that it was going to be about who was more clinical in front of the posts.

All of the hard preseason training paid off for the RCSI ladies who were able to take their chances in front of goal. Leading 6-14 to 2-2 with 5 minutes to go Liam Flannery (RCSI Ladies Coach) made 7 changes to the team. This gave hope to UCD as they scored 3 goals in the last 5 minutes. Fortunately enough the team were able to hold on for a victory over a very competitive UCD team.

The final score was 6-14 to 5-2 in favour of RCSI. Congratulations to the girls with a great result and a great start to the season. Best of luck to the girls in their next match against Trinity on Monday night, throw in is at 5.45pm at Clanna Na Gaels in Ringsend.
