Ladies 7ths look to strong second half to the season
Captain Caoimhe Cruise reports on the Ladies 7ths season so far
As we start into the next half of the season, the 7ths are currently in 8th place on the league table. There are only a few points difference between most teams, hence we have a great chance of climbing up the table. We have had our losses, draws and of course our wins, but the season isn’t over yet. The stand out event for the 7ths so far was our cup match against Mullingar, which we unfortunately lost on penalty flicks (never a nice way to leave!)
The girls fought hard in this cup match, in miserable conditions, but it wasn’t our day. The following week our super 7ths went on to beat Railway 8-0 and showed everyone what they are capable of. So hopefully there’ll be more matches like this for the 7ths.
On another note, it has to be noted that the effort the school girls put in this year has been fantastic-coming straight from school matches and rarely missing training. Keep it up girls! The commitment of our players doesn’t stop there- Jane Dunne got a ball to the forehead in a game versus 3 Rock, coming away with a black eye and swollen face, she still turned up to the next hockey training session in the lashings of rain. Now that’s dedication! We’d also like to thank our coach, Lydia for all her hard work with the team so far, very productive training sessions, motivation and her overall dedication to the 7ths has made a big difference to the team. In summary, our last few performances have been impressive and we are confident we will be climbing the table in the new year. Watch this space!”
