Ladies Football

Spirited display by Junior Ladies

Syls Junior Girls put in a great performance last night in the Championship V Ballyboden Wanders in Ballyboden. While the Malahide girls were very short on numbers and did not win this game it was probably the best game they ever played. Syls playing with the wind ended up 3-7 to 0-5 behind at half time. Ironically despite the scoreline Syls had actually played some good football in the first half.

Girls battle gamely against Na Fianna

Girls battle gamely against Na Fianna

Ladies Senior Division 1 Our ladies put in a great second half against a stronger Na Fianna in Broomfield last evening. Fair play to the junior players for stepping up, especially Jackie Costelloe for her brave goal keeping, Carol Hickey showing the energy of girls half her age, Orla who took a nasty knock, hope you are ok. Niamh Harney worked tirelessly in the middle, Cliodhna Hamill and Lea Harold defended well and everyone on the field worked really hard. Missing our county players to county action and other senior players due to vacation and injury is a heavy load to carry but great credit to the girls for their very spirited display. It's a very young team with a great future and it was great to see support on the line.

Niamh operating from the Number 14 position was the key target for kicked balls into the full forward line, with her quick hands Niamh transferred the ball to her colleagues who made intelligent runs to support.
