Connacht Senior Cup Round I

November 8, 2018

Greenfields Hockey Club 5 Galway Hockey Club Seconds 1

After their exploits in Cork on the previous day Greenfields had to face Galway Seconds in the first round of the Connacht Senior Cup in Dangan on Sunday.

The game was played in bright sunshine and Greenfields easily accounted for their opponents in this first leg game. Galway were severely depleted and fielded a very young side as a result of injuries to a number of key players.

As a result Greenfields controlled the game throughout and took a five nil lead with two goals each from Alma Whelan and Neasa McGettigan and a superb goal from Trish Garrett after a great solo effort.

Emma Glanville got a consolation goal for Galway just before the full time whistle from a short corner.

The sides meet again next weekend in the second leg.
