Senior Ladies Lose to St Rynaghs

November 8, 2018

Edenderry Senior Ladies played their second round of the championship against St. Rynagh’s in Killeigh on Sunday last. This was always going to be a tough encounter for Edenderry versus championship favourites Rynaghs who did not participate in this year’s County league campaign. Edenderry were forced to line out without their influential captain and midfielder Christine McDonnell due to holidays. Rynaghs were quick off the mark and kicked two fine points before All Star Kim Furey who was carrying a niggling hip injury, opened the scoring for Edenderry with a fine point. St. Rynaghs dominated the kickouts and were rampant in the opening period, creating attack after attack. Edenderry’s second score came from the penalty spot from Kym Furey who shot to the corner of the net.

Edenderry began the second period on a much brighter note with Niamh Kavanagh moving to midfield. The reds were awarded their second penalty after a foul on Maura Byrne and Kym Furey stepped up to score her second goal of the game. Elisha Hunston kicked a fine point from play before full forward Maura Byrne fielded a high ball and shot to the back of the net. Elisha Hunston scored a point from a free and a third penalty was awarded to Edenderry after Maura Byrne was dragged to the ground. Elisha Hunston took over the kicking duties and riffled her shot to the net. The reds were growing in confidence at this stage and a great move finished with Roisin Hurley who was making her championship debut kicked Edenderr’y fifth goal of the game. Elisha Hunston kicked her third point of the game to leave the final score

Edenderry 5-4 St. Rynaghs 4-12

This was a great second half team performance by the Edenderry girls who never gave up and fought very hard until referee Chris Dwyer blew the final whistle, with five points sparating the teams at the finish. Their next outing is away to Clara week beginning the 13th August.
