Seneschalstown 5-17 Trim 0-14
Seneschalstown qualified for the Kepak Junior C Semi-Final with victory over a gallant Trim side in Fr
Tully Park on Sunday Sept 24th .
Early exchanges were even in this encounter with the home team leading 0-2 to 0-1 after the first 6
minutes with Ruth Commons knocking over two early frees. While the next 10 minutes was to prove
very fruitful on the scoreboard for the home side, they also lost a couple of players to injuries. Kelly
Smith got the ball rolling with the first goal which was soon followed up by a fine Commons point.
The game was held up then for a few minutes when Zoe Kirwan, only back from an arm injury,
received treatment on a leg injury which forced her off to be replaced by Katie Geraghty. Chloe
Williams then got on the scoresheet followed by another Commons score. Midfielder Ali Finnegan
then had to depart the fray injured to be replaced by Niamh Mulvany. Smith added another point
from play and soon afterwards intercepted the Trim kick out before setting up Katie Geraghty to get
the Furze girls second goal on 16 minutes. On the run into the break Smith, Geraghty (2) and
Caoimhe Clarke knocked over points from play with the Trim side also getting 3 points to leave the
score 2-10 to 0-4 at the break.
When the second half resumed and Irish weather now showing its unpleasant side, it was Trim who
got the ball rolling on the scoreboard. Kelly Smith replied with a point before Trim knocked over
another point. The next two scores for the home team were goals by half time substitute Ava Jane
Ryan with two cracking finishes in the 35 th and 38 th minutes. Another point from Commons was soon
followed by Geraghty’s second goal before Lucy Lynch opened her account as Seneschalstown
management emptied the bench.
The Trim side never gave up and tagged on the next 4 points
without reply before midfielder Darcey Kilfeather got in on the scoring act with a point from play for
the home side. In the final 5 minutes points from Ryan, Holly Knowles and Aoife Lenehan completed
the scoring as Seneschalstown advanced to meet Na Fianna in the semi-final next weekend this Sunday, October 1st in Baconstown at 2pm.
Well done to the team and management and all involved in getting to the semifinal.
