Enniscorthy’s ladies seconds were far from second on Sunday with a 1-0 away win against UCD at Belfield in Division 12 of the Leinster league.
Enniscorthy started off well with a penalty corner after five minutes soon followed by a powerful goal from left winger Hannah Sweeney.
Enniscorthy fended off their fair share of penalty corners as well with their goalkeeper Alice Medcalf and their determined defensive line of Amy D’Alton, Aine O’Brien, Eleanor Bolger and Ellen Creed with speedy midfielder Laura Redmond working hard both defensively and in a counter attacking role.
There was strong attacking play overall by invaluable midfielders Alice Kelly, Ellen Rogan and Megan Dempsey, and the superb forwards Ciara Parnell, Hannah Neville and Hannah Sweeney to finish up with the well deserved result.
The second eleven’s next match will be held on the 15th of December against Weston 3rds at Grifeen Valley Park in Lucan.
Squad: Alice Medcalf, Alice Kelly, Ellen Rogan, Megan Dempsey, Ciara Parnell, Hannah Neville, Hannah Sweeney, Amy D’Alton, Aine O’Brien, Eleanor Bolger, Ellen Creed and Laura Redmond.
