Gorey ladies with landslide win over Greystones

Gorey 66
Greystones 0

The unbeaten Gorey Senior Ladies took on Greystones in what was a top of the table clash.

The game started at a ferocious pace and with the first 20 minutes, Gorey were 5 tries up with scores coming from Niamh Newens, Ciara Tomkins, and a quick hat-trick by Tara Doyle on only her first start in senior rugby. 

The work rate of the Gorey forwards was making life very difficult for the Greystones ladies. Big carries from Shannen Byrne, Maria Breen, and Olivia Veal set up a good clean platform for scrum-half Nicola McGrath to work off. More tries followed from Anna Nolan, Nicola McGrath and another for Tara Doyle.

Gorey showed their strength in depth and even after emptying their bench they continued to pile on the pressure on the Wicklow natives.

They finished strong and the last twenty minutes saw Orla Molloy, Triona Murray, Niamh O’Connor, and club captain Olivia Veal all cross the line to score.

The Gorey ladies travel to Navan on Sunday the 17th November in their next Leinster league game
