LADIES GAA: MILFORD WIN AGAIN TO QUALIFY FOR ULSTER SEMI-FINAL

first_imgTHE Milford Ladies team ensured their Ulster journey lasted for another week as they claimed their place in next Saturday’s semi-final with a comprehensive win over St. Joseph’s of Antrim on a scoreline of 7-5 to 2-9.Played in front of a large and enthusiastic home crowd, Milford started the game nervously and were two points down after ten minutes.After that though it was all one way traffic towards the St. Joseph’s goal as Milford set about dominatinating the game. Amber Barrett and Aisling McBride were causing chaos for the St.Joseph’s full back line while Caoimhe Barrett was pulling the strings from centre forward.The move of the first half came when Claire Murray brilliantly performed a double block which resulted in a sweeping move up the field and less than ten seconds later the ball was in the back of the net for Milford’s 4th goal.Two more were added before the break to leave the half-time score 6-2 to 4 points.As expected St. Joseph’s came back strongly in the second half as they chased the game and the Milford defence withstood the siege brilliantly while the forwards added another 1-3 to ensure that they were always just that too far ahead. St’ Josephs did score two goals in the last five minutes but at that stage the game was already won and Milford were looking forward to next week’s semi-final against the winners of Donaghmoyne and Strabane Siggersonns.Every player gave a brilliant performance and special mention should be given to Joey McFadden who decided at the last minute to forgoe her friends wedding in order to fill the vacancy left in goal due to the unfortunate absence of Denise Gallagher. LADIES GAA: MILFORD WIN AGAIN TO QUALIFY FOR ULSTER SEMI-FINAL was last modified: October 13th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:LADIES GAA: MILFORD WIN AGAIN TO QUALIFY FOR ULSTER SEMI-FINALlast_img
