Tough pitch conditions didn’t deter the girls this morning with some
excellent play from the whistle, resulting in a near miss for Lucy Edwards.
This seemed to be the theme for the first half with Shels camped in the Lucan half. Lucan defended with everything with our final ball cut out on several occasions by a well drilled back four. Carla Munson and Caoimhe McGovern were introduced late on in the first to give us more width in play but we still couldn’t find the Key to open the score line with Lucy narrowly missing the target from a close range effort and the best chance of the half, the first half finished Shels 0 Lucan 0
Second Half Edwards found her form with a fantastic header after a wayward clearance from the Lucan defence. Shels -1 Lucan – 0. It wasn’t long before Lucy was on target again this time with a fantastic team effort, starting with some excellent defending by Mia Chambers she burst out of the defence and drove at the Lucan Midfield picking out Zoe Leonard on the wing the ball was crossed in with Lucy Edwards finishing the move. Shels -2 Lucan -0.
Shortly after Aoife Waldron, Laura Reid, Hazel Leavy and Emily Flynn were introduced to secure the game with a change in formation. However we were not finished and with Ciara Marsten fouled on the edge of the box it was only fitting she take the opportunity, with the last kick of the Game Ciara hit the top corner with an emphatic finish.
Game Finished Shelbourne 3 Lucan 0
