AGB Results Round Up
AGB Ladies on Winning Streak
AGB senior Ladies defeated St. Pat’s in their Senior Cup tie on Sunday May 13th in Wicklow. This was a fiercely fought contest, with terrific individual displays from Kirsty Hughes, Ciara Forde, Caoimhe Crowley, Jessie McElheron, Georgina Canavan and Aine O’Reilly. A great all-round team performance led to a 3-11 to 1-11 victory for the Arklow Ladies. Meanwhile in Athy, Annie Conroy was representing AGB on the U14 County team that won the Leinster C final against Wexford.
On Tuesday May 15th AGB U14s took on St. Pat’s in the Division 1 league at Ballymoney. Having lost to this side in the Feile final the AGB girls were determined to gain the upper hand in this encounter. They played a superb team game with every player, from Kayleigh Earls in the goal to the full forward Victoria O’Brien, taking responsibility and leading by example. AGB were without the services of Kiera Rochford and Jordan Kinsella, who are still recovering from injury but it was great to see Kayleigh Carter back on the pitch and playing her characteristic determined football. Chloe O’Reilly opened the scoring for AGB with two super goals in 2nd and 6th minutes. Roisin O’Reilly and Doirrean O’Reilly added two more points before St. Pat’s registered their opening score. It was nip and tuck after that with three points from Chloe O’Reilly of AGB and five more points from St. Pat’s. The half time score was 2-5 to 0-6 in favour of AGB. The second half was a closer affair with only a point to separate the sides as AGB scored 1-2 to Pat’s 1-1. The final score was 3-7 to 1-7 in favour of AGB. Super defensive work by Ciara Forde, Annie Conroy, Leah Lynch, Emer Curran, Lisa Keegan and Aoife O’Reilly held the St. Pat’s forwards in check throughout the sixty minutes, helped by some excellent saves and kick outs from Kayleigh Earls in the Arklow goal. Emma Furlong and Orla Hayes battled at centre field and Roisin, Doirrean and Chloe O’Reilly, Megan Boyle, Victoria O’Brien and Doireann Kavanagh worked tirelessly in the forward positions, never allowing an easy ball out even if they didn’t win possession. Kayleigh Carter and Molly Lee subbed in for AGB and showed the strength of the Arklow bench. With Kiera Rochford and Jordan Kinsella back training its full steam ahead for AGB u14s.
On Sunday May 20th AGB Junior Ladies played their cup match against Baltinglass in Ballymoney. This was a close game in the opening half ending on 0-5 to 0-4 score line in favour of AGB. In the second half, however, Baltinglass felt their lack of substitute cover as the game progressed in quite warm conditions. AGB used their substitutes to good effect and dominated the second half scoring 1-11 to Baltinglass’ 0-3. Kirsty Hughes, Lorraine Bracken and Geraldine Galvin were very strong in the back line for AGB, Michelle Scanlon and Claire Murray dominated centre field and Sarah Kendrick, Lisa Rees and Molly Byrne led the scoring for the Arklow side. Another fine performance from Kirsty Hughes saw her come from the half back line to score the game’s only goal, after which she added a superb point. AGB Ladies were happy again with a convincing win on a final score line of 1-16 to 0-7.
Congratulations to Wicklow U14 Ladies who won the Division 3 Section of the All Ireland Blitz in Kinnegad, Co. Westmeath on Saturday 19th May, beating Limerick in the final. AGB was proudly represented on the day by Annie Conroy who took up the right half back position and she and her team mates, acquitted themselves with distinction, bringing home the honours to County Wicklow for the second time in seven days.
