Templemore Ladies Football news
The girls took on Golden Kilfeacle in Thurles on Sunday evening in the Junior C Plate semi-final.
In a thrilling encounter the girls came out on top by a single point – 3-10 to 2-12. Goals from Leanne Gleeson and Sarah Buckley had them 2-6 to 1-4 ahead at the break with Mai Marnell, Emma Curley and Abbey Stapleton solid in defence.
The sides traded points in the third quarter before a Golden goal just before the water break left the minimum between the sides (2-8 to 2-7 ). A couple of great saves from Katie Lynagh kept Golden at bay before Buckley’s second goal of the evening proved to be the match winner.
This was a great team performance and the girls now go forward to the plate final on September 27. This will be a historic day out for the club with Seniors competing in the B final.
Thanks to Martin Grey for the live stream and to Marty for commentary.
