Disappointing Final Defeat For Ladies Footballers

Castleknock 2-6 Parnells 5-9

Never once getting into their stride in this Junior 2 Cup Final, the Ladies Football ‘A’ team suffered a disappointed double-scores defeat in Chanel against a highly efficient Parnells side this evening (Sept.11).

Parnells direct running and slick passing troubled Castleknock right from the throw-in. A sizzling Aisling O’Connor shot which went just over the bar on 5 minutes was the best of Castleknock’s early efforts but two Parnells goals between the 7th and 10th minutes proved a huge set-back.

Jess Comerford hit a second Castleknock point in between those goals but playing into the wind Castleknock could only manage one more first-half score, another Aisling O’Connor point, to leave the visitors 9 points adrift at the break 0-3 2-6.

Castleknock needed a really good start to the second-half but within 5 minutes of the second throw-in Parnells had scored another 2-1 to effectively end Castleknock’s hopes.

An Aisling O’Donnell goal sandwiched between two Jess Comerford points showed what Castleknock was really capable of but it was never enough.

A Caitlin Coffey pointed free and a late Aisling O’Connor goal finished the Castleknock scoring on one of those evening’s when little or nothing went right no matter how hard the Castleknock players tried.

Best put this one down to experience and move on.
