Vale Wanderers AFC Pink v St Joseph's AFC
Vale girls and Joeys share the points
18/01 12:30
Vale Wanderers AFC Pink 2 - 2 St Joseph's AFC
With the exception of a cold frosty morning this game was played in perfect conditions on Vales astro pitch. From the first minute this game sparked into life with strong running, last ditch defending and some feisty challenges. All this was very well controlled by Carlow league and vales club lady referee who deserves a special mention. With both teams creating and passing up some chances the opening goal didn't seem to be far away. After fifteen minutes of the first half the game really started to open up, Joeys were starting to take control and were rewarded after a through ball was finished past the excellent Amy Farrell in the vale goal by Mikey Byrne. With confidence growing in the Joeys team they were really pushing for the second goal until Bronagh Nolan got on the ball in midfield and played the perfect pass over the top for the ever present Clodagh Lawlor to volley past the advancing Joeys goalkeeper. This act brought the half time whistle. The second half started much like the first at one hundreth miles per hour, again it was Joeys who were doing the pressing. This pressure paid off and after a well worked team move was finished off from close range by James carpenter. The VALE girls took issue with this and Bronagh Nolan grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck, her strong running was now creating her own chances and havoc for the Joeys defence. It was at the end of one of these trade mark runs she passed to Kellie Dermody on the edge of the box, Dermody rifled home with the outside of her right foot low and hard to the Joeys net. Both teams had chances to win the game but a draw was a fair result. Best for Joeys was Reece Mc Canny. Vale had an outstanding squad performance spearheaded by Bronagh Nolan, Katie Brennan, Alisha Conron and Amy farrell.
