Sallins Celtic 0 - 1 Vale Wanderers AFC

Sallins Celtic 0-1 Vale Wanderers

Vale secured the win with a well taken goal in the opening quarter from Keeva Collins. Vale started the game confidently on the back of a good win against St Anne's last week. Early chances went a begging from Chantelle Kelly & Laura Kearney as the visitors tried to put Sallins on the back foot. Sallins began to gain a foothold as their direct style saw Aoife Roche & Orliath Sawyer tested at the back with Sammy Monahan saving well to deny Sallins their lone effort on target in the first half. Vale struck on 8 minutes as a dominant display in the opening half by Keeva Collins saw her combine well with Jane McDonald before driving a sweet left foot strike low to the Sallins right corner of the net. Collins could have doubled Vales lead 2 minutes later but her effort went wide. Just before the break, a superb solo run out of defence by Orliath Sawyer almost saw her cut through the entire Sallins team only to be denied by a well timed last ditch tackle.

The second half saw Sallins regroup as they put in a much improved display. However both defences dominated as chances were scarce. Laura Kearney had Vales best chance of the half as she was denied by a good save. Keeva Collins had twice broke well down the left with both her efforts off target. Aoife Roche HT roke well from defence but her effort from distance was blocked. Sallins rallied late on & had a couple of close moments to test Vales defence as Chantelle Kelly saved well. A dominant display by Orliath Sawyer & Aoife Roche saw Vale keep a clean sheet to secure the win.

Best for Vale were Keeva Collins, Aoife Roche & player of the match Orliath Sawyer
