Westport Senior Ladies Bring Home Division 2 Cup

Senior League Division 2 Final – Played 30/09 in Parke , , Westport didnt get the start they were looking for in this game as Swinford/Killasser got off the mark in the 3rd minute & were a goal & 2 points up before Westport took a score.  Westport took thier first score in the 13th minute from a free taken by Tara Hastings. Westport seemed to settle into the game with 2 points by Cliona OMalley & 2 from Noirin Moran but it was still not enough as Swinford/Killasser went into the break 5 points up. Westport knew they needed a better start in the second half & thats exactly what they got as the first touch was from quick thinking Tara Hastings, who put the ball over the bar.  This was followed by a Goal from  Noirin Moran which  settled Westport back into the game.  Credit has to go to Westports Midfield & Backs who were outstanding in the 2nd half only allowing Swinford/Killasser to score 3 points from play & Westport were more than lucky to come away with a one point win. Well Done to both teams & their Management. Thanks to Tom Lavelle from the County Board who was on hand to Present the Cup to Westports Captain Mary Duffy & Thanks to Parke GAA Club for use of their Facilities. As Westport headed home they were greeted by a bonfire (Thanks to Pat Walsh) & we were well feed in the West Bar & Restaurant, Thanks to all involved.,  , Well  done to all the girls in winning the Division 2 Cup and we are looking forward to succeding in Division 1 next year.                                                , , Team: Becky Gavin, Laura Heraty, Ursula Sammon, Helena Kelly, Ciara Lyons, Rebecca OMalley, Janette OMalley, Mary Duffy, Cathy McKenna, Cliona OMalley(00-02), Serna OShea, Niamh McNea(00-01), Shelly OGrady, Noirin Moran(01-04), Tara Hastings(00-03), , , Subs: Nicola OMalley for Helena Kelly, Ashleigh Rose (00-01) for Shelly OGrady, Laura Keane for Cliona OMalley, Shelly OGrady for Niamh McNea, Stephanie Heneghan for Laura Heraty, Sarah Heraty, Clodagh Muldowny, Siobhan Golden, Donna Ryder & Lauren Burke.
