Senior Women

Wicklow Senior ladies 29- Balbriggan 17

At 1 p.m. on a windy but sunny day Wicklow took on Balbriggan for a match that would determine who would sit at the top of the league table.  League leaders Balbriggan kicked off into the wind and Wicklow attacked immediately with a nice segment of passing that led to Meagan Parkinson scoring a try with a run from the half-way line. Leanne Sullivan converted. Wicklow led 7 – 0.

 

Wicklow were strong again from the restart and won a penalty, however the effort for three points was wide. Balbriggan responded with a great clearance kick and applied pressure on the Wicklow defence.

The Dublinners won a penalty and converted for three points. In what was a very physical match Balbriggan’s pack managed to make hard yards time after time. Back down in Balbriggan’s half a clever cross field kick by Wicklow and good hands back across the line saw Andrea Petru cross the line for a great team try.

 Ten minutes later great Wicklow rucking and quick hands led to Megan McConnell going over for an unconverted try.  The score at half-time was 17-3.

The second half saw a rejuvenated Balbriggan playing to their strengths. Wicklow were under sustained pressure from both the driving Balbriggan forwards and the boot of their number ten. Wicklow started strong and Hannah-Rose Buckley was just held up over the line. Balbriggan lost possession at scrum time and in an initial ’two on one’ situation Kayleigh Sullivan was the try-scorer, the conversion was missed but Wicklow led 22 – 3.

Minutes later after a powerful Balbriggan attack, Wicklow found themselves with a scrum on their own five metre line. A loose pass was tidied up over the Wicklow try line by Ciara Patrick and the pass to Meagan Parkinson sent her on her way for a length of the pitch try. The try was converted to make it 29 – 3 and Wicklow looked out of sight.

 Balbriggan fought back however with two converted tries in quick succession, their pack got their due rewards and forced Wicklow to defend heroically for the remaining five minutes.

The final whistle blew in Wicklow’s twenty-two and left the score at 29-17. This was a great squad effort by Wicklow and although not all went as planned Wicklow got the five points and now top the table.

They travel to Clontarf next Sunday for the next fixture of their league campaign.

Tries: Meagan Parkinson (2), Andrea Petru (1), Kayleigh Sullivan (1), Megan McConnell (1)

Conversions: Leanne Sullivan (2)
