Leinster u14 championship group B Rd2
Kildare v Laois
Manguard Plus Hawkfield
Referee Paul O Malley (Westmeath)
HT score Kildare 8.05 Laois 2. 04
FT score Kildare 10.16 Laois. 3.04
Kildare u14s turned in another dominant display of football for the second week running this afternoon in Manguard plus Hawkfield where they had a very comfortable win over a very gallant Laois side that battled all the way to the final whistle.
Last week’s game away to Wexford produced a goal fest with 10 been scored and this game was no different producing 13 in total. Indeed there could have been more but for the actions of both keepers producing excellent saves throughout the game, the highlight of those saves was when Laois net minder Emma Ramsbottom dived correctly to stop Kildare Captain Ellie Kendricks penalty.
Kildare lead at the break 8.05 to Laois 2.04
Unfortunately for the visitors they only had one change to their scoreboard in the second period, a goal late on by Áine Costigan, but such was the homesides superiority they had time to finish out the game tagging on the last 3 points leaving the full-time score
Kildare 10.16 Laois 3.04
The interesting thing about this high scoring game was that all scores from both sides came from play.
Kildare will now play a Leinster B semi final on March 30th with opponents, venue and time TBC.
