Some more pictures from Adult Ladies Championship Win here
On Friday 19th September 2014 in St Annes Park, O'Dwyers GAA Adult Ladies created history by being the first ladies adult team to win a championship in the club.
It was a game of two halves. Naomh Olaf's started from the whistle with a long ball into there full forward line and found the back of the net. O'Dwyers fought back to equalise playing up the hill. Olafs were awarded a penalty and hit the wood work.
Half-Time Score: O'Dwyers 1-06 Naomh Olafs 2-02
In the second half O'Dwyers lost their shape for 15mins but kept popping over points. In the last ten mins the Balbriggan ladies moved up a few gears and kept flooding the Olaf half with point after point. Olafs were down to 14 girls in the last 7mins after a foul on a green jersey. Shannon Richardson stepped up to take an accurate penalty into the back of the net. A few minutes later after a strong run by 14 year old Erin Healy covered 60 yards with the ball, she unselfishly passed to Shannon who found the back of net agin with a fantastic finish.
That was it, history was made. Lauren Sweeney had led her team to success.
Final Score: O'Dwyers 3-14 Naomh Olafs 2-04
Erin Healy received player of the match and overall it was an outstanding preformance from all the team.
Special mention to Shannon Richardson who scored 2-08 out of 3-14.
Well done Johnjo O Carroll, Fergus O'Carroll and Dolores Mooney. And of course all who came out to support our ladies
