St Dominic’s Girls Soccer Team came out on top with a 4-2 win in this 2nd round Girls Senior Cup game played in St Maelruan’s FC pitch in Tallaght.
The sun was beaming down today as the Dominic’s Girls raced into a 1-0 lead, with a well-taken goal by our co-captain, Ella. She added another before St Damian’s pulled one back just before half-time to leave the score line 2-1 at the whistle.
Some super defending by Ugne, Lucy, Caroline, Reem, Grace and Zara kept St Damian’s at bay. This, coupled by some excellent saves by our player-of-the-match Alisha in goals, kept our team in a comfortable position as Ella completed her hat-trick.
St Damian’s pulled one back but this was to be their last goal of the game as our midfielders Robyn, Ella, Kamilia, Holly, Gabriella and Jessica worked hard for every ball.
Our strikers, co-captain Gloria and Alex, hassled the defence to breaking point when Gloria completed the score line to leave it 4-2 at 60 minutes.
We march on to the 1/4 final in hope and optimism.
