Kildare Ladies Intermediate Championship Final 2015

Eadestown 0-11: Clane 1-5

This game was played in Hawkfield on Tuesday 25th August .Clane had won the Kildare Junior championship in 2014 and subsequently went all the way to the Leinster Junior Club final loosing out in the final by the narrowest of margins.  Eadestown were back in the Intermediate grade for the first time in a number of years after competing at senior level. The ground conditions were wet and slippy after a day of torrential rain.

Clane opened the scoring with a Ciara Egan point. Eadestown were slow to settle but captain Aoife Herbert fired over their  first point to equalise. Clane dominated possession early on and had a number of wides in the opening half. Leah Purcell tacked on three  good points from play .Coming up to half time Clanes Lisa O ‘Connor(no13) shot over the cross bar for their second point of the game. Denise Tierney had a busy evening containing Sarah Mc Neill the Clane full forward. As half time approached Stephanie Smith gained possession and from thirty yards out scored Eadestowns final point of the first half. Half time score Eadestown0-5: Clane 0-2.

Clane got the first score of the second half but then Eadestown had a good spell when Leah Purcell converted a free and Grace Clifford , Eimear Ryan and Stephanie Smith kicked over three excellent points. Eadestown seemed to be comfortable at this stage as the game entered the final quarter. Clane battled back and the game was exciting for the large crowd in attendance. Clane kicked over two points from play and the Eadestown defence were under pressure to keep the fast moving Clane forwards subdued. A high ball into the Eadestown goal mouth was misjudged by two Eadestown defenders and the  Clane centre half forward gained possession. As she was about to shoot the referee blew the whistle and awarded Clane a penalty . Clane’s Sarah Mc Neill gave  Fiona O’Sullivan  no chance with a well taken goal. This left the score Eadestown 0-9: Clane 1-5 as the game was in the balance now. Both teams had opportunities to seal victory as the game moved from one end of the field to the other. Fiona O’ Sullivan brought off an excellent save to deny Clane a goal .It was Eadestown who held on to win and in the dying minutes of the game Leah Purcell converted a free and Grace Clifford scored the final point of the game.

It was a great championship final played in a very sporting manner by both teams. It was Eadestowns first championship win since 2007 .  Eadestown now progress to the Leinster Club Intermediate Championship playing the Wicklow senior championship winners on September 12th  at home.
