The 3rd round of the championship saw Walterstown travel to Trim , in the hope that the corresponding fixture from the league would have a different outcome.
The game started slowly and was a good 10 mins in before Mollie Grey registered the first score of the game. Walterstown notched up another 3 points before Trim registered their first and only point of the half. Aileen O Sullivan then bagged Walterstowns first goal , and almost immediately scored a second only to see her effort come off the crossbar.
Half Time Trim 0:01 Walterstown 1:05
After the break Walterstown brought on the fresh legs of the younger players and the scores started to build up .Marie McCarthy continued her good form with two fine goals , and Mollie Brown making her championship debut also increased Walterstowns lead. A late penalty awarded to Trim , which the blacks keeper Caroline Murray got her hands to but couldn’t keep out , and also a late point for Trim could not hide the fact that Walterstown were by far the better team on the night.
Final score Trim 1:05 Walterstown 3:12
It was a great team performance from the ladies who ran the game front start to end and gave their manager Justin McCarthy a birthday present he definitely was proud of.
