Moorefield 2-12 Kilcock 2-6

Kildare Ladies SFL Div2 in Moorefield

Despite a brace of Aisling O’Connor goals and an overall spirited team performance, a youthful Kilcock side finally succumbed to their more experienced hosts in Moorefield on Tuesday night? April 4th.
Missing a few first team regulars, Kilcock took a while to settle and were 1-1 in arrears within the first few minutes before O’Connor settled nerves with her first goal of the night.

Scores were hard to come by for the remainder of the half and it was Moorefield who found the majority of the ones that did come about to lead 1-5 to 1-1 at the break.

The powerful strong running O’Connor struck for her and Kilcock’s second goal after the break to leave only two points between the teams.

But despite points from Laura Ward, Lorna Murray, Eve Powderly (2) and O’Connor herself, the Martin Maguire/Martin Kiely trained side never got close enough as Moorefield ran out 2-12 to 2-6 winners. 

Best for Kilcock were Emma Maguire, Hayley White and Aisling O’Connor

Kilcock face Naas next week in Kilcock as they look to get their league campaign back on track.

Powderly Hits Treble In Kilcock Draw

Kilcock 4-7 Carbury 2-13

A second half Eve Powderly hat-trick helped Kilcock Senior Ladies secure a draw against old foes Carbury in their re-arranged SFL division 2 tie in Kilcock today, Sunday March 26th.

Trailing by eight points heading into the final ten minutes of the game Powderly and her team mates showed a great fighting spirit to battle back and were duly rewarded when the impressive Aisling O’Connor found the net with the final piece of action of a pulsating game, curling her effort in off the post after forging her way through a whole host of blue and yellow jerseys. 

Kilcock were playing their first game of 2017 due to adverse weather conditions leading to unplayable pitches while the visitors were competing in their third match of the campaign and this showed in the first half as Carbury settled the quicker and went on to lead at half time by 6 points, 1-6 to 0-3. All this and having had the disadvantage of playing into a strong wind. Eve Powderly, Emma Robinson and Grace White raised the white flag for Kilcock, with Robinson having a goal disallowed for fisting the ball straight into the net.

Kilcock came flying out of the blocks in the 2nd period with Powderly firing a left footed shot to the back of the net straight from the throw in.

The two sides traded scores in a tense battle with Lorna Murray, Sheena Byrne, Aisling O’Connor and Caoimhe Fagan pointing into the wind. 

At the other end Catherine O’Malley and Wiggy kept Carbury’s noses just infront and the duo looked to have put the game beyond doubt when they combined for O’Malley to blast the ball to the back of Eimear Kelly’s net, despite the latters best efforts to keep it out. At this stage there were eight points in it and Carbury looked to have secured the points but rule out this Kilcock side at your peril!!

Pushed on from the back by player of the game Emma Maguire, Kilcock rallied and late goals from Powderly (2) along with O’Connor’s winner helped them snatch a draw from the jaws of defeat. 

Eimear Kelly was solid in goals, pulling off some crucial saves and finding her team mates with a high percentage of her kickouts. Emma Maguire lead by example at centre back while Caoimhe Fagan used her engine to cover serious ground throughout in midfield. Upfront Aisling O’Connor and the hat-trick hero Powderly got the required scores needed to salvage an important draw. A special mention to debutants Brianne Traynor, (who started wing back and put in a fine display) Charley Burke, (who also started) Aoife McArdle and Sarah Lavin from the bench. 

Final score Kilcock 4-7 Carbury 2-13
