Glenanne gain promotion

Glenanne ladies gained promotion back to big time as they deservedly won a dramatic promotion/relegation match with Three Rock Ladies, 3-2 after extra-time.

The Glens were on top for most of the first half but found themsleves behind when TRL scored against the run of play when pusher out Laura Binions knocked in a penalty corner.

But the game was tied up two minutes into the second half when Marie Goulding equalised from a short corner rebound and moved 2-1 ahead soon after.

They racked up a number of corners but could not extend the lead and Three Rock came back strong – Susan Mellon missing a well-worked chance to draw level before making no mistake with a fortuitous chance with just two minutes left.

That forced extra time – the first period was nervy and scoreless, with a corner apiece while the second half saw the crucial goal. Mary Waldron – an Irish international soccer player – got the goal, slotting home from five yards after a right wing cross made its way right across the circle.
