Anville and Andrew’s through to senior semis

Mount Anville and St Andrew’s confirmed their places in the Senior Schoolgirl’s Premier League just before the Christmas break as they took vital victories against Loreto, Beaufort and St Gerards.

Aisling Naughton’s superb scoring form continued as she made it seven in three games, grabbing the sole goal for Mount Anville in their win over Beaufort. Andrew’s, meanwhile, were 4-1 winners in their fifth round of games, a result which puts them a single goal behind Mount Anville on goal difference.

The pair meet next week in the final round of the pool stages to determine who takes top spot in Group Two and who they will face in the final four.

Rathdown, meanwhile, concluded their Premier League campaign with a pair of wins, first getting the better of King’s Hopsital 4-0 before rounding out the campaign with a 3-2 success against Loreto, Dalkey on December 20.

It was a strong end to the campaign, the KH win coming after sustaining strong early pressure at Palmerstown. But Rathdown steadied themselves with Orla Macken strong in midfield as both sides used quick counter-attacks to create plenty of chances.

Macken netted a corner just before the interval and Aileen Walsh made it 2-0 early in a high tempo second half, finishing off a one-on-one chance. The home team pushed hard to get back into the game and earned two short corners but were unable to get past Rathdown’s keeper Blathnaid Breslin.

And they were stung once more when great approach work from Millie Barnwell created the third for Lauren O’Leary. Macken added the final goal from a short corner in the last ten minutes and her goalscoring spree continued into the final league game before Christmas when she bagged a hat-trick to gain the points against Dalkey. Macken’s Railway Union club mate Kate Lloyd got two back for the Loreto school.
