The Malin Ladies travelled to Convoy on Thursday night for their third game of the season. With the break in matches taken for the Leaving Cert and along with their ongoing rivalry with Convoy the team were raring to go, to make it three wins out of three and they didn’t disappoint. The Ladies started well with an early goal kicked in from a free by Emer Lafferty. This was followed by some good points that were worked through the centre of the pitch with some great team support play. The hard work put in by the Ladies Team over the last couple of weeks really came to fruition in the second half when the score was back to within a goal, however the team really dug deep to ensure that the gap was widened again and by the end of the match the Malin Ladies came out deserving winners. The match was a great team performance with a squad of 20 travelling to Convoy. The girls will continue to train Tuesday and Thursdays with the remainder of their league matches scheduled for the end of June and July, see match time updates on our facebook page. The Ladies first championship game will be against local rivals Urris. Well Done to the all the Ladies involved, let’s keep the momentum going now with the aim of coming out on top of the league this season, paving the way for the underage teams coming through the ranks.
