Laois 1s v Old Alex (Away) 10th February 2024

Laois 1s travelled to Alexandra College for their second match against Old Alex this season. The game started off well for Laois as they pushed forward from the get-go. There were passages of nice play particularly between the mids and forwards and Laois were very threatening in the opposition's circle.

Some nice play between Eimear O'Sullivan in right back up through Ruth Wilkinson, Abigail Clarke and April Kent up to Amy Lacey, Yvonne Hargroves and Amy Moynan eventually led to Laois's 1st goal, finished by Yvonne. Laois didn't let up in the 2nd quarter either as they pressed on with excellent teamwork from Susan Fingleton, Karen Fingleton and Claire Igoe and Eimear in the backs.

Fresh legs from Jess Shirley and Grace Cunningham also helped Laois to push on and dominate the 2nd quarter. Jessica Shirley got the 1st of Laois's goals in the 2nd quarter with a fabulous reverse flick. April Kent followed up with a 2nd shortly after when she found the net with a fantastic high shot. Laois continued to press their advantage throughout the 3rd quarter, though Old Alex made a valiant effort to make a comeback.

More great teamwork in the circle put an end to this comeback though as Laois found the backboard again, finished by Amy Moynan. Old Alex still didn't give up, however, and pushed on in the last quarter, but to no avail. The game finished 4-0 to Laois.

Laois 1s face Botanic away next Saturday 17th February at 12.30pm.
