Ladies Lose By The Odd Goal In Five To Harps
The very first final of the season, took place last Sunday, with Slaney Ladies losing by the odd goal in five to Hanover Harps in the Women`s Division One Cup Final. If only Slaney had played, half as well in the first half as they did after the break, there would have been a different outcome. Behind 2 nil, Slaney got a foothold in the game when Mary Coady scored from the penalty spot, bringing her career total to 44 goals in 139 appearances. With Slaney forcing the game looking for an equaliser, Harps scored a 3rd. on the break. Slaney having finally got their passing game together, scored the goal of the game....starting from goalie Leona Leonard and four passes later, Chloe Farrell had the ball in the Harps net. And in the dying moments Chloe again got in behind the Harps defence whereas in the semi final in a similar situation, she scored to keep Slaney in the cup this time around, the ball trickled wide…..it just was not to be.
