Wesley continue winning ways as Gerards drop first points

Leinster Schoolgirls Premier League
Section A

Week Three results:
Mount Temple 1-3 Wesley
Wesley continue their 100pc record after three rounds of the Premier League  while Mount Temple will rue missed opportunities early on against the section A front-runners.  Twice they created one-on-one chances but on both occasions they could not convert.  Hannah Honner put Wesley in front, and the same player netted her fourth of the competition so far with seconds to go to the interval to give Wesley a 2-0 lead at the break.  Nicola Taylor pulled a goal back for Mount Temple, but Amy Stewart ensured Wesley maintained their perfect start in Section A.

St Andrew's 2-0 Loreto, Bray
St Andrews maintained their perfect start to the league with a comfortable victory against Loreto Bray. Gillian Pinder opened the scoring from a corner, and Sarah Woodroofe doubled the lead. In the second half Bray defended excellently and created a few chances themselves, but the scoreline was not added to by either side.

Rathdown 0-5 Muckross Park
Muckross impressed in Glenageary as the 2008/09 league finalists picked up their first win of this year’s campaign.

Section B
Week Two result
High School 1-0 Loreto Foxrock
A fairly even game with chances at both ends was settled when Susan McRann scored a short corner in the last ten minutes to win the match. It’s their second win from two outings so far this term.

Week Three results:
Alexandra College 4-0 High School
Alexandra College were away to a young and talented High School team that played well for long periods of time. The two teams were evenly matched for the first half with only a brilliant solo effort from Deirdre Duke making it 1-0 at half time. In the second half Alex started to control possession a little more with their forwards all creating chances for each other. High School were dangerous on the counter-attack, with some good chances and winning a few corners. In the end, the sustained pressure from Alex paid off when they scored three late goals to make the final score 4-0.

Sutton Park 0-2 Mount Anville
Sutton showed further improvement, as they kept Mount Anville at bay for all of the first half.  The away side dominated possession and territory, but had few circle penetrations or shots on goal in the opening period.  Mount Anville settled their nerves early in the second period when they forced a roll-over from the Sutton defence, and made no mistake in finishing the move.  A second goal midway through the half ensured there would be no surprise result. The Goatstown school now has two wins from two.

St Gerards 2-2 Holy Child Killiney
St Gerards may well be wondering how they managed not to take all three points from this fixture.  Goals from Danni Maher and Meadhbh Delahunt had them two up at the break which could have been more - they also sent a stroke wide in the opening period.  Killiney got back into the game when Ailish Naughton deflected in a corner.  Naughton also scored the equalizer after a fantastic solo run.  Killiney had goalkeeper Sadie Lowe to thank as she pulled off a brilliant save in the dying seconds to keep the scores level which gave Killiney their first point of the campaign and Gerards dropped their first points from three games.

Week 4 (to be played by October 24)
Section A: Our Lady's Terenure v St Andrews College; Loreto, Dalkey v Rathdown; Loreto, Bray v Muckross Park; Wesley v Mount Sackville
Section B: St Gerards v The High School; Holy Child, Killiney v Sutton Park; Alexandra College v Mount Anville; The Kings Hospital v Loreto, Beaufort

Wesley are getting some great results but I think they will get a true test from Mt Sackville in the next round who are well organised and have some quality players.
Great to see the new league structure for the girls creating more interest and more competitive matches. Well done.
