Ladies 5s League Review 15th December 2016
Leixlip 5 v 4 AGP
LEIXLIP 2016 LEAGUE CHAMPIONS
Leixlip completed their season with a narrow win vs AGP to remain unbeaten and take their place at the invincibles table!! They were made to fight to keep their 100% record intact but a very well organised and combative AGP side. It was even all the way through and looked like it might end in a draw until 2 minutes from time a great passing move from Lexilip resulted in a neat finish from inside the box to claim all 3 points. AGP were sporting and gracious in defeat and congratulated Leixlip on their season but I am sure will be back next year when they realise how close they pushed the league winners.
For Leixlip, the result capped a fine season for the team. Each week they have come out on top in each game, some close edgy games and some easier games. But like true champions, they never stopped competing and even when games were close they seemeed to have the extra energy to grab late goals to turn 1 point into 3. Chloe Carroll and Dara Walsh led the way in the goalscoring charts but the whole team deserves credit and especially the defence who had conceded least amount throughout the 8 games.
CONGRATULATIONS from all at Astropark and they can now enjoy the Xmas break with a winners medal proudly displayed on the tree.
