Analysis Faugh’s Senior Ladies v Kileevan: The Faughs ladies defeated Kileevan in St Marys Park on Sunday evening on a score line of 4.13 to 2.4 with a much improved team performance against a Kileevan team who were missing a number of players.
The Faughs ladies defence put in a very steady performance throughout the game. Midfield managed to hold the upper hand and gave the forwards a good supply of ball to keep the scoreboard ticking over. Kileevan fought to the end and put the Blayney goals under pressure in the second half but the Faughs secured two league points to add to their tally.
