Ladies field hockey in Glasnevin, Dublin.

1sts played Kilkeel in the Irish Hockey Challenge Cup up in Kilkeel on Saturday, 4th February.

It was an exciting game by all accounts, finishing up 1-1 in full time. Gillian McAuliffe scored during the match. Following the full time whistle, it went straight to penalty flicks. Botanic won 2-0 on penalty flicks with Marie McDonnell, the 1sts goalie, saving all five of the Kilkeel shots. What a result!

The semi-final of this cup competition will be on 25th February in Wexford v Wexford HC. Time to be announced! Road trip!
