Tralee Ladies played Ballincollig at home today in the division 1 league.

It was an emotional day as Riona Kennedy played her last home game in the blue and white for Tralee.

In what is always a tough match Tralee started well keeping Ballincollig pinned in their own half. A penalty for Tralee which Laoise O Driscoll put over.

Ballincollig defended well but another penalty to Tralee which Laoise put safely over. 6-0 to Tralee.

Quick ball out to the backs off a scrum saw Riona Kennedy make a great line break and 5 metres from the line she gave a super off load while being tackled to Vanessa Dineen who went over for Tralee’s first try. Converted by Laoise O Driscoll. 13-0 Tralee at half time.

Second half and Ballincollig got off to a great start, pushing Tralee right back to defend their own line. Ballincollig were rewarded with penalty try. (13-7).

With both teams defending well the score remained the same until the last minute when Aine Enright touchdown for Tralee’s 2nd try. Final score Tralee 18 – Ballincollig 7

It was a fantastic home outing on Saturday as Tralee hosted in the U14 West Munster League Final at O’Dowd Park.

Thank you to our opponents Rugbaí Chorca Dhuibhne for a fantastic hard fought battle, with great sportsmanship from both teams. Tralee took the spoils but it was a fantastic game and played in the spirit the game should be.
