Ashbourne Women Deliver a Great Home Win!

Ashbourne Rugby Club Womens team played their second match in their Leinster League and their first home game. Playing in front of a great home crowd, they took on DLSP, who were unbeaten coming into this game, having won their first two games.
Fielding a full side of 15, they took an early lead with Kelly Mahon touching down with an unconverted try. Eimear Keaveney scored a second try before DLSP got their only try before halftime for Ashbourne to lead by 10 points to 7 at the break.
After the break Ashbourne really exerted their dominance and three tries by Naoise Smyth gave the home side a comfortable lead. And to round things off just as it started so it ended with a Kelly Mahon try. Ciara-Lee Jenkinson pitched in with a brace of conversions to make the final score 34 points to 7.
The team coach Judy Bobbett said that it was an ”Outstanding performance from the women today, each week we are growing both on and off the field, they are a great group to work with and come down each week eager to learn.
Our sights are focused on taking each game as it comes, we have lots to learn after todays performance, we hope to carry this on to Tallaght in two weeks.”
