Enniskillen Ladies Rugby 1st XV: 0
Queens Ladies Rugby 1st XV: 33
On Sunday Enniskillen Ladies hosted Queens Ladies in the second round of the Rosie Stewart Ulster Cup in good playing conditions at Mullaghmeen.
Enniskillen set down a good platform from the beginning with scrums & line outs working well, allowing the team to put good phases together & make ground on the Queens defence. Mid way through the first half, against the run of play, Queens scored an opportunistic try which may have took the early momentum away from Enniskillen. From there it was nip & tuck between the two sides. Just before the end of the first half Enniskillen were denied a try when Erika Porter was stopped just short of the line.
The teams turned around for the 2nd half with Enniskillen playing into the breeze. Queens’ fitness & level of experience from Division 1 rugby stood them in good stead as they started to take control. The Mullaghmeen girls were trying to attack at every opportunity, however a lapse in concentration in the Skins defence saw Queens punish the home side with 3 tries in quick succession.
Enniskillen had a tremendous team effort throughout and fought to the end against high quality opposition. With key personnel missing through sickness, the performance & determination shown by new players through to the final whistle bodes well for the future of Ladies rugby at Enniskillen.
The next ladies fixture is away to Omagh on 31st January, as the team continue on their quest for league glory. Training continues Tuesday & Thursday, all new players are always welcome. Checkout the Facebook page Enniskillen Ladies Rugby for more details.
