A much weakened Club Ladies team travelled to Dublin to take on Division 3 South side Lucan Utd. in the second round of the DWSL Intermediate Cup recently but came away on the wrong end of a 5-2 scoreline despite much effort from the entire team. They travelled with more than half the regular starters unavailable through injury, holiday, work commitments & were unable to make an impression on the host team.
They were not helped by some very peculliar decisions by the referee throughout the game which served to make their task much harder.
Sabrina Gibney, Niamh Holmes & Aoife Gorman all impressed. Karen Ball equalised for Celtic in the first period but they went in trailing 1-2 at the break. Lucan added three more goals in the second half & Melissa Boland scored a late consolation for Celtic.
