Wicklow win Lidl NFL final

Wicklow ladies have beaten Louth in the Lidl NFL division 4 final by 4-17 to 2-08.

After a stuttering start Marie Kealy settled the nerves with the first of her three goals after a great pass from Laurie Aherne.

From that point Louth were never in contention, Wicklow went into the break leading 2-7 to 0-05.

Louth did score a goal early in the second half but it never unnerved a determined Wicklow side.

It was a great all-round team performance but Kealy who went on to add 2-3 after her opening goal was the star of the show.

Subs: A Gorman for Fox (47), A Gillen for Fusciardi, S O’Connor for Deeney, N Baker for Miley (58), R Fagan for Mulhall (60+1).

Wicklow: M Kealy 3-3, M Deeney 1-3 (0-1f), J Kinch 0-5, A Murphy 0-2, L Hogan, C Fox, L Fusciardi, N Baker 0-1 each.
