Girls’ Soccer Teams Reach Latter Stages of the Leinster League


The CNI Senior girls had a fantastic run in the Leinster League this season, eventually being narrowly defeated 2 - 1 at the quarter final stage against All Ireland champions Scoil Chroist Ri from Portlaoise. The CNI girls had the better chances during the game but were denied further goals due to fantastic saves by the Portlaoise keeper and the woodwork. Louise Murray found the net for CNI with a headed goal after a magical cross from Republic of Ireland international Ellie Ferguson. Ellie has had a fantastic season for CNI finishing top goal scorer with 12 goals. Ellie was backed up by outstanding performances over the season from Republic of Ireland international Katie Burdis. Katie was the outstanding player in both the quarter final and the previous round. Aisling Berney, Robyn McEvoy and Rebecca Gaffrey were also key to the fantastic run the girls had this season. 


The CNI under 15 girls had a heartbreaking penalty defeat against St Mary's Glasnevin last week in their Leinster League quarter final. The game finished 1 - 1. Outstanding for CNI were Kayleigh Noonan in goal who came to the girls rescue on many occasions, Sophie Beenham with her speed and tenacity in both defence and midfield and Eva Jean Quinn and Louise Murray up front.   

The CNI First Year girls faced Presentation Wexford last week in their Leinster Quarter Final. The girls dominated the game winning 6 - 3. Louise Murray claimed a hat-trick, while Eva Jean Quinn scored two with Molly Scott getting CNI's sixth goal.

Along with the goal scorers best for CNI were Ella Malone, Abbie Sherlock and Sophie Alright. The girls will now face St Dominican's of Drumcondra in the Semi Final.
