U14S GIRLS FIRST EVER LD CUP FINAL WIN

On Saturday afternoon the Under 14 Argo Girls (a combination of Arklow RFC and Gorey RFC) contested the Leinster Development League Final in Wicklow rugby club against a strong Kilkenny Side. 

This was a massive achievement for the girls as at the start of the season Gorey and Arklow only had four under 14 girls each. 

After a slight delay due to an injured ref the game kicked off. Kilkenny started strong with some big carries from their pack but it was the Argo girls who defended tirelessly and counter attacked and went over three times before half time to lead 15-0 at the break. 

After the break the nerves steadied and the Argo girls started to play and show their skills with some great attacking play racking up two more tries before Kilkenny got over for a try. But the Argo girls were not finished and in the last two minutes they scored again with one of the best passages of play they have played all season. 

When the final whistle went there were tears of joy for all the hard work they had put in over the long hard season to make things even more memorable the Ireland's women’s rugby player and a hero to the Girls, Sene Naoupu, presented the medals and cup to them 

Final score 34-5
