Gorey Women Have Convincing Win Over Greystones

The Gorey Senior Ladies took on Greystones in what was a top of the table clash. 

Gorey were the only unbeaten team in the league going into the game. 

The game started at a ferocious pace and with the first 20 minutes Gorey were 5 tries up with scores coming from Niamh Newens, Ciara Tomkins and a quick hat-trick by Tara Doyle on only her first start in senior rugby.  

The work rate of the Gorey forwards was making life very difficult for the Greystones ladies. Big carries from Shannen Byrne, Maria Breen and Olivia Veal set up a good clean platform for scrum-half Nicola McGrath to work off. 

More tries followed from Anna Nolan, Nicola McGrath and another for Tara Doyle.

Gorey showed their strength in depth and even after emptying their bench they continued to pile on the pressure on the Wicklow natives. 

They finished strong and the last twenty minutes saw Orla Molloy, Triona Murray, Niamh O'Connor and club captain Olivia Veal all cross the line to score. 

The final score Gorey 66 Greystones 0

The Gorey ladies travel to Navan on Sunday the 17th November in their next Leinster league game
