The senior women’s rugby team make a winning comeback

Posted: 4:01 PM September 29, 2022

Enniskillen’s newly formed senior women’s side were in Premiership action on Sunday afternoon against visiting Omagh at Mullaghmeen.

After three seasons without senior rugby at the club, the early stages were edgy with the teams exchanging blows.

A run and an exquisite try from Farrah Cartin McCloskey put the Fermanagh girls on the scoreboard and installed them in the game. The conversion hit the post and bounced back to leave it 5-0.

The backs were really starting to appreciate the conditions and that was demonstrated after crash balls from Moya Hill, Sophie Barrett and Aisling Maguire resulted in a fastball for new scrum-half Sarah Mullen who fired wide at Cora Balfour , then on Zara Flack, who bypassed the defense to pass behind the posts of 22.

The try was converted by Cartin McCloskey to open a 12-0 lead.
