2017-04-09 Avoca HC v Wicklow HC

The Leinster Hockey Division 9-10 Cup Final between Avoca Ladies 4s and Wicklow Ladies 1s at Grange Road. Mid-way through the first half Avoca took the lead following a great run and sprint by Emma Meir which was crossed first time to Hilary Long who expertly dispatched to open the scoring. Wicklow levelled with a well worked corner just before half-time. Both sides had chances in the second half but neither side could take advantage. The game ended 1-1 and entered into extra-time which flew by with no goals scored. Penalty flicks decided the encounter (see video at foot of page)…
