Galway Ladies maintain pole position

Galway Ladies remain the only unbeaten side in division two of the Tesco Home Grown NFL after extending their winning run to six.

Their latest victims were Meath who were easily overcome by 7-13 to 1-8 in Ashbourne on Sunday.

Now with 18 points from their six outings, Galway have forged a six-point gap on second-place Westmeath, and boast a superior 110 points difference - some 81 points clear of their nearest rivals.

On Sunday it took Galway some time to get into their stride with Meath racing into a six-point lead.

However a goal from Annette Clarke after Gillian O’Connor was pulled down by the Meath goalkeeper settled the visitors and they never looked back. Two minutes later Catriona Cormican had scored Galway's second goal with Clarke and Eilis Gannon adding to tally.

O’Connor grabbing the third goal after Barbara Hannon won the ball from the Meath defence, and before the break O’Connor set up Hannon who rattled the back of the net, putting Galway 4-02 to 0-07 ahead.

A fifth goal, scored by Eilis Gannon, set the tone for the second half. O’Connor grabbed her second goal and Galway finished with Louise Ward completing the goal haul.
