BVC Ladies Football 2012/2013
22nd April 2013
The 2012/13 season saw both junior and senior teams progress well in the LGFA Leinster Schools Championship. Both teams excelled in the group stages and same out on top in both. They then advanced to the quarter final stages with convincing wins for both teams in the knock out stage.
The junior team came up against tough opposition at home to Scoil Dara, Kilcock in their quarter final. It was a bravely fought game for BVC but in the end conditions proved in favour of the Lily Whites of Kildare on the day.
The Senior team travelled to Carlow for their quarter final where they took on Sacred Heart S.S., Tullamore. Sacred Heart S.S. gained a considerable advantage in the first half and although Bridgetown fought valiantly, the climb was insurmountable.
Ladies football within Bridgetown Vocational College has gone from strength to strength in recent years due to invaluable work put in by local clubs such as Kilmore, St. Anne’s, Bannow/Ballymitty and St. Fintan’s. We hope that this success continues in the coming years.
