Mount Anville have begun their 2018/2019 Leinster season with an emphatic win over perennial rivals, St. MacDara's. A valiant victory was achieved on a balmy October afternoon, which saw scintillating scores match the hot and humid conditions.

Captained on the day by Dara Kelly, Mount Anville took little time in finding the rhythm which had seen them reach the Leinster final the previous year. An early goal from Alex Bedford in response to 2 points from the home team saw the Mounties grow in poise and stature, and they soon took a vicious hold of the game and never let up. Indeed Bedford was the classic "Fox in the Box" poaching a hat-trick of goals from open play, and showing a real desire to take the game by the scruff of the neck. She was ably supported by the 1-2 knockout punch of Ella and Lauren D'Arcy who consistently found space in the attacking third and effortlessly flexed their attacking muscles.

This attacking front was only achieved through the solid defensive foundations marshalled with a calm resolve by Carrie McGrath, who stood resolute in the heart of the defence. The old stallworths of the team showed their true grit, but it was the new additions to the team in the form of the newly promoted second years who can really be proud of their efforts. Brook Tynan, making her debut as starting goalkeeper, was resolute in defence, and like an archer with her kickouts. Karolina Mezynska was a tenacious titan in the half-back line, ensuring that no quarter was given to the opposition.

It was a game where team spirit truly shone, and it serves as an excellent platform to build for success. Next opponents are Our Ladies' Terenure.
