O’Reilly Nets Stunning Win Over Trosman

In her first European Championships, Edel O’Reilly recorded a sensational win over Israel’s Nicole Trosman in the Irish Cadet Girls match against Israel this evening. Trosman is a seeded player in the Singles event here and is ranked 22 in the European Cadet rankings. To put her achievement into context, O’Reilly from Ballincollig TTC has no current European ranking points and does not appear on the ranking list. She will be thrilled with this victory, despite the fact that Israel fought back to take the match 3:1. The match itself was an intriguing affair, with O’Reilly racing into a 2 sets to love lead before Trosman fought back to set up a final decider. O’Reilly held her nerve to close out the match in the 5th and record what is easily the best result of her career to date.
