Moyle Rovers replied with a goal from set-play by Eabha Dolan. Cahir continued to push forward with our girls defending resolutely . Cahir kicked two more points but our girls replied with another goal from Eabha Dolan to leave the score at half time 2-0 to 1-5.

However a big blow came five minutes into the second half when a loose ball in the Moyle Rovers goalmouth was toe poked into the net to leave our girls with a huge test ahead. Our girls kept battling and were rewarded with two points from play. Cahir continued to pressurise and this was met with great defensive displays from Isabelle Hoare, Sarah Luttrell and Ellie Franklin . Cahir’s more experienced players combined to strike a great goal in the 14th minute despite the best efforts of Rebecca Acheson Dennehy in goal.
