INTERMEDIATE LADIES CHAMPIONSHIP SEMI FINAL – The Ladies’ season concluded on Sunday last as they fell at the semi-final stage of the championship in Annaduff with their opponents, Mohill, recording a 4-8 to 1-8 victory and thus they claimed their place in this year’s decider with St Francis. Out of the blocks early, our girls had 1-1 on the board as a Hannah Farrell goal and a Kelly Howard point had them into their stride. As the half wore on Mohill came more into it and had taken the lead by the end of the first quarter. Aisling Leahy with a pointed free and two Hannah Farrell points from play put our girls back in control. A Mohill purple patch just before the interval which saw them register 2-4 without reply proved to be our girls undoing as the teams entered the break on a scoreline of St/Mary’s/Bornacoola 1-4 Mohill 3-6. A fourth Mohill goal early in the second half left the mountain steeper to climb, but to the girls’ credit they fought on gamely despite the odds stacked against them. Three Aisling Leahy points and one from Sarah Reynolds was to be their only reward in this half hour and while the defence worked extremely hard to hold the Mohill attack to 1-2 across this period of play, the winners had done enough to edge the battle and we congratulate them on their win and wish them the very best of luck in the upcoming decider with championship favourites, St Francis. While the girls’ season has ended we have to compliment the girls for their overall dedication towards training and matches since last February. They claimed the Division 3 League title in July and have made great progress in their step up from winning the Junior Championship last year. They played eleven competitive matches over the season across the league and championship, winning eight and losing in just three. So, hold your heads high and look forward to building on this in 2019 girls! On duty on Sunday last were: Kathy Butler, Cora McCauley, Jasmine Maye, Hannah Reynolds, Enya Guckian, Lorraine Guckian, Emily Reynolds, Kasey Bruen, Alison McKeon, Aisling Leahy (0-4). Sara Crowe, Rachel McGarry, Sarah Reynolds (0-1), Kelly Howard (0-1), Hannah Farrell (1-2), Lauren Hackett, Joanne McGushin, Lisa Guckian, Isabelle Chandler, Ellen Woods, Caroline Guckian and Hannah Bird.
