The long journey to the Cross in Killygordan resulted in a hard fought win for the young ladies team today. Fielding a much depleted team due to holidays and work commitments our girls didn't shrink and took the game by the scruff of the neck from the first whistle. In a very entertaining first half the visiting side went in at half time leading by one point.
HT: Red hughs 0-05 Naomh Muire 1-03.
At the start of the second half Reds Hughs piled on the pressure and scored 2-01 to three points from Naomh Muire. Naomh Muire were now trailing by four points with ten minutes remaining. A switch to the forward line for Erica Hanna seen her notch her first of two goals and from then on Naomh Muire piled on the pressure to run out winners by a 2 goal margin. A superb team performance today seen the ladies take the first leg of the championship. Rich reward for the young team. Well done to all involved.
