The girls from Corballa went down with the final bounced ball in this excellent final. When the girls look back they will realise that their failure to score in the first half and too many wides cost them the title.
In the first half we were very sluggish and second to the ball however the brillant tackling by our backs Catherine Rogan, Celine Gallagher, Aoife Meenaghan, Josina Linka and keeper Marie Cahill kept the team in it. When the half time whistle blew we trailed 3 v 1.
From the throw in Aoibhe Barrins caught it and drove through the defence to score the first point for Corballa. From the resulting kickout Amy Cawley-Fox got another score. Moylough went up the field and scored a point. Lauren Cawley punched a point after very strong running by Aoife Durkan who carried a lot of ball in either half. Again Moylough opened up the score advantage but good work by Amy Ruane saw Sarah Flynn fouled and Aoibhe Barrins scored from the free. With 2 minutes to go Amy Cawley Fox put over the equaliser.
In the last minute the both sides tried their hardest to get a winner and just when it looked like the game would be heading for a replay, a long range effort from midfield by Moylough bounced up and rolled over the crossbar for the winning score. The team sunk to their knees as the final whistle blew, but they tried their best and on the day it just was not enough. Thanks to Mr.Keane and Mr.Fogarthy for their efforts in getting the team to the final.
