Masita Shield Semi-final St Colmcilles B vs Ballivor Thursday 6th September 2018
St Colmcilles started well in this very open and entertaining game but Ballivor’s power and clinical shooting ensured that they progress to the shield final. Despite the first 20 minutes being a joy to watch for Cilles fans, Ballivor started to make their shots count towards the end of the first half coming from behind to finish the half ahead. Despite eking out goals from only half chances (see Alannah Boland below) Cilles were unable to stem the tide of Ballivor threat and ultimately lost this semi final game to the better side.
