FT: St Colmcilles B 2.9 Rathkenny/Slane 4.10
HT: St Colmcilles B 1.4 Rathkenny/Slane 2.5
An entertaining game for the spectators with Cilles just about staying in touch with R/S against the strong breeze in the first half. Rathkenny/Slanes forwards were very clinical and secured the win.
The game started with a bang as R/S opened with a goal in the first minute. Sheena then converted a penalty for Cilles in the 3rd. Ellie and Sheena added two more points before R/S replied with two points and a second goal in the 15th. Ellie added another two points while R/S tagged on three more points to close out the half.
Cilles started the second half brightly and Sheena’s brace in the first minute closed the gap to two points. However those R/S forwards found their range and replied with 1.1. Laura stormed through for a goal in the 10th and Sheena with another point in the 14th were Cilles last scores for 15 minutes. R/S then reeled off a goal and four points. Caoimhe W and Jayne with a point each ended the match.
We wish Rathkenny/Slane all the best in the final and will now turn our focus to the Masita Cup and Championship.
