On Saturday afternoon at Woodlands our Senior Ladies produced a fantastic display of football, seeing off an extremely strong St. Paul’s B team, full of county experience in key positions. After a slow start the Glenavy girls picked themselves up establishing a 3 point lead at half time. 3-05 to 3-02.
The second half was played against a strong wind and the ball had to be run out of defence on numerous occasions. But a crucial goal from Grainne McLaughlin helped establish an 8 point lead going into the final few minutes. St. Paul’s were relentless in the closing stages making it 3 points between the sides but our girls held on, winning 5-09 to 4-09 as Gerard Duggan blew the final whistle.
We go onto the final on Saturday 12th September at Musgrave. Throw in at 6pm.
Good luck to all the team and management!
