Ladies League - Division 3 Semi Final

Bornacoola/St Mary's 5-15 Keeldra Gaels 3-5

Congratulations and well done to the girls of Bornacoola/St Mary's who have qualified for the Division 3 League Final following a 5-15 to 3-5 semi-final victory over Keeldra Gaels in sunny conditions in Páirc Naomh Muire on Sunday afternoon last. 

In what was a very competitive match throughout, it was the greater efficiency of the home side's attack, allied to staunch defending that proved the difference between the teams at the end. The girls were out of the blocks early and once they found the range for the first time they converted a greater ratio of scoring chances to carry a 3-9 to 1-3 lead into the interval, goalkeeper Caroline Guckian saving a penalty just before the break. 

To their credit, the Keeldra girls never threw in the towel and provided very stern opposition right to the very end but the girls tagged on a number of second-half scores to keep them at arm's length. The girls will now face a tough test in the final with unbeaten Dromahair providing the opposition. 

This game will be played at a date to be decided later in May. 

On duty on Sunday last were: Caroline Guckian, Cora McCauley, Jasmine Maye, Emily Reynolds, Lorraine Guckian, Enya Guckian, Alison McKeon, Kasey Bruen (1-4), Aisling Leahy (2-3), Sara Crowe (2-2), Hannah Reynolds, Kelly Howard (0-2), Hannah Bird (0-3), Ellen Woods (0-1), Tanya Boyle and Kathy Butler.
