Monaleen 6-6 Ceapagh-rua 3-13

A very close encounter between two very good teams in Boher on Thursday to decide who would qualify for the U16 League final. Playing against the wind Monaleen were 3 points ahead at half time and looked to be the better team. However Monaleen could not get far ahead and a late pointed free from Ceaparua, a combination of Murroe Boher & Cappamore, meant that extra time was required. Monaleen were under pressure throughout extra time and if not for a fantastic performance from Grainne Fullen at full-back the game would have been lost. In the last minute of the second period Caoimhe Lyons who scored 4-4 on the night struck a great goal to win it. Another great performance from this team who have now qualified for 4 county finals in 4 years U14 & U16.

Team: Claire Kelly; Nora Farrell; Emer Nelson; Les Ivory, Grainne Fullen; Aoife Hogan; Laura Enright; Niamh Doyle(0-1); Megan O Meara; Ciara Wiley; Eileen Russell (capt.); Nicole Sheehan; Aisling Doyle(0-2); Laura Griffin; Laura Phelan; Caoimhe Lyons (4-4); Aine Hegarty (1-0)
