DIVISION 1 LEAGUE
Tues 8 May Cushendall 3-11 Brídíní Óga 3-7
We had a slow start in this game in Cushendall, but once we got into the game we made it very competitive and certainly were in with a chance of draw right until the last point stopped us.
While Cushendall pulled our defence out to leave Bern one-on-one with the full-forward, we still fared well overall and used the half-back line pushing forward to launch our attacks.
In the first half we went 1-3 down before Oonagh opened our account with a goal. Although the ‘Dall responded with two points and Laoise pulled one back for us, we hit a good spell with two goals from Ashling and another point from Laoise all inside four minutes and took the lead.
However by half-time Orlagh O’Hara had put the ‘Dall a point ahead, 2-7 to 3-3. At the start of the second half, she pointed two quick frees before we got going again with a couple of points.
A Cushendall goal didn’t damper our challenge and we responded with probably our two best points, a long range effort from Caoimhe and an angled shot from Torie.
Not a win tonight, but a good performance and we are progressing very well
