St Paul’s U16 Ladies reach All-Ireland Final!

Congratulations to St Paul’s Under 16 Ladies who defeated Loreto Secondary School, Fermoy, in the Semi-Final of the All-Ireland by a scoreline of 2-11 – 3-07.

Played in Johnstown, County Roscommon, Loreto Secondary School started the better of the two teams as they scored a goal and a point in the opening exchanges to lead by four points with ten minutes gone.

However, St Paul’s responded from this with Aimee Mackin kicking two points in quick succession to get St Paul’s on the scoresheet.

The rest of the first half was tightly matched, but it was Loreto Secondary who went in leading at half time by a scoreline of 2-03 – 1-03.

The second half was again very tightly matched, and half way through the second half St Paul’s took the lead for the first time of the match and lead by one point.

Further points by St Paul’s ladies put them four points in front, but a late goal in injury time from Loreto Fermoy reduced the deficit to only one point, although this was not enough as St Paul’s held on to win the game.

Final score: St Paul’s, Bessbrook 2-11   Loreto Secondary School, Fermoy 3-07

St Paul’s will now play in the U16 ‘A’ All-Ireland Final in the coming weeks, with date and opponents to be confirmed.
