Garrycastle 4-8 Mullingar Shamrocks 0-7

The ladies season kicked off on Sunday with our Division 3 side playing an away game against Mullingar. Garrycastle faced a stiff breeze in the first half so needed to be firm in defence and this they did with Megan Mc Cormack controlling fullback and Rebecca Norris pulling off fine saves when called on. Orla Breathnach made welcome return and was a great support to our young defenders who stood firm and held Mullingar to 0-5 points in the first half. With Lisa Fitzpatrick and Katie Mc Donald working extremely hard and pushing forward Ciara Mc Manus found the net to leave us 2points down at the break. 

With the wind to our backs Garrycastle put on the pressure early in the second half and AnneMarie Donoghue made no mistake finding the net to edge us ahead. From here on Garrycastle dominated, the defence held well and made great runs and fed well into the forwards who displayed great skills and worked the play and took their scores to win out comfortably.
