Heywood C.S.Ballinakill 5-12 St. Fergals Rathdowney 1-6

Heywood continued on their strong run in this years championship with a convincing win over St. Fergals. The one sided score line does not give a true reflection of the good defensive work by the Rathdowney girls. Mary Reilly opened the scoring for Heywood with a good point before Martha and Noirín Kirwan added one each. Rathdowney defended well before Cuddy and Eilish Finn added points.

Heywood then started to apply the pressure before Mary Reilly scored two quick goals and Lisa Dunne added two points. Heywood moved even further ahead with points from Martha Kirwan, Jessie Curley and Natasha Cuddy. A goal fron Fiona O Grady ensured that the saints were not giving up as she crashed the ball into the back of the net.

During the second half Heywood missed a lot of early chances with Fergals hitting the post three times. Orla Dwyer yet again made alot of excellent saves for Heywood, while Niamh Fitzpatrick cleared the line and distributed good ball to wing half backs Amy and Lynn O’ Callaghan. Jessie Curley, Noirín Kirwan and Mary Reilly added points before A Phelan replied for St. Fergals.

Jessie Curley got the final point for Heywood to finish off a fine display by both teams.
