Kerry lead at the end of the 1st quarter on a score of 2-07 to 0-00.

We introduced Amy Fitzgerald for Naomi Ni She in the 12th minute and she scored in the 14th minute with a point. That point was a Fitzgerald trade mark that she has picked up from her uncle Maurice.
Maria Quirke pointed in the 20th min and Sligo registered the first of their 2 scores in this half in the 24th minute.
With a score from Kerry in every remaining minute of this half from the boots of Nicole O Connor of Ballyduff (1-01) Claire O Sullivan (Kenmare) 3 points and a point each from Sinead Guiney and Megan O Connell, it gave Kerry a half time lead of 3-14 to 0-02.

Kerry made a 2nd change during the half time break and introduced Aine Daly for Claire O Sullivan and Daly switched with Michelle O Connor our goal keeper who went to the centre forward and contributed 4 points on the day from that position.
Eilish Lynch took her goal and a point in all of 3 minutes, further points from Michelle O Connor with 4 points and Amy Fitzgerald with a goal and a point, Megan Buckley, Sinead Guiney, Megan O Connell and Nicole O Connor gave Kerry a lead at the end of the 3rd qtr Kerry 5-22 to 2 points.

Leanne Mangan was introduced for Megan O Connell who had just contributed with a another goal and this game was over as a contest.
Sligo who were beaten in every inch of this field did not lie down, they scored a goal and 2 points in 5 minutes.
But Kerry came back and scored 1-05 with Maria Quirke 1-02 and a point each from Amy Fitzgerald and Michelle O Connor.
we ran out on a scorel ine of Kerry 6-27 to Sligo 1-04.
