St. Louis 4-12 St. Columba’s 1-7

St. Louis Convent, Monaghan retained their
Ulster U19 A title on Friday last, when they defeated St.
Columba’s, Glenties 4-12 to 1-7. In reality the score doesn’t
reflect the closeness of the tie as the champions scored
two goals in injury time. St. Louis led at the break 1-5
to 0-4 with their goal coming from Bonnie Fleming. All of
St. Columba’s first half scores came from free’s with the
excellent Aoife Mc Donnell sending over three of them. At
the start of the second half Carol Graceland found the net
for the Donegal side, however St. Louis responded with a
goal of their own through Aine Mulligan. St. Columba’s did
throw everything at the champions but the Monaghan defence
stood firm. In the final quarter St. Louis grew stronger
and in the dying minutes Catherine West and Aine Mulligan
both found the net.
