The Kilmena minor ladies hosted Louisburgh in the final round of the championship on Wedneday evening 02/Aug. Low on numbers due to illness and injury, Kilmeena could only field 13 players with the help of the U16 girls. The Kilmeena ladies got off to a bright start scoring the first point before Katie Moran snr scored a cracking goal from well out the field. Louisburgh started to fight back chipping away at the Kilmeena lead. Eventually the Louisburgh ladies took the lead and never looked back. However the Kilmeena ladies fought to the final whistle. Some wonderful defending by Laura O’Grady, Siofra Hughes, Aine Gallagher, Katie Moran jnr and Abbie Quinn along with some brilliant saves from Ellen O’Toole kept the scores to a minimum. Another cracking goal from Katie Moran and Amy Carney along with points from Lisa Hastings, Katie and Amy kept the score board operator busy. Kilmeena were always threatening going forward, with some penetrating runs from Leah Walsh, Katie Moran snr and Lisa Hastings keeping the Louisburgh defence busy. It was not to be for the Kilmeena ladies but a fantastic performance entertained the large crowd in attendance.
Final score Louisburgh 4-16, Kilmeena 3-09.
