Barryroe 1-10 Erins Own 0-10

Barryroe was successful in winning the Minor C Championship Final in Cloughduv today in a close encounter with Erins Own.

Our opening score was a pointed free from Róisín Ní Bhuachalla, followed by a point from play from Ciardha McCarthy and then another point from Róisin Ní B following hard work by Tara Fleming. The sides were level 03 points each at the end of the first water break.

Barryroe had a strong second quarter with points from Róisín Ní B and a crucial goal from Ciardha McCarthy which resulted in Barryroe leading 1-05 to 0-04 at half time. Barryroe defence held out well despite pressure from Erins Owns and Caoimhe Ní Bhuachalla made some very important saves.

The second half started with some further points from Róisín Ní B and captain Róisín McCarthy. Barryroe brought on some substitutions to give fresh momentum as Erins Own were still applying pressure on the Barryroe goal but Caoimhe Ní Bhuachalla was still depriving them of getting a goal. Another great point from Róisín Ní B relieved the situation and at the second water break, there was a goal between the sides.

In the final quarter, the girls were defending their lead and scores were hard to come by with both teams trading points with frees. At the final whistle, there was great relief and rejoicing when the final whistle was blown by the Referee as Barryroe came out on top with a winning score of 1-10 to 0-10.

The Shirley Murphy Cup was presented to the Captain Róisín McCarthy and Player of Match was awarded to Caoimhe Ní Bhuachalla.
