Moycarkey scored 3 points in the first half. The second half saw Borrisoleigh playing against the wind and Moycarkey used this to their advantage, scoring 4 goals in quick succession and 2 points. Mary Bradshaw scored 2 goals in the second half for Borrisoleigh and Nicole Walsh added another 5 points to her tally. Sarah Kinane scored another point in the second half leaving the FINAL SCORE at:
Borrisoleigh 4 – 15 to Moycarkey 4 – 5 . Well done Borris..
