Match Report:Ladies Football: Giles Cup M.I.C.L V UUJ
In a match played in very difficult conditions at a neutral venue in Blanchardstown, Dublin, Mary Immaculate College took on UUJ in the Giles Cup. Mary I started well and raced into a 3 point lead in the opening quarter, with the dominant midfield pairing of Sarah Harrington and Fiona Morrissey providing the platform for most of these early attacks. The conditions played a large part in this game and a strong breeze made shooting particularly difficult. This contributed in no small way to the twelve wides accrued by Mary I who went into the half time break leading by 3 points having been aided by the breeze in the first half. Following the restart the Mary I girls were facing into a stiff breeze and adopted a short passing possession game which required an enormous amount of endevour in what was an awful day for football. In fact, at one point in the second half the referee briefly considered abandoning the match, such were the conditions. However, the Mary I girls battled hard and despite the concession of a second goal midway through the second half which left them trailing by 4 points, they responded magnificently scoring 1-1 in the last five minutes to salvage a well deserved draw from this game.
Giles Cup: Mary I V Trinity College Dublin
Senior Football: Trench Cup Quarter Final
Letterkenny I.T 1-13 - Mary I 1-8
Mary I suffered defeat in this game played in Ballyhaunis, Co.Mayo aginast Letterkenny I.T. A feature of this match was the strong breeze which had a major effect on the final outcome. Ironically, Mary I played far better against the breeze and went in at half time leading by three points and looking as though they were in a very strong position facing into the second half. However, Mary I were left to rue a five minute period at the beginning of the second half when they conceeded a goal and two points despite having the advantage the breeze. This meant that Letterkenny now held the lead which they never relinquished despite a brave effort from the Mary I effort from the Mary I lads.
