St. Louise's, Belfast 4-19

The Ballyshannon side lost out to a St. Louise's team who finished really strongly in the final quarter.
Coláiste Cholmcille were a point ahead at the break, 3-5 to 1-9 and were level with 43 minutes on the clock, but then the Belfast girls hit 1-6 on the trot to making a winning break.
But this was a very good performance from the Ballyshannon College, who had very strong performances from Shelly Loughlin, Mary Flora Scott and especially Brianna Maher at full-forward, who notched four goals for his side.
St. Louise's were powered by three exceptional players in midfielers Emily Bannon and Katlyn Friars as well as centre half-forward Nicole Jones.
Coláiste Cholmcille's first half scorers were Mary Flora Scott with 1-2, Brianna Maher 2-0, Megan McEniff and Amy Hyndman 0-1 each.
In the second half there were points from Maeve Rooney, Niamh Hoey and Mary Flora Scott while Brianna Maher chipped in with two more goals.
