Fr. Murphy's Ladies Footballers continued their winning ways on Sunday last, 13th October, with a hard fought 3-04 to 1-04 win over a gallant
Holloway Gaels team in the Mary Feehan Cup Final.
The match at Greenford was played in terrible conditions, with wind and rain throughout the whole game. The girls in purple and gold, who were
short a few regulary, opened the scoring with a goal before missing a few chances. Holloway struck back before Murphy's got a second goal from
the penalty spot. The match was delicately poised at half time, with the score 2-02 to 1-02 in the Murhpy's favour.
The second half was again a tight affair with both sides trying desperately to control a slippery football, but Fr. Murphy's got the upper hand and
ran out winners.
Fr. Murphy's: Elaine Hayes, Mary Bennett, Sinead White, Eimear McGann, Rosie Cully, Laura Power, Aoibhinn McKenna, Sarah Burns, Lisa O'Keeffe,
Stephanie Elliot, Charlotte Faughnan, Lorraine Dolan, Sonya Maher, Laura Kelly, Sinead Daly. Subs: Hilary Duncan, Aoife Linnane, Emma Rochford.
Following their win in the All Britain Championship the previous week, the girls continue to train hard for the All Ireland quarter final against the
Ulster champions (either Glen of Derry or Milford of Donegal) due to be played in London on Saturday November 2nd.
