Loreto College Coleraine 2-7 : 4-12 St Killian’s College Carnlough

The Loreto girls contested for a long period of the game and sought to take the lead on many occasions.  However, St Killian’s were determined to leave Fr. Healey Park with a win.  The first half was very tight, with neither team giving anything up easily.  The Loreto backline worked extremely hard, pressuring and harrying the St Killian’s forwards any time they crossed into Loreto territory.  A first half goal from Courtney did spur the rest of the Loreto girls for the remainder of the half. 

The second half began similarly to the first, in which both teams had their moments.  St Killians’ ruthless shooting saw them take a substantial lead which Loreto couldn’t reduce despite their best efforts.  A superbly taken consolation goal from Caite was the highlight of this half.  A tough game for Loreto but no doubt the girls will bounce back.
