Loreto College Coleraine 3-06 : 4-15 Our Lady and St Patrick’s College Knock

Loreto faced a very strong Knock side today at Loreto in their second game of the campaign.  Despite an excellent team performance, the Loreto girls eventually lost to the All-Ireland 7s finalists by a margin of 12 points.  There is still much to play for, as the girls now enter the Shield competition and are among the favourites to win.  Loreto’s all-stars, Kirsty and Tiegan, had excellent performances today and in reality, kept the scoreline as close as possible.  The defence of Caitlin, Sarah, Kate, Orlagh, Sorcha and Roisin battled extremely hard with a lot of the girls given the unenviable task of ‘man-marking’ Knock’s danger players, a task they did with enthusiasm and tenacity.  The midfield duo of Eimear and Claire worked tirelessly.  In a game where possession in opposition territory was at a minimum, Naoise, Caite, Courtney, Megan, Dearbhla and Tiegan all made the most of every opportunity they had.

Loreto Scorers: Tiegan 1-4, Eimear 1-1, Courtney 1-0, Caite 0-1
