It was a tough physical game that saw Moorefield win out at the final whistle with a score line of Eire Og 1.06 to Moorefield 4.10. The game began with both teams fighting hard for procession, Moorefield after a few missed chances were first on the scoreboard with a well taken point from Dearbhail Kelly.

Dearbhail Kelly scored another point for Moorefield in the first few minutes of the game. Moorefield seemed hungry for a goal but were denied by some great goal keeping from Aisling Delaney. After a great play by the Moorefield centre half forward line of Ciara Conaty, Derbhail and Serena Donnelly the ball was sent it to the waiting full forward Laura Hannon. Laura Hannon took a cracking shot at goal , Aisling Delaney could not get her hurl to and it hit the back of the net for Moorefield’s first goal. Eire Og’s first score of the match came shortly after this with Muireann Tutty putting a fine point over the bar. Moorefeild seemed to find their stride and some great plays ensued from their forward line to see them add two more points from Dearbhail Kelly and smashing goal from Ciara Conaty just before half time.
