In the second league game of the campaign St Mary’s senior ladies faced a very strong Robert Emmet’s team. In a tightly fought first half Catherine Mailey and Ethna Cranwell were superb for the home side as they took a narrow lead into the break. In the second half St Mary’s started very strongly, the introduction of Brid Mc Connell and Ciara Foy strengthening the forward line. Stephani Friel imposed herself on the game and ran out top scorer with a personal tally of 1-3. Despite a late push from the visitors St Mary’s held on for an excellent victory. Final score: St. Marys 1 8: Robert Emmets 0 7.
