score says everything. Clare were out to
pay back Down from preventing them going
through to the National Junior League
Finals and they did so in great style.
first score of the game came from
Ballycran’s Catherine McGourty in the 6th
minute but Clare’s Corrina Rosengrave
secured a goal and this was followed by
another 2 points by Catherine which all
came from frees. By the time half time came
the score was Clare 1.5 Down 0.5.
Down did not play at all in the second
half. Their only point of this half came
from Liatroim’s Kelly O’Higgins who was
brought on in the closing minutes of the
Clare out played and out manoeuvred
Down. The Mourne Ladies played miserably
and it was a long road home for them as
the final score was Clare 4:11 Down 0:6.
