Boardsmill 4-14
St Michael’s 5-10

Boardsmill had to dig deep to hold off a strong challenge from an impressive St Michael’s side in their Ladies SFC opener at Martry on Monday evening.

After a slow start which included the concession of two goals, Boardsmill settled and with Aoife Flynn blasting two goals and Ciara Ashe adding a third they moved into a 3-10 to 2-6 half-time lead. After the break Laura Dempsey added a fourth goal as Boardsmill looked comfortable. However, St Michael’s rallied again and inspired by Gillian Bennett they notched three goals to set up a tense finale, but Boardsmill held on with excellent displays from Laura Bagnall, Helen Regan, Dempsey, Cliona Murray, Emma Troy and Laura Griffin.

Boardsmill - E Murray; A Guy, C Murray, S Kennedy; E Troy, M Hegarty, M Doran; L Bagnall, H Regan (0-1); D Dempsey (0-2), L Dempsey (1-6), L Griffin (0-3); M Murray, C Ashe (1-2), A Flynn (2-0).
