Boston Shamrocks v Tir na nOg - July 6

Boston Shamrocks 4-9 Tir na nOg 2-13

The Boston Shamrocks staged a miraculous second half comeback to overturn an eight point half time deficit and run out two point winners over Tir na nOg. Tir na nOg dominated proceedings in the first half and established a 0-8 to 0-11 lead. With the Brighton girls firing on all cylinders, the Shamrocks struggled to compete.

Within five minutes of the restart the Shamrocks had drawn level. Aisling Jennings goaled right from the restart, and almost immediately following the first goal, Louise Collins out another major away. Points from Cathy McEleaney and Jennings brought the sides level, and stunned Tir na nOg. The Shamrocks had the initiative, and a third goal mid-way through the second half from Maria Moolick put the win in sight. Tir na nOg almost came back at the end, trailing by five points a Katie Murphy goal put the Brighton ladies within 2, but time was their enemy – and the Shamrocks friend – and the Shamrocks pull off a tremendous victory.
