Buncrana 4-4 Milford 1-11
Our ladies had a much tighter affair than our men in their championship semi final in Burt against Milford on Sunday morning.
The first half saw both teams exchanging scores in what was an extremely tough opening 30 minutes where the teams were level 3 different times.
Buncrana went in a half time 1 point ahead, Buncrana 1-2 Milford 0-4
The opening 10 minutes of the second half saw Milford take control of the game, when they scored 1-2 before our girls registered a reply with another goal of their own. Milford then kept chipping over the points to take the lead by 3 points.
But great determination and drive from our girls saw them regain the lead by 4 points with 5 minutes to go. Milford weren’t ready to throw in the towel just yet and they kept coming at the girls looking to break down the defense and push on for the win. Thankfully, after holding out through 8 minutes injury time, our girls ran out 2 point winners.
That see the girls through to the Intermediate Championship Final on Sunday 22nd September with the opponent, venue and time to be confirmed.
