Senior Ladies Football: No Joy in Munster Championship
Following on from their great win in the Senior B County, the Rovers
played Comeragh Rangers (Waterford) in the semi-final of the Munster
Plate Championship on Sunday last in Ballyporeen. On this occassion
victory was not to be. Comeragh Rangers proved to be formidable
opponents moving the ball quickly throughout the field. Comeragh
struck first with two points before Grace Culloty had the Rovers first
point from a free. Midway through the first half disaster struck when
Comeragh bagged three goals in the space of three minutes to open up a
ten point lead. Into the second half the Rovers upped their
performance and scored a few points to reduce the deficit. But two
counter attacks from Comeragh yielded two goals which put the game out
of reach. But the Rovers battled away and were rewarded with a goal
from Grace Culloty.
Final score Comeragh Rangers 5-11 Bride Rovers 1-07
