Feohanagh added 4 points before the game finished but Murroe Boher through Lisa Leonard added 1-01 to leave the final score Murroe Boher 8-15 Feohanagh Castlemajon 2-12. This was a great squad display but special mention to Aisling Regan and Siobhan O Connor in backs who were outstanding. Aoife and Roisin O Malley ably assisted by Niamh Holmes and Louise Crowley kept Feohanagh under tremendous pressure all night and the introduction of Anna Ryan helped maintain this momentum. Niamh Richardson with a personal tally of 0-05 was everywhere and Shauna Ryan turned in another performance way beyond her years. The forwards all performed well with particular mention to Alannagh Russell and Michelle Norris who set up numerous scores. The introduction of Aimee O Brien, Lisa Leonard and Andrea Crowe helped keep the pressure on the Feohanagh Castlemahon defence. Susan O Brien had an excellent game in goals culminating in a fine penalty save in the final minute. Overall a very good result. There is one game remaining in the group phase v Oola on Friday evening at Boher pitch, throw in at 7 pm and with qualification for the county semi final assured we are hoping for another good performance.
