The Naomh Fionnbarra Ladies also picked up their first league point with a 4-8(20) to 4-8(20) draw game v St. Patrick’s Ladies in Lordship, well done girls. A misty damp spin to Lordship was on the cards for the Barrs Ladies this morning. With the Barrs on the hunt for win number one of the season and St. Pats looking for two wins from two, both teams were out to prove a point. The game started with the St. Pats on the front foot with a very early point by Kate Flood but it didn’t take the Barrs too long to find their feet. Leanne Sharkey came close but took the post with her shot however rebound fell to Hullen and to the back of the net the ball went. Pats came close shortly after with a mix up between stand in keeper Devlin and Katie McArdle, however the girls cleared the ball and prevented a score. Good play between Hullen and Leanne Sharkey which lead to a point for the Barrs with a goal by the Laura Sharkey on her first game of the season. Points continued for the Togher girls with Hullen and Leanne scoring again. Laura Sharkey was through for another goal attempt however this time a block prevent her from making it two goals for herself. The forward trio of Hullen and the two Sharkeys again bagged another point each for themselves with St. Pats coming back with a point and a saved goal attempt. Denise Moynagh and Jenny Devlin also got themselves on the score sheet before half time with a point a piece with St Pats coming back with a goal. Strong midfield work between Rosin Osborne and Amy Grant lead to a pass to Moynagh who again got herself on the score sheet this time with a goal. Half Time Score Finbarrs 3-8 St. Pats 1-4.
