McHale/ Rovers Win League

McHale/Rovers completed a great year for the club with Division 2 League title and Championship in the space of a few weeks. With five minuets on the clock this victory was slipping away from the North Mayo girls who were trailing Davitts by two points and had a number of chances which were missed but showed great character to keep plugging away despite those missed chances as the game entered injury time Sinead Walsh drove into the Davitts square and shot for goal which was blocked in the goal mouth scramble Ciara Walsh booted the ball to the net to put her side in front by a point and from the kick out Referee Shane Corcoran Blew the full time whistle  much to the elation of McHale/Rovers players and supporters. This was only part of the story of this very exciting and end to end contest Davitts went three point up after fifteen minuets through Katie Melvin Abbiegayle Ronayne and Aoife Meehan Lisa Lavelle pointed in 17 minuet and Niamh Maughan quickly added another Dara Moore Grabbed a goal in the 27th minuet and on the stroke of half time Aoife Meehan converted a penalty to give her side a two points advantage at the break. Just minuets into the new half Dara Moore scored her second goal and Emily Murray added a point. Davitts Abbiegayle Ronayne replied with two points to tie the score then Aoife Meehan scored her second goal and Keely Kearns pointed Lisa Lavelle tacked on a goal and a point to level the score again back came Davitts with a goal from Keely Kearns and a point from Abbiegayle Ronayne in the eighteenth minuet which was their last score Lisa Lavelle and Niamh Maughan reduced the lead with points each.
