County Minor Semi-Final.

Castlebar Mitchels 6 – 8 McHale/ Rovers 4 – 12

Castlebar Mitchell’s enjoyed a much greater return on the score board from the possession in the opening half with the direct running of scorer in chief Niamh Hughes who scored 3-4 of her sides total of 4 -7 in the opening half. McHale/Rovers full forward Sinead Walsh was her sides main threat scoring 2-1 Ailish Keane Caomihe Walsh Lisa Lavelle and Amy Blake scoring the points for McHale/Rovers who were denied a couple of goals chances with great defending by the Mitchell’s defence when they were playing into a stiff breeze. McHale/Rovers were more of threat in front of goal in the second half and came right back into contest and with Sinead Walsh grabbing a goal and six points and Emma Murray also added a point Niamh Hughes was Mitchell’s only scorer in the Second half with 2-1 to her credit and when Ailish Keane cracked home McHale/Rovers goal in the 56th minuet only two points separated the sides. The Mitchell’s defence stood firm to denied their visitors any chance of the goal they needed to win this high scoring and very entertaining County Division 2 League semi-final
