St Helen’s were unfortunate to lose out by two points to Mostrim in what was a close encounter on the evening of 24th June in the opening round of the senior championship. St Helen’s opened the game with two frees from Laura Burke followed by a goal from Orla Noonan. However Mostrim replyed with a goal minutes later. Consistent fouling on Orla Noonan allowed St Helen’s to lead as Laura Burke converted three more frees before the end of the first half. Our full back line done superb to keep Mostrim out while goal keeper Sinead Corrigan played exceptional despite recieving a shoulder injury. The team’s were even at half time with a scoreline of 1:5 to 1:5. Mostrim opened the scoring in the second half converting three points however St Helen’s soon replyed with a Patricia O’Hara goal. St Helen’s were left with 14 players while Mostrim lost two players who were also sin binned. Mostrim then converted two points however Laura Burke leveled the sides with two more frees. In the last few minutes of the game Mostrim added two points to the scoreboard allowing them to overcome St Helen’s. The girls will play Clonguish in the next round of the Championship on the 17th of July.
