St. Brigid’s 8-8, Strokestown 10-7

Our Pieta House sponsored minor ladies were unlucky to be defeated by Strokestown in the Championship last Thursday in Kiltoom. Despite the final score this was actually a very tight game until the dying minutes with Strokestown securing a late goal and two points to seal their 5 point victory. Brigid’s had a lead of 2 points going in at half time and two early second half goals from Lauren Curran gave us a comfortable lead. However the second half was a goal fest for both sides and Strokestown came out eventual winners.
