Ladies Premier Cup Semi Final – Ballingarry 3 (O’Gorman 3) Mungret 2

Ballingarry ladies qualified for the Premier cup final following a magnificent comeback from 2 goals down at the break. Mungret took an early lead from a free kick that came back off the post but their forward was on hand to slot home. They added a second on 35 minutes to give themselves a comfortable half time lead.

Ballingarry returned for the second half with all guns blazing with Joanne O’Gorman cutting the deficit to the minimum following neat play. The goal gave Ballingarry a great lift and it was O’Gorman again that drew the teams level when she struck home from a tight angle. The game was now finely balanced but their never say die attitude stood them well as O’Gorman struck for her hat-trick to seal Ballingarrys passage to the final where they will face Rathkeale.
