Crescent took the lead in the first half, after the ball was seemingly going wide but hit the post, travelled behind the goalkeeper and was calmly tapped in then by the waiting Crescent attackers.

From here, Scoil Mhuire stepped up and began to assert dominance. Katie O’Keefe was exceptional in midfield up against the Crescent two central midfielders while Amy Nangle and Emily Nolan was superb in snuffing out any counter attacks. Ella Collins pulled a goal back to tie the game at half-time.

The second half continued much the same with SMC dominating possession but Crescent always dangerous on the break. Sally Boland has to make two good saves to keep the tie even for SMC before Poppy McKeown and then Susie Nolan stepped up to finish the tie off in the closing 10 minutes.
