However, Milltown/Listry took over for the remainder of the first quarter and led by 2-3 to 0-1 after 15 minutes – two goals for Ella Teahan & points for Teahan, Lorraine Kennedy and Meadhbh Rochford (free) giving their side a commanding lead. Meanwhile, two saves from goalkeeper Laura Brennan kept Rangers in the game. Fodhla Houlihan added three well taken points for Rangers, before Ailís Murphy added one at the other end. Norina O’Callaghan & Fodhla Houlihan pointed for Rangers to reduce the difference between the sides, but Ella Teahan added the final point of the half for Milltown/Listry to put them four ahead at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-6, Milltown/Listry 2-5. Laune Rangers came out flying on the restart, as Fodhla Houlihan hit the net for a great goal, while Nicole Moriarty pointed a free soon after to leave the minimum between the sides. However, Milltown/Listry rallied and their added experience soon shone through. By the three-quarter mark, they had added an unanswered 1-7 with points from Lorna Hickey, Caoimhe Evans, Mairead Lehane, Meadhbh Rochford & Ella Teahan (3) supplementing a Meadhbh Rochford goal. With 15 minutes to play, Milltown/Listry led by 3-12 to 1-7. Laune Rangers made full use of their replacements bench and gave game time to their full panel before the game was over. Alanna O’Sullivan applied a great finish for a second Rangers goal & while Lorna Griffin added a point, while Milltown/Listry added three more points before the final whistle. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 2-8, Milltown/Listry 3-15. Milltown/Listry captain Lorna Hickey was presented with the B Shield by the person after whom the competition is named, Mary Jo Curran.
