Dublin IT will meet IT Tralee in the final of the Purcell Cup after they came from behind to sneak a late win over Mary Immaculate College in their semi-final at CIT on Saturday.
Captain Joelenne Hoary was the heroine for DIT, as she scored three goals, including the late one to put the Dublin college ahead, with Mary I having led for a lot of the game.
From as early as the fourth minute, when Ashley Lovett found the net for the Limerick side from a narrow angle, Mary I had a cushion for a lot of the first half, and when Margaret Howard found the net, they led 2-3 to 0-3, frees from Niamh Mulcahy adding to the goals.
Two green flags from Hoary helped DIT to be level at the break however, as the sides retired at 2-4 apiece.
Three points on the trot from Mulcahy, RoisÝn McMahon and Lovett put Mary I back into the lead at the start of the second half, but DIT kept plugging away, helped by Jane Dolan’s accuracy from placed balls and points from Cathy Bowes.
Hoary’s hat-trick goal in the final 10 minutes put them level, and though Mulcahy put Mary I in front again, Dolan was on hand to clinch the game for DIT in injury time.
Another to play well for DIT were Karen Mullins, while SinÚad Quinlan, Kate O’Mahony and captain Leah Weste lost no honour in defeat for Mary I.
