DUBLIN 3 07 ARMAGH 1 12
Dublin juniors recorded their first win in the league against Armagh in Naomh Mearnog.Dublin seemed poised for victory at half-time,when they led 2 04 to 1 04,having played against a stiff breeze-thanks to goals from Hannah Larmon and Nathalie Behan.
In the second half,Armagh shook off the effects of the long bus journey and dominated for long spells.Goals from Aoife O’Leary(D) and Niamh McGeown(A)kept the crowd on their toes.A hand injury forced Dublin’s Amy Murphy out of the game when she was playing well at centre forward. Collette McSorley(A)was was deadly from placed balls scoring four frees and three 45s.The winning Dublin point was scored by Rachel Costello-a peach from 60 yards.
A pleasing aspect,from a Dublin point of view was the fact that all six forwards scored.
Dublin : Nathalie Behan 1-01,Aoife O’Leary 1-00,Hannah Larmon 1-00,Rachel Costello 0-02(1 45),Mairi Moynihan,Miriam Twomey,Amy Murphy and Aisling Fogarty 0-01 each.
