Strike for Glory Minor Final 2019
Louth v Donegal
Eglish St. Patricks GAC
5th May 2019
With only a goal separating both teams in the last group game of the competition, this final was expected to be close and eagerly fought and it did not fail. Donegal began the game the stronger with two excellent long-range points from play. However, Louth worked hard and got themselves back in to the game with a goal. Momentum began to swing in Louth’s favour, but Donegal responded by scoring a well worked goal. At the half time Donegal lead by two points.
The second half proved to be exciting end to end play, with excellent skills and talent on show from both teams. It was nip and tuck for the majority of the second half and all in attendance felt we could be heading in to extra time. But Louth prevailed by the narrow of margins.
The final score was Louth 4-02 Donegal 3-04.
Congratulations to both teams and management for and exciting and thrilling final.
Player of the finals went to Niamh Mathews (Louth).
