The Blackhall ladies travelled to Oldcastle on Saturday in what proved to be tough encounter for the side.
Oldcastle started off with the first score of the match as Blackhall failed to make an impact in the first few minutes. With the introduction of Grainne Ryan, the Blackhall defence began to have a steady control blocking every chance Oldcastle could take. With a strong midfield support from Kate Murphy, the Blackhall ladies soon began to get their rhythm. Her strong spirit and leadership skills, she began to rally the team leaving things tied, neck and neck at half time.
Unfortunately the second half of this match was to be dominated by the Oldcastle side with their impressive pace and aim. Blackhall started to lose their composure leading to missed chances and miss placed passes. Even the windy conditions couldn’t help the Blackhall side to score resulting in this match going in Oldcastle’s favour.
