Beal Bocht 2, Harps 1

In the shock of the season, Beal Bocht got their first win after losing all five other league games. It was Beal Bocht who took the game to the Harps. After 10 minutes, a move from Mary Touhy found Sophia Herlihy, who flicked the ball over to Jennie Rynne, who in turn put the ball into the net. Harps tried to come back with a shot from Sandra Swinburn, but the Beal Bocht defense held them. Just before halftime, Beal Bocht went forward and chipped the ball into the box. It was judged to be a hand ball. Mary McEvoy stepped up, put the keeper the wrong way, and gave Beal Bocht a 2-0 lead.

The second half was a good close encounter with Harps getting on the board on a 20-yard rocket from Alyson Kaye.

Best for Beal Bocht: Jennie Rynne, Mary McEvoy, Pauline Boylan.

Harps: Alyson Kaye, Sandra Swinburne, Miriam Peters.
