Feile Division Three final
St Jude’s 4-0
Skerries Harps 1-0
ST JUDE’S started as they meant to go on as a sixth minute goal set the tone for a final goalfest that ultimately led to the Dublin Division 3 camogie Feile title at O’Toole Park last Sunday.
It came in fabulous fashion as Jenny Power gobbled up a sharp chance after an initially brilliant save from the Skerries goalkeeper.
Skerries came out strong and held the Jude’s side off until the final minutes of the first half where they created a few promising chances in front of goal.
With a spring in their step and some excellent defending all the way up the pitch, Mia Clohessy pushed the ball over the line shortly before half time. This left the Jude’s side two goals up when the referee blew the short whistle.
Ten minutes after the ball was thrown in for he second half, Jude’s Millie Farrelly continued her team’s goal run with a stylish finish.
Skerries had a new energy about them and responded to Jude’s two goals with a well-worked goal by Alex Ward.
However, captain Caoimhe Begley’s team stood strong against Skerries relentless attack.
With Jude’s goalkeeper Iseult Caffrey making some major saves, and Sarah Frisby bursting through the tackle to clear the ball into space, Jude’s looked strong.
They could not relax however, in the final ten minutes Skerries, showing a huge amount of character, looked like they could easily have pushed ahead. But Jude’s led by Farrelly and Heather Dunworth in the forwards confirmed their sides win with a perfect finish by Emma Maher.
Captain Caoimhe Begley proudly accepted the division 3 trophy on behalf of her side as well as a well-deserved player of the match award presented by Jim Shanahan Dublin County board Secretary.
