Hockey: Senior Girls Munster Cup heartbreak


It was heartbreak for our senior girls’ team on Friday 26th in the opening round replay against Mt Mercy girls. Tight defences dominated a tense game with so little space that only one penalty corner was conceded. Bandon had the advantage of that and it took a fine save to deny an opening goal. Even extra time failed to break the stalemate.

The resulting five shuttles were also tied 2-2 until the final round when Mt Mercy scored the vital goal. The girls played with wonderful skill and spirit.
