ULSTER U16 LADIES FINAL

St Mary’s Magherafelt v St Dominic’s Belfast
Friday (11.30) – MUSA

The ladies footballers of St Mary's Magherafelt face Belfast side St Dominic's, as they go in search if Ulster glory this Friday.

'The Convent' qualified for the decider following convincing win over St Paul's Bessbrook in December.

Despite being a point down at the break, St Mary’s had the breeze for the second-half and took the lead. Key performances from Anna Mulholland, Annie Kilpatrick and Amy Rose Mulligan ensured this lead did not drop. The introduction of Nayana Chauhan and Eva Small helped the girls ease to an Ulster final spot.

St Mary's an impressive win over Loreto, Omagh in the semi-final and have been progressing well since kicking into action in September.
