Late Keenan goal sinks St Dominic's in injury time

St Mary's Magherafelt were crowned Ulster U16 B ladies football champions after their 4-7 to 4-4 stoppage time win over St Dominic's on Friday afternoon in MUSA.

'The Convent', despite conceding the first goal, bounced back to lead for most of the game until the Belfast side edged ahead in the closing stages.

After getting back level, thanks to a pressure free from Sarah Devlin, it was wing-back Eilis Keenan who hammered home the crucial, late, winning goal.
