Crossabeg-Ballymurn claim final spot

Crossbeg-Ballymurn hosted Castletown in the Under-14 ladies' football Division 2 semi final on Thursday, and the home side reached the decider with a 4-19 to 1-8 win.

Despite the scoreline this was an entertaining and competitive game.

Castletown can hold their heads up high as they tried up to the final whistle, but the Crossabeg-Ballymurn forwards took their chances very well while their defenders really played as a tight unit to keep Castletown at bay.

And when Castletown did manage to get through on goal, Sarah Nolan made three outstanding saves and even stopped a penalty in the second-half.

The final is due to be played on August 16.
