Hanniffy runs riot

Galway upped their performance at the weekend with a convincing 4-13 to 0-7 win over Limerick in the Littlewoods Ireland Camogie League division one at Duggan Park, Ballinasloe.

It was all over by half-time as Niamh Hanniffy ran riot in the first half, scoring 1-2 while also involved with three goals, and Galway led 4-6 to 0-4 the break.

Hanniffy set up Catherine Finnerty for a goal after just 87 seconds and Finnerty pounced on a break off the full-forward to grab her second 16 minutes later.

The other two majors arrived inside a minute towards the end of the half. Hanniffy capitalised on a slip by Marion Quaid to grab her goal, while also flicking the sliotar into her hand off an astute Niamh Kilkenny delivery from the puckout, and laying off to Noreen Coen for the fourth.

The tempo dropped in the second half, but Galway's defence held firm, with skipper Sarah Dervan and Róisín Black particularly effective.

Galway and Tipperary both have two wins from two, ahead of their meeting on March 8.
