On Wednesday November 9, Davitt College, Castlebar, played against St Mary’s Secondary School at Celtic Park, in Castlebar. St Mary’s put up a great fight to begin with, but when Erina Flannery put a ball in the back net after 10 minutes Davitt College attacked forcefully. Flannery’s goal was followed by a goal from Melissa Patterson, who put up a fantastic fight up front. The third goal was scored by Anna Tully and was well deserved, as she put up a blinding performance at left wing. The fourth goal was scored again by Melissa Patterson. However Patterson did not obtain a hat-trick as the fifth goal was scored by Kirstin Sheerin. Sheerin, who put up a fantastic performance in goal last year, played centre field and demonstrated remarkable skill and endurance. Davitt will go on to play Ursuline College, Sligo, to qualify for the Connacht quarter finals.
