LADIES FOOTBALL
There was heartbreak for Corofin Ladies as they lost out to Kilkerrin/Clonbern on a scoreline of 2-9 to 1-14 in the County Senior Final played in Monivea on Saturday. Although defeated by two agonising points, the girls did the Club proud with a committed, high quality performance in the Final. The game was in the balance right until the end. Our scorers were Tracey Leonard 1-6, with a standout performance, Amy O'Donovan 1-1, Aoife Newell 0-1 and a beautiful point from Amy Coen (0-1). We must also mention the impressive and resilient defending that we did and some great saves from Dearbhla Gower, who was only eventually beaten by an Annette Clarke penalty goal. Thank you to all the players and team management for an exciting season that has seen us challenging again for the top County honours in both League and Championship finals.

LADIES FOOTBALL:
Our Seniors are back in the County final after a single point win over Claregalway in what can only be described as a gritty hard fought game played in appalling wind and rain, played on Saturday evening in Annaghdown. The final score was 2-6 to 0-11. Leanne got us the two cracking goals, Tracey took 5 superb points and Aoife Coen got a single crucial point, but it was the resilient defensive performance of the team that got us the win. Well done to every girl on the panel. Let us rest, re-set and go again in the Senior County Final next Saturday against Kilkerrin Clonberne.
