Westport headed off for their 3rd Title last Wednesday & came home smiling. They were up against Moy Davitts so they knew it wouldn’t be an easy task, Laura Keane was the first to get Westport off the mark with a goal & a point, Tara Hastings added her 2 points, and before the half time whistle there was a goal from Niamh McNea & a point from Ellen Moran, leaving Westport a point down at half time. There were 4 points apiece scored in the 2nd half, one from Laura Keane & Tara Hastings putting 3 over the bar but it was the goals got & saved that made the difference for Westport with some excellent saves from Goalie Laura Fitzgerald & 2 got from Tara Hastings & one from Nicola O’Malley. Westport were 8 points clear in the end. Player of the match went to Tara Hastings. Westport made some noise heading home with their biggest fans in Convoy behind them & celebrated in the Mill Times Hotel. Well done to all the girls & management, all the hard work has paid off.
