Inch Rovers win Div 1A County League Title
Inch Rovers 2-11 Mourneabbey 1-10
Fermoy was the venue for the clash of the Mourneabbey (2012 League winners) and Inch Rovers ( 2012 Championship winners) and after a competitive and entertaining contest the class and experience of an impressive Inch side proved too much for a young Mourneabbey team.
Playing with the aid of a strong breeze Mourneabbey seized the early initiative and were three points to the good before the Inch girls got on the board. As the action unfolded Inch began to gain control around the middle sector and with their forwards beginning to find their range after some early misses parity was restored.
With the contest evenly balanced as the teams swapped scores it was the Inch girls who make the decisive breakthrough with a well taken goal as half time approached. At the break it was the Inch girls who were in the ascendency as they turned into the second half with a strong wind at their backs holding a 1-7 to 0-6 advantage.
The early second half exchanges continued as the first half had ended with Inch using all their experience and guile to push home their advantage notching up 1-3 to a single point to stretch their lead to eight points as Mourneabbey struggled to stay in the contest.
To their credit the young Mourneabbey side refused to yield showing great character and resolve as slowly they began to eat into the Inch Rovers lead. A late goal and a point reduced the deficit to just four points but the Inch Rovers girls were not to be denied as they ran out deserving winners on a scoreline of 2-11 to 1-10.
