Although they have still rwo games to play, they have remained unbeaten (8wins out of 8 games) and so Saturday nights game confirmed their league champion status. It was a tough match, played in very hot weather. The girls started off slow in the first half, but after an emotional half-time team talk, the second half saw them play to their full potential.
With the support of all those from the club who came to cheer them on and with the glimpse of silverware only 30 mins away the girls racked it up a gear and powered to victory 2-13 to 0-6. Absolutely fantastic game from all the girls, the effort and committment throughout the year finally paid dividends, well done to you all and to your management team of Christopher Tumelty, Dee Sharvin & Gabriel Clendenning.

Loughinisland scored a goal with the last kick of the game to sink a very unlucky Bright side. Daniel McMenamin, Conor Burns, Sam Dinu & Marc Burke got the goals. John Burns, Anton Cooper, Taylor Broggy helped out with some fine point scoring. Jordon Rogan pulled off a great save in the first half to keep Bright in touch.
