The women’s LGFA NFL Division One clash between Mayo and Dublin concluded at MacHale Park a short while ago. It ended in a five-point win for the All-Ireland champions, as Dublin emerged winners by 0-12 to 0-7.
Although we got the evening’s first score, via Natasha Gaughan, Dublin led pretty much all the way in this game. Two points in quick succession from Carla Rowe saw them hit the front for the first time and although Sinead Cafferkey levelled for us another two Dublin scores saw them take a lead they wouldn’t relinquish afterwards.
By half-time Dublin led by 0-7 to 0-3. From there to the finish – the half punctuated by a constant stream of substitutions on both teams – we were unable to get closer to them, losing out by five at the finish.
