Within the first 5 minutes of the second half, the girls had fired off 3 great scores in a row to leave 2 between the sides. A special shout out to 2nd year Rachel O Grady who got one of the scores.  </div> <div> <br /></div> <div> They picked off 2 more great scores to get the game level. Every single girl worked their socks off and hooked and blocked everything in sight.  </div> <div> <br /></div> <div> We eventually got our noses in front but Doon replied with a point of their own. We went up the field and got two more points. With 5 minutes remaining, we eventually got the goal to give us some breathing space. </div> <div> <br /></div> <div> This win puts us in the senior final in a couple of weeks time. Well done to every girl who togged out today it was a great team effort and we are very proud of you all.  </div>
