Letterkenny Rovers A 3 - 1 Illistrin

Goalscorers: Caitlin McBrearty x2, Savanna Keys.

Illistrin got of the the dream start when Amilea McLaughlin raced onto a long ball by Tayla Doherty. Rovers can thank Lily Gallagher for her double save from a penalty and the rebound as Illistrin pushed hard to extend the lead. Just before half time Caitlin McBrearty equalised after a great ball by Savanna Keys. Rovers came out strong in the second half with Scarlet Graham going close twice however Tayla Doherty saved well for Illistrin. Erin Rafferty block a good effort from Illistrin’s Eabha McKinney. Laila Devenney went close with a header following a corner. Mary Stan-Mako chases down a ball to pass to Caitlin McBreaty to take the lead for Rovers. As time was running out Savanna Keys got her goal after an evening of hard work.

Great game of football by both teams with Nataila Zabillo standing out for Rovers and Aoife Doherty excelling for Illistrin
