Second half got underway and Ahane started the quickest as they got their third goal of the game as the free from Aine dropped in and Niamh caught it and made sure that the Crecora keeper had no chance of saving it. Aine then put a 45 over and Ahane started to up it a gear. Another super point from Niamh from a seriously tight angle and a free from Aine saw the gap go to two, Crecora got another point before the water break, scores at the water break were Ahane 3-06 Crecora 4-06. The final fifteen minutes saw the teams share scores, again points from Niamh Brennan, and Molly Hussey kept Ahane in the game and saw the gap be brought back to one. Unfortunately, Ahane just ran out of time in the end and couldn’t manage to get the equalising or winning score. Full time score Ahane 3-09 Crecora 4-07.
