Vincent’s and Martin’s draw in Leinster Camogie senior final

Mon, 18th November 2019

Dublin champions St Vincent's and reigning provincial champions, Wexford's St Martin's, will have to meet again after drawing 0-10 each in Sunday's Leinster Camogie Senior final at Donaghmore Ashbourne.

Vinnies trailed 0-7 to 0-5 at half-time and by three points early in the second half but battled back with Alison Maguire deadball accuracy leading the way to take the lead for the first time with just over ten minutes remaining before Sarah O'Connor struck the equaliser for last year's All-Ireland final runners-up.

The Wexford side had been reduced to 14 players at that stage following the dismissal of defender Mary Barrett and the Marino side threatened late on to make that numerical advantage count.

The replay will take place next Sunday, time and venue to be decided.

In a keenly contested duel the opening exchanges saw St Martin's Chloe Fox and St Vincent's Aisling Maher swap scores.

However, the Wexford side took control as the half progressed to outscore their opponents 0-5 to 0-1 before the 20th minute with Linda Bolger, Sarah O’Connor, Emma Codd and Chloe Fox on target.

Vincent's, though, finished the opening half in impressive fashion with Ali Maguire, who tallied 0-9 (0-9f) in total, converting three frees to leave it 0-7 to 0-5 in favour of St Martin's at the break.

Amy Cardiff's point on the restart saw Martin's move three points clear.

But with 15 minutes remaining Mary Barrett was shown a second yellow card and Vincent's took advantage with Ali Maguire converting three more frees to edge her side in front entering the last ten minutes.

A Chloe Fox score saw Martin's brought equality before Ali Maguire's 52nd minute free nosed the Marino girls ahead.
Sarah O’Connor tied the game with six minutes left on the clock with St Martin's having the better of the late opportunities to seal victory but couldn't failed to set up next weekend's replay.

SCORERS - St Vincent's: A Maguire 0-9 (0-9f), A Maher 0-1. St Martin's: C Fox 0-5,(0-4f), S O'Connor 0-2, L Bolger, E Codd, A Cardiff 0-1 each.
