Half time: St. Michaels 0-09, Simonstown Gaels 1-10.
Simonstown Gaels were far too strong for a depleted St. Michaels side in this third round SFC match in Simonstown on Wednesday evening.
Sinéad McCormack opened the scoring with a point in the second minute and that was the only time her side held the lead. The home side added three points in as many minutes and went 1-3 to 0-2 up after only 7 minutes. The visitors plugged away with minors from Marion Farrelly and McCormack and they were thrown a lifeline after 19 minutes when awarded a penalty however the penalty was saved by the Simonstown ‘keeper however Marion Farrelly got a consolation point from the rebound. St. Michaels were just about able to keep up with the home side as Farrelly, McCormack and Seona Lynch each pointed before the short whistle to trail by just four points, 0-9 to 1-10.
After the re-start the Simonstown girls went about putting the game to bed as it was double scores just nine minutes into the half after the home side bagged their second major for a 2-12 to 0-9 lead. Handling errors began to creep into the St. Michaels play with the home side been gifted with many turnovers as they continued to pick off scores adding gloss to an already impressive winning margin.
Seona Lynch and Marion Farrelly registered the visitors only scores of the second half.
