Our Lady’s won the DCU 7’s for the first time on the 2nd April. The highly prestigious tournament featured ten teams from around Ulster from four different counties.
The tournament featuring TY & 5th Yr students saw Our Lady’s top their group with emphatic wins over Maynooth, Mount Sackville and St Marks, Manor House. The quarter final pitted the Monaghan girls against Castleknock, after a tense and physical encounter the sides finished level with the result decided on penalties. Jayne Drury, Erin Hamill & Aoife Flanagan converted all three to qualify the girls for a semi final against Ashbourne.
In a tactical battle the girls hit three goals to qualify for the final against Moate from Westmeath. The girls withstood a strong comeback from the Midlanders to run out deserving 9 6 winners and all agreed that Our Lady’s girls were deserving winners of the tournament. Joint captains Erin Hamill & Jayne Drury accepted the Cup on behalf of the squad. The win was a just reward for a group who have contested major finals at ‘A’ level in Ulster in recent years and will provide a platform for next year’s Ulster Senior campaign.
