The Hoopettes journey in the Ulster Championship is over. Playing against a very strong breeze the ladies were behind 1-11 to 0-02 at the end of the first half, the goal coming disappointingly in the final minute of the half.
However the ladies were determined not to go out without a fight. They hit the first four points of the second half and were dominating the play. A defensive error let the Donegal champions in for a goal and in the home side held out against the Highmoss pressure for the next ten minutes. After the Highmoss missed a penalty a turnover seemed unlikely. The Highmoss ladies though kept up the pressure knocking over five points in the final ten minutes. A fortunate late goal put a gloss on the scoreline for the Donegal side, but the Hoopettes can be very proud of their second half performance.
