ST KEVIN'S re­tained the Wick­low Post Pri­mary Schools girls Ju­nior A foot­ball ti­tle when de­feat­ing Scoil Chonglais in an en­ter­tain­ing fi­nal in Balt­in­glass on Tues­day.

The first half was evenly con­tested. Scoil Chonglais made the early run­ning but the sides were level af­ter 20 min­utes. Dunlavin had kicked a num­ber of wides up to this point but for the re­main­der of the half their ac­cu­racy im­proved and they led by 3-7 to 3-2 at half time.

The Balt­in­glass school were first to score in the sec­ond half but from then on the bet­ter bal­anced St Kevin's team had the up­per hand.

Their half back line con­tin­u­ally drove for­ward, set­ting up chances for their for- wards. Scoil Chonglais de­fended well and did man­age some scores in break­aways but the Dunlavin school were wor­thy win­ners.

The win­ners had ex­cel­lent de­fend­ers in Beth Doyle, An­nie Maguire and Claire Grace while Amy Burke and Maedbh Ni Ghall starred in at­tack. Marie Kealy was out­stand­ing for Scoil Chonglais while Chloe O'Neill, Kaitlin O Brien and Jean Kelly also had their mo­ments. Ref­eree was Christy O'Rourke. SCOR­ERS: St Kevin's CC Ellen Quinn 2-2, Amy and Amy Burke 1-3 each, Maedbh Ni Ghall and Ni­amh Clarke 1-1 each, Mia Ka­vanagh, Beth Doyle and Sophie Mills 0-1 each.
