The Banner Ladies U14B team met Crusheen in the first round of the Division 3 championship on Sunday and a very close competition ensued. The Banner were fortunate to have a very strong wind advantage in the first half which saw them 5-7 to 0-1 leaders and surely no way back for Crusheen.

However a major revival and a superb team effort saw them fire 7-5 past the townies to go 2 points ahead with minutes to go. However, the Banner goaled and pointed to conclude this very exciting game. Crusheen finished out just 2 points in arrears at full time with a score-line of 7-8 to 7-6.Certainly a game of two halves.
