Our Ladies Minor Division 5 Footballers can now call themselves DUBLIN COUNTY CHAMPIONS!
It was a hard fought battle against the defending champions Na Fianna, who showed themselves to be a strong and talented side.
Na Fianna were in top form from the off and the scoreline was not looking good at half time with Crumlin down by 11 points. However along with the swirling wind in the second half Crumlin stepped up a gear and battled back to go ahead with a few minutes of normal time left. An equalising point from Na Fianna in the dying minutes forced the match to extra time.
Extra time was nail biting stuff with tired bodies and leg cramps adding to the sideline tension. A couple of goals for Crumlin in the second half of extra time seemed to settle the team who hung on for their first trophy in only their maiden year of playing together.
Congratulations ladies, a fantastic achievement for yourselves. Your club is extremely proud of you.
We would also like to thank all the supporters who came along to cheer on the team.
Final scoreline: Crumlin 7-07(28) vs Na Fianna 4-09(21)
