All-Ireland Under 16B final replay

Antrim 1-10 Laois 3-6

When Maeve Kelly scored a 28th minute goal to put Antrim ahead by 1-6 to 1-4 at half-time, this All-Ireland Under 16B final replay looked well within the Saffrons’ reach with wind assistance to come.

However helped by a couple of strange refereeing decisions, Laois battled well for the second period and got a bit of luck at the death when Maeve Kelly’s shot came off the post and flew across the goal-line before being despatched to safety.

Laois got off to a great start with Kirsten Keenan finding the net inside four minutes and adding a point before Maeve Kelly got her side up and running with two points and Roisin McCormick then hit three points in a row before Kelly found the net a couple of minutes before the break.

Although Kelly and Maura Downey pointed after the break, Laois got back on level terms with a goal from Aine Cuddy in the 48th minute. 

Laois then got their third goal, a ground pull from the edge of the area. 

Antrim kept battling to get back but were wide from half-chances while Roisin McCormick was pulled up on marginal calls from the referee when goals were on.

A late free Eimear Fitzpatrick sealed a 3-6 to 1-10, but Antrim will feel this one got away.
