Antrim legends retain their 'Sevens' shield title in Dublin!
Antrim Retained the shield after a 3-4 to 2-4 win over Dublin in the final on Saturday. Once again the annual Legends Sevens tournament was played at the Na Fianna complex. The saffron ladies defeated Kildare in their first game, and while they lost their final two group games, Antrim ran Galway and Cork very close in two entertaining matches. With Kildare, Antrim and Dublin all tied on the same number of points, a draw was made to determine who would play in the Shield semi final and who would receive a bye to the final. The draw saw Antrim progress to the final where they met the Dubs. In a tough, physical game there was little between the sides over the 20 minutes but Antrim held on to reclaim the Shield for the second year in a row on a scoreline of 3-4 to 2-4! Meanwhile a super slick Galway team denied Tipperary three cup titles in a row as the Tribes women were the most impressive team on the day and comprehensively defeated Tipp in the Cup final.
