On a windy Monday morning in December, Loreto Cavan edged out St. Louis Carrickmacross by a margin of just one point in a nail-biting contest. With the wind to their backs in the first half, Loreto started out strong getting the first two scores but a free for Carrickmacross eventually got them on the scoreboard. Maintaining most of the possession, Loreto Cavan continued to dominate with Elaine Brady and Aine Reilly kicking points at their ease leaving three points between the teams at half time, 0-6 to 0-3.

Loreto started strong in the second half extending their lead to 5 points with twenty minutes remaining. However, with the wind getting stronger, St. Louis began their comeback. The momentum swayed in their favour for the next fifteen minutes and with only five minutes remaining it was 0-9 each. The backlines of both teams were evidently strong with very few goal chances throughout the game. However, the Cavan girls in maroon, once again showed their composure as they kicked the last score and saw out the game. A narrow but sweet victory with a scoreline of 0-10 to 0-9.
