A win would insure Douglas Hall the points they needed to win the league. You could have cut the tension with a knife between the player's Wednesday night. But when they went out on the pitch they showed they could play football. Starting strong dominating play and making some beautiful passes. Every player can hold their hand up high and say they gave it their all. Two spectacular goals from mid-fielder Judy Buckley and One from supper forward Donna O'Leary gave Douglas Hall a three nil lead at half time.
With great support on the line Douglas Hall went out in the second half with still great determination, insuring there lead wouldn't be taken from them. With the defence working at a unit marshalled by Lynda Horgan. Douglas Hall were getting some beautiful passes into the box, it wasn't long before Grace got a well-deserved goal. Introducing some fresh legs in Louise Martin and Kate Delaney to keep the pressure on to insure Douglas Halls win. When the final whistle went it was like a dream come true for all involved in Douglas Hall
