Broadford came on to the pitch the stronger side from the off and this was demonstrated by an early point from Clodagh O’Farrell.
Clooney-Quin were aggressive, however, in their rebuttal and ensured there was plenty of action up the Broadford goal end to keep the backs on their toes.
A goal from Kathy O’Farrell in the 13th minute followed by another just two minutes later, tipped in to the back of the net by Claire Heffernan after a long puck down the field from Alexandra Troy, gave Broadford a massive boost of confidence whilst Clooney-Quin were unable to convert their determined efforts in to scores, the ball going wide on a number of occasions. Half time score 2-02 to 0-00.
The second half was much the mirror image of the first in performance as well as scores. Two more goals, one kicked by Susan O’Shea and another sent in again by Claire Heffernan, and two more over the bar against the embattled but resilient Clooeny-Quin - trying really hard to score but just unable to break through; gave Broadford their final victory with a score of 4-04 to 0-00.
Overall a low scoring game and much to the credit of Broadford’s defence who neutralised Clooney-Quin’s hard work around the Broadford goal at every turn, but in the end Broadford’s experience came to the fore.
Well done to the Broadford girls, their trainers and everyone who has supported the team over the season.
