Out of nowhere Caoimhe Ronayne made a massive rebound and she got Crosshaven going with the first score. Cobh did not give up as they continued pushing and testing Crosshaven backs but Aisling O’Mahony and Phoebe Piper were not letting anyone pass. Crosshaven continued to work as a team and kept possession with excellent team play from Eimear Brady and Emily Russell. The first half ended with a score of 1-0 to Crosshaven but Cobh was not finished just yet. Cobh began the half very strong but Sorcha Conway made some exceptional saves in goal and no score was going in against her! The game continued with Alice Brady taking a tough hit to the chest but she ventured on and continued playing. Niamh Scriven , Andrea Long and Katie Bowen took some strong shots and were very unlucky not to get a score but Cobh were not giving up. Captain Casey Smith continued to encourage the players which kept all of Crosshaven going. The match ended with a final score of 1-0 and Crosshaven started their season off with a win.
