St Catherines met Barryroe at home. The night where the weather was bitterly cold and the pitch conditions were hard underfoot due to the cold dry weather of the last few weeks.

Such conditions did not deter the St Catherines ladies from going out with their usual energy and enthusiasm. From the throw in St Catherines were showing that they meant business with a very quick point from Rachel O'Callaghan this was followed by points from Finola Neville and Evelyn Ronayne.

Barryroe followed suit with scoring three points making the sides level. At fifteen minutes into the game, Barryroe scored a goal leaving the Saints playing catch up for the first time. The girls responded with some great points from Finola Neville Michelle Tobin Rachel O Callaghan and Catherine Fitzgerald.
