NAOMH Mairtin picked up the victory they needed to secure the Louth LGFA U14 League Group C title after overcoming the O Raghallaigh’s/Oliver Plunkett’s combination on a warm Thursday evening in Monasterboice.

From the outset, this exhilarating match was fiercely contested, particularly at midfield where both teams battled hard for possession.

Naomh Mairtin, led by their captain on the day Abbi Winters, showed a hunger for victory that was evident in every play, and their ability to capitalise on scoring opportunities was a highlight.

The game featured several thrilling goalmouth tussles, with defenders and goalkeepers from both sides making crucial interventions. However, it was the Mairtins’ attacking prowess that shone through, as they managed to find the back of the net five times, while their point-scoring was equally commendable.

The Drogheda combination fought valiantly and exhibited great skills, contesting every ball and making Naomh Mairtin work for their scores, but despite their best efforts they were unable to match the clinical finishing and cohesive teamwork of the home side.

This victory was especially significant for Naomh Mairtin as it secured them the league title. The team’s performance throughout the season has been brilliant, and this win was a fitting culmination of their hard work and dedication.
