A slow start to this game cost the Castleisland ladies in the end. In the first quarter NUIG got off to a flying start while McCarthy's were finding it hard to hit the target. 7-20.

The second quarter started off better with Miriam hitting six points and Reidin O'Loughlin, Eileen O'Connor and Lorraine Scanlon doing great work in defence-22-36.

In the third quarter the ladies threw everything in to out score NUIG 20-10 and bring the lead back to a four point game, with Lorraine Scanlon, Mags O'Donoghue and Reidin O'Loughlin fighting for everything under the boards and Tracey Hartnett, Miriam Leane and Eileen O'Connor taking care of the scores to finish 42-46.

The fourth quarter started with both sides denying each other for scores, Galway then stepped up a gear and went on a scoring spree, time was running out for the Castleisland Ladies and as much as they fought to claw it back it was too late.
