Claregalway retain title as Holland stars

Claregalway, Galway 3-3

St Val's, Cork 0-3

Claregalway made it back-to-back Division 1 girls' titles as Roisin Holland bagged three goals in their victory over Cork's St Val's.

Leading by 1-3 to 0-2 at half-time, Holland's goal early in the second half more or less put things beyond St Val's, though the east Cork side did apply plenty of pressure as the game went on.

Holland completed her hat-trick late on, however, to seal the two-in-a-row for Claregalway.

Scorers -- Claregalway: R Holland 3-2, S O'Connell 0-1.

St Val's: A Kelleher 0-3 (1f).
