A gusty performance from the senior girls, rocked the defending county champions Inniscarra in a game that finished all square in the Cork Camogie grounds on Saturday. 

The Douglas defence, laid out their stall from the start with Pamela Mackey leading by example. The close marshalling of the Inniscarra forwards by Amy Curtain and Rebecca Sheehan was of the highest quality as both players harassed their players for the full hour. The back's tenacity soon paid dividends and the turnovers caused provided a perfect launch pad for attack. In the middle of the field Julia White, was causing Inniscarra headaches and they had no answer for Julia's regular combination play with Katrina Mackey. Several times, this combination play lead to scores for Douglas and a trademark point from Joy Leo meant that Douglas went in to the halftime interval two points in front. 

 The second half continued with pace and passion as the Douglas girls exerted more pressure on their counterparts. With Aisling O'Brien and Seosai Mulrooney winning possession time after time, the Douglas forwards had plenty of ball sent their direction and Jessica O'Mahoney and Katelyn Holland were industrious in their efforts. Katrina Mackey remained unerring over placed balls as Douglas opened up a three point lead. Inniscarra appeared to be struggling and were dependent on place balls to remain in touch. Julia White continued to link up with Katrina as Douglas remained in the lead.

The ball in to Inniscarra's forward line was limited and on the rare occasion they managed to work their way through the Douglas defence, they found themselves stonewalled by the superb Jess Kavanagh in the Douglas goals. One such counter attack, required Jess to dash off her line and bravely throw herself at the oncoming attacker to produce a wonderful save.

With the clock ticking into extra time and Douglas leading by a point, Julia White looked to be soloing her way to a Douglas victory when she was hit with a hefty challenge. A free out seemed inevitable, but remarkably the referee gave a free for over carrying and from the resulting placed ball, Iniscarra snatched a draw at the death. 

There were a huge amount of positives from the game and the girls will take a lot of confidence from their performance and hopefully go one step further next time out.
