Luck wasn’t on their side as a number of close saves from the Civil Service goalkeeper and tight defence kept Dromore out.

Dromore stayed firm, playing the ball down through the midfield, with all of defence, midfielders and front players sticking close to their opponents and staying strong and fast with their ball passes and interceptions.

Goalkeeper, Ciara Barlow, was awarded player of the match for a brilliant number of amazing saves and her brilliant ability of helping coach the team from the back of the pitch.

Dromore would like to thank Lynne for becoming an umpire for the match.
