Niamh Farrell for Claire barker Talking Points: Dunboyne got off to a great start with an early goal from Vicki Wall, this was followed by scores from fiona o neill and Shelly Melia & Orla Flanagan, we were enjoying a lot of possession and could have had another score or two.
Towards the middle of the half, Royal Gaels started to get a foothold in the game and were rewarded with 2 goals in quick succession leaving only a score between the teams. Dunboyne responded well and finished the half with a 2 pt lead. We lost Elaine Doyne to injury just before the break.
The 2nd half saw Aoife Thompson & Rachel Mc Dermott switch positions, and both acquitted themselves well with Aoife and Fiona o\'Neill linking up well.
Scores were handed to come by in the 2nd half, but Dunboyne opened up a 5 pt lead and were working very hard around the middle third of the field turning over possession on number of occasions.
We were awarded a penalty but unfortunately the strike just shaved the post.
With 6 minutes injury to be played Royal Gaels were putting us under pressure but we stood firm to record our second league victory.
Great to see Alison Jones, Annie Moffatt and Aoife Thompson back from injury
