Soon after Ballymackey got a foothold in the game helped by the introduction of Lily Kate Kenneally who came close to putting Ballymackey back in front just before half time from another great Olivia Looby run. Into the second half and the Ballymackey midfield of Olivia Fitzpatrick, Mioda O Shea and Lexi Wynne got on top and helped Ballymackey control the game, the trio combined for Mioda to get her second of the game with a fabulous top corner finish, soon after Mioda completed her hat trick when she raced onto a through ball and cooly finished past the goalie.
