Laura Dugera was the two-goal hero as Mulroy College retained their FAI Schools Senior ‘B’ Girls National Cup title.
Mulroy College 2 Midleton College 0
Dugera’s brace fired Mulroy to a win over Cork side Midleton College at Home Farm FC’s ground at Whitehall in Dublin.
In a pulsating affair, Dugera’s double shot Mulroy to victory again in the final, a year after a double by Caoimhe Walsh gave them a win over Passage West in last season’s decider.
After defeating Pobalscoil Ghaoth Dobhair in the Ulster final, Mulroy overcame St Kilian’s in the All-Ireland semi-final.
Mulroy were without Catherine Grier, who is on duty with Doncaster Rovers in the Champions League, but they took the lead after just seven minuets thanks to a wonderful goal by Dugera.
Midleton pushed hard, with Rosie Speakman going close to an equaliser, but early in the second half Mulroy doubled the lead as Dugera found a way through again to double the advantage.
Rachel O’Sullivan tried her luck for Midleton, but couldn’t trouble Clare Friel in the Mulroy goal and the Milford scholars held on for a big win.
