Ballincollig fought back after quick free that resulted in a goal for them.  This was followed by another goal from Ballincollig.  Shauna Hewitt also saved many shots that looked threatening and her accurate kick outs helped us to retain possession and allowed Cora Maher and Deirbhile Fitzgerald to attack from midfield.
