St Marys College, Dublin won the inaugural Ulster Women’s 7’s Tournament at Belfast Harlequins on Sunday afternoon in a hard fought final against Canadian visitors United Rugby.
Earlier in the afternoon Enniskillen defeated Ballymoney in the Shield Final and Cooke defeated, “Surprise Team of the Tournament“, Carrickfergus in the Plate Final in an entertaining day of Women’s 7’s at Deramore Park.
The local sides faced stiff competition from the engaging Canadians and the hard working St Mary’s, the latter losing four players to injury throughout the tournament in some exceptionally hard matches.
Special mention also to the players of Carrick and Ballymoney who formed a new club ‘Carrimoney’ so frequent was the player swapping between the teams.
The final was a fitting tribute to a great day’s entertainment with, a patched together, St Marys just proving too strong for the Canadians. St Mary’s Suzanne picked up the winning score and was fittingly awarded the Player of the tournament.
