Enniskillen Royal Grammar School and Loreto Secondary School Letterkenny took part in the Girls Schools X7S Final at Ravenhill this afternoon with Enniskillen coming out on top 14 – 2 in an entertaining final.
The match featured two FRU Favourites in Ulster and Cooke RFC Women’s Katie Hetherington, who captained Enniskillen, and Loreto’s Ulster U18 starlet Mya Alcorn who has just recovered from a season long injury.
Enniskillen dominated the opening period, racking up a 7-0 lead, with Zara Flack (2), Catherine Graham, Katie Hetherington, India Daley (2) and Millie Cannings all touching down in this cross field version of the game.
Loreto came more into the game in the second period, restricting the powerful Enniskillen side to scores from Katie Elliott, Flack (2) and Daley, before their efforts were rewarded with with a much celebrated try as Jade Duffy crossed as the second period approached it’s end.
Enniskillen added three more in the final period with Flack clocking up her fifth score of the afternoon, Graham and Hetherington also crossing. However, Loreto battled to the end and captain Sara Bundschu crossed for their second score just before full time.
