Old Belvedere Women ground out a gritty win against Suttonians in difficult conditions to consolidate their third place standing in the Women’s Energia AIL.
Victoria Dubanovich O’Mahony opened the scoring on the 7th minute. suttonians began to work they way into the game but it was Bevo who scored next with Fiona Tuite finding the line on the 25 minute.
Nichola Fryday wrapped up the scoring in the first half and with Jemma Jackson adding an early conversion Belvo went into the break with a 17 – 0 lead.
Suttonians hit back early in the second period with Carrie O’Keeffe grounding the ball out wide but any thoughts of a comeback were quickly quashed with Clodagh Dunne crossing for Belvo shortly after.
Unsurprisingly the game lost a bit of fluency on the heavy pitch and difficult conditions but Belvo raised their game for one last effort for Jess Spain to crash through the Suttonians defence late on for the final score.
