UL Bohemian and Old Belvedere went head to head on Zoom on Saturday afternoon in The Front Row Union virtual playoff semi final 1.

UL Bohemian were represented by Chloe Pearse and Rachel Allen with Jemma Jackson and Kathryn Dane representing Old Belvedere.

In an incident packed matchup UL Bohemian built up an early lead thanks to a five pointer from a Sarah O’Gorman handstand and a seven pointer from teammate Clodagh O’Halloran in the tea bag challenge.

Clodagh O’Halloran – gives Bohs an early advantage.

Jemma Jackson and Kathryn Dane played on the compares obvious Ulster bais and were able to use some borderline tactics to claw back points for Belvo before Bohs pulled clear with a five pointer from a big team effort.

And when they followed that up with a second consecutive five pointer they looked home and hosed.

This was followed by screams of delight from Belvo when they thought Jenny Murphy had forced a penalty try with this effort.

Murphy comes close to getting a seven pointer.

Unfortunately, technology got the better of the old foggie Murphy and Bohs were able to seal the game with this late effort from Sarah Quin.

Despite a big effort from Dane at the end of the competition Bohs held on to record a 42 – 20 win and will progress to next week’s final.
