Pres kept Tullow scoreless at the break. Second half started with Tullow pushing on looking to reduce the deficit but Joanne Cranny pulled out multiple great saves. The captain Sarah Duffy was leading by example on the wing. The defence held Tullow out and the game finished 2-0 to Pres.Best players for Pres were Aisling Connolly, Erika Hennessy and Grainne Thompson.
