Deen Celtic 1-1 Kilkenny United WFC (AET)- Deen Celtic won 4-2 on penalties

Following what was a tough season for the young Kilkenny squad in the league, we were placed in the shield competition alongside 6 other competitors. We were drawn away to Highview Athletic in the Semi-Finals and came away with a 2-1 victory to set up the Final against Deen Celtic. 

Going in 0-0 at half time it was all to play for in the 2nd half of the final. Kilkenny took the lead in the final through Hayley Hawe. A very well worked goal. Unfortuately Deen Celtic equalised to force extra time. A penalty shootout decided the winner and unfortuately for the Kilkenny Girls it was Deen Celtic who came out on top. 

Massive well done to all involved. An impressive performance overall from a young side. We will most definitely see this squad in more cup finals in years to come!!
