Aherlow started the second half as they finished the first with yet another goal and a point to go 6 points ahead with twenty minutes left and looked to be in control of the game. However the Fethard girls refused to accept defeat and upped their game and went at the Aherlow defence in waves, chipping away at the lead with some excellent points taken and a goal to go 0-3  in front. As the game entered the final minute ,Aherlow mounted one last attack in search of an equalizing goal but the Fethard defence stood firm and were winner's by 3 points at the finish on a scoreline of Fethard 2-17 Aherlow 6-02.Captain Muireann O Connell accepted the John Donovan cup on behalf of a jubilant Fethard team who have now completed three in a row of U19A championship wins.
