As the first half went on, Dungannon began to find ways to break through Bann’s midfield line and make some quick and scary breaks into the Bann circle.

With some fantastic saves from keeper Louise Beckett, Bann were able to keep it to 0-0 at half-time.

Bann went out strong in the second half with some great play from Anna Waugh and Poppy Robinson which drove the ball to forwards Emma Leeper and Jayne Walker but they could just not finish it in the circle.

Bann’s defence were put under great pressure near the end of the match but some great tackles by Jayne Scott and Joanna Berry kept the ball out of the line of goal for Dungannon.

With a frustrating final scoreline of 0-0 at full time, Bann go away with another point on the board.
