Cavan beat Down in Ulster Minor championship

beat Down in Ulster Minor Championship


Cavan 4-17 Down 0-06

Cavan accounted for Down in the Ulster minor ladies
football championship on Tuesday last with a comprehensive
win in Newry. Knockbride player Emma Clarke helped
her team with a personal scoreline of 1-07 in
a game that saw the Breffni women dominate from
the throw-in.

Ailish Cronyn opened the scoring in the 2nd minute
with a goal and this was followed up by a point
from Aisling Traynor. Emma Clarke then scored
1-05 without reply before Eireann Gallligan added
her name to the scoresheet with a well taken point.
Cavan’s midfield partnership of Bronagh Sheridan
and Elaine Reilly were controlling the play from
the centre of the field, thus supplying the forwards
with plenty of ball to leave the scoreline at
half time 2-11 to 0-02 in favor of Cavan.

Emma Clarke opened the scoring in the second half
for Cavan before Ailish Cronyn notched up two
more points to add to Down’s woes. Niamh McGlade
and Laura Shaughnessy were introduced and McGlade
wasted no time as she rounded the defense to score
a point. Then Cavan got two more goals, the first
from Aisling Doonan a rocket of a shot leaving
the Down goalkeeper with no chance whilst Ailish
Cronyn added to her tally for the day.

The Cavan Manager will be happy with a win on
his team’s first outing on their championship
campaign. For Cavan Joanne Moore at full back
played well and always controlled her back line.
Cavan dominated the middle of the field while
up-front, Aisling Traynor, Emma Clarke and Aisling
Doonan proved a scourge for the Down defense throughout
the hour.

Cavan: A Duff, C Doonan, C McCutchen, J
Moore, R O’Keefe, P Lynch, A McInerney, B Sheridan,
E Reilly, A Cronyn, A Doonan, C O’Brien, E Clarke,
