Valley claim Cavan Honours
0-09 Erne Valley 2-09



A late rally seen Erne Valley overturn a four point deficit
to claim the Don Smiths Bar Cavan Ladies Senior crown on
Sunday afternoon at the splendid Lavey grounds. The Virginia
girls wonder how they lost this one as they led for 54minutes
of a game they dominated until falling to a late Erne Valley
bust. Like in the drawn game Lurgan were again the early
pace setters racing into a four point lead with Ciara Brady,
Claragh O’Reilly, Grainne O’Shaughnessy and Nicola Dwyer
all pointing.

The Mullahoran/Gowna combination opened their account
on sixteen minutes with Paula Fitzpatrick pointing and player
of the match Patricia Lynch added a second. Philly McDermott
and Fitzpatrick exchanged points before O’Reilly wrapped
up the half with a brace to give Lurgan and interval lead
of 0-07 to 0-03. Early second half points from Niamh Fitzpatrick
and Paula Fitzpatrick reduced the deficit to two. Back came
Lurgan to lead by four again with McDermott and Michelle
Cole finding the range entering the final quarter. Fitzpatrick
converted two free’s to again leave just two between them
as we entered the final six minutes.

A clinical finish from substitute Aine Brady to the Lurgan
net gave the eventual winners the lead for the first time
with just over five minutes remaining. Patricia Lynch added
a second major soon after and points from Brady and team
captain Emer Reilly wrapped up the win.
