U-16’s continue their winning form


15-15 Fermanagh 0-03

Cavan U-16 ladies continued from their winning
form with a comprehensive and clinical display
in Vriginia on Saturday last. As the scoreline
might suggest it was all one way traffic from
the out-start and within fifteen minutes Cavan’s
full forward, Mullahoran woman Julie-Ann Brady,
had already scored her hat-trick of goals with
three brilliant efforts.

Roisin O’Keefe kept up the pressure with some
marvelous point scoring. Donna English added another
1-02 when her long range shot lobbed the Fermanagh
goalkeeper to land in the back of the net. Roisin
O’Keefe added another three more points to her
tally before half back Nicola Fortune made a great
run forward to score a point. In form Karen Reilly
eventually made the breakthrough when she scored
a goal in the 28th minute and followed this up
with a point to close the scoring at half time.

Cavan 5-10 to Fermanagh 0-01

Sinead Denning opened the scoring in the second
half with a superb goal in the 1st minute. Karen
Reilly added her second and third goals minutes
later. Cavan showed no signs of taking the pressure
off and further goals from Jenny McGuigan, Denning,
Aggie Clarke and two from Deidre Kelly turned
the game into more of a practice session rather
than a championship game. The very fact that this
is Cavan’s only second game in this competition
showed their growing confidence and alertness
on the ball as they prepare for the mammoth challenge
against Tyrone on Easter Monday. Tyrone are one
of the favourites this year and they too disposed
of Fermanagh in a similar scoreline. Jenny McGuigan
added two more goals and further points from Deidre
Kelly and Rachel Jordan closed the scoring leaving
the Cavan team in high spirits as they face their
next challenge.

Manager Eamon Lynch introduced his full quota
of substitutes and will be pleased with their
performance. All the substitutes proved their
willingness and confident nature to play, thus
increasing the competitiveness for positions on
the starting lineup.
