Cavan U-16s go down to Tyrone

U-16s go down to Tyrone


2-07 Tyrone 5-11 By Ray Brady

Cavan ladies U-16 team were beaten well by Tyrone
on Monday last in the U16 Ulster championship.
Tyrone got off to the better start and with fifteen
minutes gone were already up by three goals from
Aisling O’Hare and Aileen Hackett. But Cavan rallied
in the last ten minutes and a super goal from
Karen Reilly and points from Jenny Fitzpatrick
and Renee Murphy left the score at the interval
Tyrone 3-07 to Cavan’s 1-05.

The second half really belonged to Cavan as they
applied all the pressure but yielded very little
results. Tyrone on the other hand were clinical
with their scores once they got the ball into
their half of the field and further goals from
Sarah Connelly and Rebecca McCreesh left the comeback
too much for Cavan. Cavan’s only consolation was
a goal from Jenny McGuigan who played well when
introduced. Despite the large difference in scores
the game was played at an extremely fast pace
with the Breffni ladies having as much procession
as the northern visitors.

The Tyrone forwards always had the sharper edge
and with Sarah Connelly playing well at centre
half forward is one to watch for the future. Cavan
tried hard up to the final whistle and despite
playing without some key players out with injury
will be happy to have put in a hard fought battle.
Cavan now travel to Derry where a win is a must
if they are to advance to the next round of the
competition. Tyrone is left with a game against
Monaghan where the Farney girls must win if they
are to force a play off in the group.
