Coolmeen win Clare Ladies Minor B Final


2007 Clare Ladies Minor B Final

Venue: Coolmeen

Referee: Michael Fitzgerald Coolmeen 5 – 6 Kilmihil 2 – 4

Pre-match favourites Coolmeen justified their supporter’s confidence
with a strong display of football that their opponents Kilmihil
simply could not match on the day. Commanding displays, especially
from Sinéad Moloney, Rachel Marrinan, Eimear O’Connor and Emer Green,
meant that Kilmihil were always playing second fiddle to their near
neighbours. Apart from Ailish Considine’s opening point on five
minutes Kilmihil had very little else to cheer about as Coolmeen
set about their task with clinical efficiency. First half goals
from Sinéad Moloney and Niamh O’Connell were added to by points
from Moloney, Eimear O’Connor (3) and Leanne Normoyle to give Coolmeen
a commanding 2-5 to 0-1 interval lead. Kilmihil did make a better
game of it in the second half but had no answer to the scoring prowess
of county U-16 star Sinéad Moloney who helped herself to another
two second half goals to complete her hat trick.

Another U-16 county star Eimear O’Connor also added another Coolmeen
goal during this period. Goals win matches and Kilmihil simply could
not find the net as frequently as their rivals and although Ailish
Considine and Ellie O’Gorman did raise two second half green flags
for the girls in green and gold it was simply a matter of too little
too late as Coolmeen had inflicted critical damage with their first
half display. Ailish Considine also had two second half points for
the losers and her sister Eimear also raised a white flag. Emer
Green also got on the scoresheet for the winners with a well taken
point. Thus at the final whistle Coolmeen were deserving 5-6 to
2-4 winners.

The large home support were delighted with their teams win and there
was great celebration when county board chairman Johnny Hayes presented
captain Ciara Cleary with the winning trophy.
