Down girls get new sponsorship deal off to a flying start

Down girls get new sponsorship deal off to
a good start

Down played Fermanagh in the firrst round of the
Ulster U-14 championship. The result of the game was Fermanagh 2-6
Down 6-6. Down were slow to get going in the first quarter as Fermanagh
took a 1-1 lead. However, the long bus journey wore off around the
ten minute mark and the goals started to come from full forward
Eimear McGeough and Mayobridge’s Niamh McGuinness. Once they hit
the front though, Down never looked back, leading by ten at the
half way point. They upped their workrate in the second half with
Bredagh players Nicole O’Connor and Cathy Short dominant in the
back line and Sileen McDonald giving a captain’s performance in
midfield. Scores from Saval players Eimear Kane and Natashya Lennon
extended the lead over a determined Fermanagh side with a Tara Laverty
point finishing the game in style. 

The sponsorship deal with The Quays rounds off a great week for
Down girls football following the U14 team’s additional success
in the Ulster Blitz plate competition in Greencastle on Easter
