Down Ldies Round Up

Down Ladies Roundup

Kilcoo were crowned ‘Ground Coffee Sandwich Bars’ Intermediate champions on Sunday evening after a fantastic battle against close rivals Bright. This game really lived up to the pre-match hype and both teams have to be congratulated on their perseverance and determination especially given the weather conditions prevailing on the day. In a very close first half, both teams found the scores hard to come by with Kilcoo shading the exchanges to reach the half-time whistle 1-04 to 0-02 in front thanks mostly to the accurate shooting of Chara Laverty. Bright started the second period with much more purpose and they were quickly rewarded with a goal and a point to bring them back into contention. Kilcoo were hanging on and managed to tag on a few points to keep in front as we entered the final few moments. The magpies leading by 2-points were looking to close out the game when a high speculative ball dropped into the Kilcoo goalmouth and became lodged in a small mud pocket near the magpie goal-line. After a tense scramble and a toe poke clearance the ball made its way outfield taking with it Brights’ final chance of turning over the game in their favour. Shortly afterwards the final whistle sounded and the celebrations began with Kilcoo claiming the title on a score of 1-06 to 1-04. Kilcoo were worthy champions and they will carry the Down flag into Ulster. Bright will look at a number of missed scoring opportunities especially in the second period when they were the more dominant side. Best for Kilcoo were Chara Laverty, Catriona Devlin, Leon Doherty and Kylie Doherty. Bright were best represented by Sarah Venney, Frances O’Connor and Rosin Torney. The Player of the match award went to Chara Laverty (Kilcoo)


In the Senior final Bredagh defeated Saval to claim the ‘Century Electrical Wholesale’ Senior Championship on a score of 4-11 to 2-04. Bredagh were the more dominant team throughout and were well worth their victory though Saval put up a good fight especially in the second period. Bredagh were workmanlike in their approach and they were good value for their half-time lead of 4-04 to 1-01. Saval started brightly in the second half with a great goal from Lorraine Havern but this only inspired Bredagh to step up a gear and a feature of this was their ability to pick off scores from distance with Victoria Mallot featuring in a lot of the build up to their scores. Bredagh have by and far been the best team in the division this term and they will be well pleased to claim their first title since 2002 and based on the performance on Sunday they will put up a great challenge in the Ulster Club series. Saval will be disappointed but the experience will have done wonders for them and the club; When County chairman Gabriel McCaffrey handed the cup to Bredagh captain Jenny Agnew there was much applause and cheering as the belles got the party started. Best for Bredagh were Jenny Agnew, Victoria Mallot and Aoife McDonald. Saval had good performances from Lorraince Havern, Natasha Lennon, Niamh McGowan and Aine Crozier. The Player of the match award went to Victoria Mallot (Bredagh)
