McConnell Come to the Rescue for Defending Ulster Champs

TESCO Homegrown Ulster Senior Club Final

Donaghmoyne 1-14 Termon 4-5


Donaghmoyne needed a couple of late points from corner forward Cathriona Mc Connell to force a replay of this year Tesco Homegrown senior decider.


The reigning Ulster and All Ireland champions dominated the first half and deservedly lead at the break 0-9 to 1-0, the Termon goal coming from Geraldine Mc Laughlin. Just before the break Termon had Grainne Mc Daid sin binned for persistent fouling but shortly after her return at the start of the third quarter she found the back of the net as Termon began to eat into the Donaghmoyne lead.  Geraldine Mc Laughlin and Fiona Lafferty traded goals midway through the half and with time running out Termon were awarded a penalty when livewire Mc Laughlin was pulled down in the square.

The 19 year old picked herself up, dusted herself down and then calmly slotted the ball past Linda Martin to give her side a two point advantage entering injury time. Donaghmoyne to their credit pushed forward and forced Termon to commit a number of fouls. Cathriona Mc Connell was given two last scoring chances and fired both over to force a draw. The replay will take place next Saturday.


TESCO Homegrown Ulster Intermediate Club Final

Glen 1-11 Milford 1-10


Just when it looked like the Ulster club intermediate final was going to extra time Glen corner back Sarah Kerr popped up to fire over the winner for the Derry champions.


This was a tight game from the start with neither side dominating. Milford did appear to be going in at the break level however in injury time Louise Gunn was on hand to palm the ball to the Milford net to give Glen a midway lead 1-4 to 0-6.


The second half was every bit as tight and it became the Milne versus Barrett show. Glen number ten Caoimhe Milne kicked 8 points and won the player of the match award but she was pushed all the way by Milford’s Amber Barrett who finished with a tally of 1-9. The game looked very much like it was heading for extra time but with Glen’s very last attack Sarah Kerr kept her head to fire over the winner and help the Derry champions to their third Ulster title.


The Glen side will not have much time to celebrate as next weekend they are off to London to play Fr. Murphy’s in the All Ireland quarter final.


Tesco Homegrown Ulster Junior Club Final

Shane O Neills 3-15 Aghyaran 0-13
The Ulster junior club title was won by South Armagh side Shane O Neills. This was a remarkable win when you consider that the oldest player in their starting fifteen goalkeeper Alice Tavey is just 18 years of age, their captain Louise Kenny is just 17 and centre forward Aimee Mackin who top scored with eleven points is just 16.
Emyvale was in excellent condition and despite a horrible bout of rain midway through the first half both sides served up some entertaining football. At the break it was Shane O Neill’s who lead by a single point 1-5 to 0-7, their goal coming from the excellent midfielder Moya Feehan.
Things remained tight for the third quarter however in the final ten minutes Aimee Mackin found her shooting boots and rattled over a number of excellent scores. The important scores from an O Neills point of view were their goals which were scored by Moya Feehan, Blaithin Mackin and Louise Kenny. Aghyaran’s cause wasn’t helped by the sin binning of Kellie Meehan and Bronagh Mc Hugh.
Centre Back Louise Kenny was named player of the match. Shane O Neills now must travel to Edinburgh to play the British champions Dunedin Connollys.
