Ulster U-14 Blitz Results


Peter Canavan’s daughter Aine showed she is a chip
of the old block as she notched 1-1 in the final of the Ulster U14
blitz yesterday. Tyrone won the A competition, beating Cavan in
the decider 1-4 to 2-0. The Red Hand girls had to come from behind
to secure the title. Cavan had a dream start when midfielder Jenny
O Rourke made a driving run up the centre and blasted a shot which
Tyrone keeper Grainne Mc Grade failed to hold and had to watch agonisingly
as the ball rolled over the line. There was further disappointment
for Tyrone as Breffni forward Ciara Moore was to find the net for
the second time midway through the half. 

Tyrone midfielder Nicola Rafferty opened their account with a
nice point and then on the stroke of half time the lively Canavan
popped up to fire a looping shot over the head of Cavan keeper
Aoife Fitzpatrick. In the second half Tyrone where like a new
team. Emma Jane Girvan fired over a free early on and then Aine
Canavan drew the sides level with a lovely point. Midfielder Rafferty
then hit the winner with five minutes to go. In truth Tyrone deserved
their win and the score would have been much greater but for an
excellent display by the Cavan full back Laura Clarke. In total
nineteen games were played at the excellent Greencastle grounds.
After the first round, the ten teams from six counties were split
into three grades of competition.

The B competition saw Down, Armagh and Fermanagh all finish level.
Each team were then asked to take five frees each from the twenty
meter line and it was Armagh and Down who progressed to the final.
The Mourne girls had a couple of points to spare in a close and
exciting final. The C competition was played for between counties
which provided two teams. Once again the games were all close
and it was Monaghan and Tyrone’s second strings which met in the
final. The Oriel girls trailed at the break 0-2 to 0-1 but went
on to win 1-3 to 0-4, Caoimhe Moen scoring the all important goal.
