Ladies U16 Championship
Clann na nGael 7-7 Kilglass Gaels 2-4
Clann U16 girls had a good win over Kilglass Gaels on Tuesday evening in Johnstown. Kimberley Finlass got the ball rolling with a good point which was followed by a goal from Orla O’Neill. Gillian Egan and Aisling Lennon added further points before two goals late in the first half from Katie Ward and Anna Shine more or less finished the game as a contest. Kilglass got a penalty just before half-time but the excellent Caroline O’Neill saved comfortably. Two superb goals from Gillian Egan were added to by goals from Kayleigh Dunning and Orla O’Neill before Karen Nicholson rounded off the scoring with a well taken point.
Western Gaels 0-4 Clann na nGael 6-8
Clann played their second championship match in five days on Saturday with a trip to Frenchpark. They topped their group with a hard fought victory over Western Gaels.It was only with five goals in the last fifteen minutes that made the scoreline look so comprehensive. Once again Caroline O’Neill was excellent in goal but she also had great support from Jennifer Duignan, Sorcha McManus, Katie Rock and Amy Curley in front of her. A superb early goal from Gillian Egan settled Clann and further points from Gillian and Ciara Galvin gave Clann an interval lead of seven points. They had corner back Lianne O Connor to thank for blocking a 13 metre free which was destined for goal.
The Clann forwards cut loose in the second half following points from Ciara Galvin, Gillian Egan, Rebecca Naughton and Ciava Dunning, they scored a good goal after a neat finish from Ciava Dunning. A brace of goals each from Kayleigh Dunning and Gillian Egan caught the eye at the end with some great approach play from Kimberley Finlass, Anna Shine and Aisling Lennon helping to set up the scores.
