Roscommon Ladies Intermediate Championship
Clann na nGael 3-11 Michael Glaveys 3-9
Clann secured a semi-final place in the championship with round of matches left to play with a hard fought victory over Michael Glaveys in Johnstown on Sunday. Clann started well with two frees from Blana Gately before wing forward Ciara Fallon scored a point after being set up by Rebecca Naughton. When Michelle Harney-Nolan hit the woodwork Blana Gately was following up to volley home from close range. Glaveys hit with three unanswered points before Maz Sweeney pointed before Rebecca Naughton increased Clann’s lead with a point from an impossible angle. Ciara Fallon then intercepted a kick-out to return the ball over the crossbar and then Blana Gately struck for her second goal with a shot into the roof of the net from 15 metres. The same player followed up with a good point from play before Glaveys scored a goal from a penalty. Clann led 2-8 to 1-4 at the break but Glaveys came out in the second half and with the aid of the breeze took the game to Clann. A superb goal and three unanswered points left a point between the sides before Clann rallied and a Maz Sweeney point was followed by a goal from Clann. A quickly taken free from Blana Gately to Ruth Finlass was passed inside to the awaiting Niamh O’Brien who dispatched the ball low into the bottow corner. Substitute Kayleigh Dunning tagged on another point to leave six points between the sides and seemed to end the game as a contest. But Glaveys had other ideas and another well taken goal was followed by a point to leave it a nail biting finish but Clann prevailed. Clann had good performances all over with Kelly Killian, Ciara Fallon, Rebecca Naughton, Blana Gately particularly catching the eye.
Team: Eileen Goode, Michelle Keegan, Martina O’Brien, Mary Shine, Kelly Killian, Niamh Fallon, Rosa Shine, Gillian Wall, Ruth Finlass, Ciara Fallon 0-2, Michelle Harney-Nolan , Blana Gately 2-4, Rebecca Naughton 0-1, Maz Sweeney 0-3, Tracey Keegan. Subs: Kayleigh Dunning 0-1, Kim Finlass, Niamh O’Brien 1-0.
