Clann na nGael 1-13 Oran 2-6
Pride of place this week goes to the Clann na nGael Senior Ladies team who are Division 2 league champions and captured the first piece of silverware of the year in winning the league final against a very fit and physical Oran team in a hard fought game in Knockcroghery last Saturday evening. The game was played at a very fast pace with both teams giving it everything. Oran opened the scoring with a point but Clann replied with two points from Kayleigh Dunning. Clann were rocked by a goal and point from Oran’s Annette McGeeney and lost Rosa Shine after a clash of heads. Clann then stepped up the pace and scored three points without reply from Kayleigh Dunning (2) and Niamh Fallon.
Just as Clann had got back into the game Oran struck with another goal and point on the 23rd and 24th minute. It looked like it was all going wrong for Clann when they were forced to make another change in defence with Kelly Killian going off injured. But Clann finished the half on top with points from Niamh and Martina O’Brien. The second half started as the first half finished with Clann getting more possession but finding it hard to get scores. Kayleigh Dunning scored a point after two minutes only for Oran to reply with one of their own. Then Clann got the upper hand for the rest of the half and outscored Oran by 1-5 to 0-1, Orla O’Neill with the goal after 21 minutes of the half. Clann’s fitness really showed in the last fifteen minutes, getting first to the ball and laying off good possession to other players. This was a great team effort from the whole panel.
Team: C O’Neill, A Egan, R Shine, K Finlass, K Killian, A Shine, M O’Brien (0-1), O O’Neill (1-0), N Fallon (0-1), K Watson, C Fallon, K Dunning (0-8), N O’Brien (0-1), A Golden, B Gately (0-1), G Wall, M Sweeney, R Naughten, K Doran, E Goode, M Shine, M Gately, L O’Connor, A McEvilly, C Dunning.
