Eglish made it through to the Ulster Intermediate championship final following a comprehensive win over Down side Liatroim Fontenoys on Sunday.

With conditions rather murky both sides took a while to settle with the Tyrone girls being forced to do some staunch defending. A fine Kelley Fay for Eglish picked out Maria Jordan for the first point for the visitors with six minutes gone. This was followed by a fine score from Ciara Donnelly as Eglish sought to build a lead. With Claire Jordan and Aisling Donnelly standing firm in defence the home side were made to work hard.

Ciara Donnelly added a superb free on fifteen minutes from a tight angle before Liatroim opened their account shortly after. An eye catching passage of play occurred when Julie Lagan took a side-line cut launching the sliotar over 25metres to Donnelly who in turn picked out Leanne Donnelly who finished with a point.

Liatroim were still well in the game and added another point a few minutes later. With three minutes remaining in the half another fine display of passing sent Niamh McNulty in for her first point of the game following some excellent Maria Jordan play. Cirara Donnelly added another two points either side of the McNulty score as Eglish finished the opening period on top.

Half Time Liatroim 0-3 Eglish 0-7

The second half some some very competitive and quite physical camogie from both sides. Liatroim failed to score during a half that was littered with frees and yellow cards.

McNulty added another point on seven minutes followed by a sublime goal from Aisling Jordan on the fifteen minute mark. that score sealed the game and the result for Eglish and they closed out the remainder of the game in total control.

Shauna Jordan rounded off a fine display with a few of her trademark mazy runs and was rewarded with a point of her own.
