ST PATRICK’S Academy Dungannon picked up Ulster Schools’ Junior Medallion Shield for
the very first time in Armagh yesterday after leading the holders Sacred Heart Newry from 
pillar to post in the final.

Captain and free-taker Emma Holmes hit the first two of her six points during the opening 
five minutes and cousins Eva (2) and Orla Cullen added three more points as the Academy 
built up an interval lead of 0-6 to 0-1.

While the eventual winners could have been further ahead, Sacred Heart also squandered
chances throughout the game. Their defence worked well with Grace Clancy and Eimear 
McAvoy strong, but only Orla Crimmons up front looked capable of causing the Academy 
any real problems.

Crimmins scored their only point of the opening half and added another on the re-start, but 
Holmes hit three frees in a row and the Academy were in control at 0-9 to 0-2 by the second 

There was a slight hiccup for the winners when Emer Smyth fired in an excellent goal in the fifty second
minute, but Catherine Moohan popped over the score of the game in reply and the Academy went on to 
take the title with Holmes, Moohan, Olivia McGuinness and the Cullen cousins always
