The county senior camogs made the relatively short journey to Ballycran on Sunday to play Down II in the Ulster Intermediate Championship. The team travelled light on numbers as there were injuries to a large number of players. The pitch was bathed in sunshine and the perfect weather was only matched by the excellent surface in Ballycran.
Tyrone captain for the day Emma Fitzgerald chose to have the wind in their favour in the first half and Tyrone got off to a flyer with points from Niamh McNulty and Aisling Corr. Corr made a run for goal five minutes in and coolly hand passed to the net. Orla Foley was quickly into action and put Caoimhe Rafferty through for another goal. Two minutes later Shauna Jordan went on a run and bagged a goal of her own. Down could not hold onto the ball and when they did the defence of Kathryn Campbell and Roisin O’Neill were at hand to mop up.
It took eleven minutes before Down scored their first point from a free. The scores were coming from everyone in the Tyrone team and Foley hit three from open play before Rafferty hit another goal. Corr and Fitzgerald also helped themselves to scores as Down were unable to cope with the Tyrone midfield. Niamh Gavin was having a fine game for Tyrone and time after time her clearances relieved the pressure on her defence. Down did manage to score a goal just before the half time.
HT Down II 1-1 Tyrone 4-10.
The wind strengthened at the start of the second half and Down opened with two hard won points. Their possession was short lived as Tyrone took control again and hit five unanswered points. Down used the wind and took two points of their own before Shauna Jordan decimated the Down defence with a solo effort that resulted in a goal. The half saw Tyrone playing with style and the whistle at the end highlighted a scoreboard of Down 1-6 Tyrone 5-16.

Tyrone Scorers Aisling Corr 1-6, Caoimhe Rafferty 2-1, Shauna Jordan 2-1, Orla Foley 0-3, Niamh McNulty 0-3, Emma Fitzgerald 0-1, Maria Jordan 0-1.
Tyrone will now play Antrim II on June 5th and a win will cement a place in the final on June 15th in Derry.

It was an extremely busy week for all involved in camogie throughout Tyrone. On Friday evening the Tyrone poc-fada took place in Dungannon at the Eoghan Ruadh hurling field. There were two players from under 16 and senior category taking part in the competition from each of the camogie clubs who attended. Cara Fitzgerald from Doiretreasc won the senior section and Rona Mallon from Edendork won the under 16 section. Paddy Mc Killion won for the senior hurlers and Stephen Curry won the under 16 competition. A massive thanks to all who made the event such a success and especially Ciaran Coyle for all the work in the background.
There were wins for Dungannon and Eglish in the under 14 league in midweek. Eglish hosted a schools blitz that was a huge success on Wednesday past. Derrylaughan held a club Go Games Blitz on Saturday which was attended by over 100 children. The parents and supporters were out in strength and a big thanks to Bronagh Carney and all her team of helpers and referees made the day a special one.
Eglish will host the next coaches support programme with Ross Corbett at 7:00pm on Wednesday 29th May. All coaches are expected to avail of this free programme.
