Drumragh were made to battle all the way by a talented Loughmacrory side before they emerged one point winners in their championship semi final at Killyclogher on Sunday evening. A converted free from Neamh Woods and a fine point from play off the boot of Amy Cox finally saw off a Loch side that had battled throughout.

Beth Donaghy opened the scoring with a point for Drumragh before Kerri Grimes found the net for Loughmacrory. Points from Cox and Neamh Woods levelled the game while Woods pointed again to hand her side the lead with twenty first half minutes gone.

With defences on top there was little space for either set of forwards however Ciara Taylor managed to weave her way through the Drumragh rearguard to tie the game with a fine score. Not to be outdone Neamh Woods ran from deep to send over a superb point ensuring her team went in at the break leading 0-5 to 1-1.

A brace of points from Lisa Mc Aleer during the opening ten minutes of the second half had Loughmacrory one up but before they could build on their lead they were rocked back on their heels when Cox burst through to find the net and put Drumragh in pole position once again.

Loughmacrory continued to work hard and were rewarded for their endeavours when scores from Taylor and Mc Aleer once again had the teams level at 1-5 apiece. Loughmacrory were dominating possession but hard work from Joanne Barrett, Claire Mc Laughlin and Emma Lynch prevented the Loch girls from moving ahead.

With time running out Cox put Drumragh one up only for Mc Aleer to level the game once more before Drumragh managed to edge the game after eight minutes of injury time courtesy of those late scores from Woods and Cox.  Â
