Mna Na Deirge made it two wins from two starts following a hard fought win over a gallant Fintona side on a score of 4 – 8 to 2 – 8.
The Derg ladies played particularly well in the first half and with main scorers Laura Mc Sorley & Shannon Lynch especially prominent they established a healthy lead at the break 3-5 to 0-1. Angela Stephenson produced a player of the match performance for the winners continually working hard in defence while carrying the game to Fintona at every opportunity. Colleen Gallagher in goals had a solid game for Mna Na Deirge while Fintona’s best displays came from Roisin Donnelly, Nichola Donnelly and Michaela Cunningham. However the Pearses will regret their slow start which allowed Mna Na Deirge to build up such a big first half lead. They showed their true worth in the second period with a much improved performance but ultimately paid the price for their early malaise.
Scorers on the night were : Mna Na Deirge – Laura Mc Sorley 1 – 3, Shannon Lynch 2 – 2, Louise Coyle 0 – 3 & Bridget Coyle 1 – 0.
Fintona – Nicola Donnelly 0 – 4, Sinead Kelly 0 – 1, Michaela Cunningham 2 – 1, Aishling Connolly 0 – 1 & Catherine Mc Mullin 0- 1

Donaghmore and Dromore served up a high scoring and highly entertaining game this evening before a couple of late goals ensured victory for Donaghmore.
Indeed the teams were level with 5 mins to go 3.13 a piece before the winners landed 2 goals in a minute. In fairness to Dromore they bounced straight back and had 2 great chances for goals but yielded only 2 points. Emma Hegarty was outstanding for the winners as was Sonya Mc Cullagh, Shauna Mc Nabb and Orla O’Neill for Dromore who scored all 3 goals and several of her side’s points.
In an exciting finish Rebecca Mc Crory hit the winning goal for Donaghmore and the game finished 5-13 to 3-15.

In tonight’s senior league fixture Senior League county champions St.Macartans enjoyed a comprehensive win over Cappagh with the final Score being 4-14 to 0-3. Joline Donnelly hit 0-5 for Macs while Cathy Donnelly scored 1-3 for the winners. St Macartans opened the scoring with 2 points from Joline Donnelly followed by a goal from Elaine Kelly. The Clogher Valley girls were in dominant form and another goal from Katriona Mc Quaid helped them reach the break 2-7 to 0-1 ahead.
Macartans continued to dominate in the second half and early goals from Paula Donnelly and Cathy Donnelly ended the game as a contest as they strolled to a very comfortable win. While this was a fine all round team display two players who stood out for the winners were Shauna Mc Girr and Maura Kelly while Terri Mc Cusker showed flashes for Cappagh.

Aodh Ruadh made the long run to Plumbridge and came away with a narrow 2-9 to 1-10 win. It was a great game of football with both sides serving up high quality action throughout. Aisling O’Kane and Eva Hicks did most of the scoring for the home side and produced strong performances for Glenelly. Aodh Ruadh were strong throughout their team with Nicola Rafferty and Mary Cassidy prominent in midfield. Carol McGlinchey in full forward was a handful all through the game and was well supported by Emma Jane Girven on the wing and Marion Vincent in defence.
The first half saw a good display from the Dungannon side with fine play from the midfield pairing of Mary Cassidy and Nicola Rafferty. Glenelly opened the scoring with a point from Eva Hicks but this was soon cancelled out with scores from lively inside forwards Carol McGlinchey and Aoife McGahan.
As the half wore on Glenelly fought back with scores from Aisling O’Kane and Eva Hicks but a series of further fine scores from Aoide McGahan, Carol McGlinchey and Nicola Rafferty stretched the Aodh Ruadh lead before Dungannon ended the half with a goal from Emma Jane Gervin after a mistake by Glanelly keeper Kellie Morris. At half time the Dunganon side were comfortably ahead at 1 – 6 to 0 – 5.
A spirited Glenelly fight back began in the first ten minutes of the second half with 2 early points. These were followed up with a dubious penalty that youngster Siobhan Sheerin despatched past an unlucky Louise Daly who managed to get a hand to the kick. The game was really on at this point with the score 13 minutes into the half standing at Glenelly 1 – 7 Aodh Ruadh 1 – 6. Some great play from Minor player Orla Mallon, half back Marian Vincent and dangerous half forward Niamh Hughes resulted in a free being converted by Carol McGlinchey before further Glenelly points from O’Kane and Hicks. Eileen Murtagh reacted quickest to a McGlinchey free which rebounded off the cross bar to score a great point.
As the game entered the final few minutes Glenelly took the lead again through Sheerin and the game stood finely balanced at Glenelly 1 – 10 Aodh Ruadh 1 – 9. A strong finish from Aodh Ruadh saw Glenelly pinned in their own half with some fantastic tackling from Orla Mallon, Michelle McKillion and Pauline Barker. With the pressure mounting from Dungannon Glenelly conceded a free after a foul on Niamh Hughes. Carol McGlinchey sent the ball in towards the Glenelly goal and the ball was well finished the net by midfielder Nicola Rafferty. Aodh Ruadh maintained the pressure on the Glenelly defence and held out to win a very sporting and high quality game Glenelly 1 – 10 Aodh Ruadh 2 – 9.

Aghyaran took on Galbally in Aghyaran this evening with Castlederg man Brian McCallion as referee. Conditions were far from perfect with lots of rain and wind making good football very difficult. Galbally opened the scoring with a fine goal from Shauna Kane and followed that up with a point from the boot of Emer Tally. Aghyaran’s first score of the match came from Niamh Gormley with a goal before Lucy McMenamin landed 3 points for the home side. Shauna Kane netted her second goal for Galbally which gave the visitors hope going into the break. Aghyaran led at half time 1-7 to 2-2.
In the 2nd half the home side played with the aid of the breeze and they made good use of the elements finding their range to hit a number of scores when Shannon Skeleton netted twice for Aghyaran while Nicola McMenamin added another major.
Galbally battled hard in the second period and got some reward when Shaua Carrerry scored a consolation goal for the losers.
Scorers for Aghyaran on the night; S.Skeleton 2-4, L.McMenamin 6pts, N.Gormley 1gl, N.McMenamin 1gl, C.Gillispie, A.Mcmenamin, C.A.Byrne & K.Meehan all 1pt a piece. Galbally’s scores; S.Kerr 2-2, S. Carrerry 1 goal 2pts, E.Tally,

Drumragh lost to Loughmacrory in the ladies Junior League at Clanabogan tonight. Entering the game without Neamh Woods they lost Sinead McLaughlin also through injury in the first five minutes, leaving Drumragh with an uphill task, and although they held their own in the second half they just couldn’t match the goalscoring of the Lough girls.

Strabane Sigersons defeated Moy 3-11 to 1-4 to record their second win of the season.
Scorers for Strabane on the night were: Ciara Mc Gill 1-4, Michella Moss 1-0,Hollie Friel 1-0,
Lorraine Conwell 0-3, Bronagh Hoynes 0-3 and Sheree Connolly 0-1.

It was a very good team performance from Strabane Sigersons ladies, on a very cold and windy night with some fine team play and great scoring. Ciara Mc Gill top scored with 1-4, while Michella Moss and Hollie Friel each hit 1-0. Other scorers on the night included Lorraine Conwell and Bronagh Hoynes each getting 0-3 and Sheree Connolly scoring a point. Once again the Sigersons defence played very well with Meghan Bonner pulling off 3 fine saves at vital times in the game. It was a big night for Leoni Cook making her debut but along side Morgan Mc Glynn and Emmer Mc Laughlin all were outstanding in defence. Ciara Mc Gill was the most accomplished forward on view.

Moy ladies will be disappointed with the margin of defeat having started really well with an early goal from Michelle Clancy in the 2nd minute and a point soon after. However that was a s good as it got for them and they found scores very difficult to get and Sigersons defence very hard to break down. Moy had Eimear Mc Cormack and Jill Sheridan as players who stood out for them throughout the game.

Kildress enjoyed a 9-24 to 0-01 win over Stewartstown in a very one sided game. Kildress scorers on the night were : Maeve Conway 2-5, Caoimhe McGurk 2-4, Angela Monaghan 2-2, Caroline McGurk 2-3, Michelle Mullin 1-1, Sarah Lennon 0-3, Cara Loughran 0-3, Louise Devlin 0-1, Shona Mullin 0-1, Hannah Wilkinson 0-1

A quick look at the 3-10 to 3-6 scoreline would appear to suggest a close game between Sperrin Og and Beragh. Beragh did manage to hit a couple of late goals which certainly caused a few nervy moments towards the end for the winners.
Sperring Og were very dominant in the opening period and led 1-8 to 0-2 at the break. The 2011 All Ireland Champions continued to dominate the play in the second half and built up a healthy lead before complacency allowed the Beragh girls to stage a late comeback. Ciara Fox, Eimear Teague, Elesha Mc Dermott and Aisling Fox were impressive for the winners while their scores came from Louise Mc Dermott 1-0, Bronagh Warnock 1-1, Laura Lee Mc Cullagh 1-0, Briege Beggs 0-4, Ciara Fox 0-3, Niamh O’Neill 0-1 and Michaela Mc Dermott 0-1.
