Round 2 of the U16 League continued this week on Wednesday 11th April, with some great talent on display from players all over Tyrone.

After a successful win in round 1, Derrylaughan continued their efforts this week in their match against Naomh Pádraig, with great scores in the first half from Sian Fitzgerald, Rachel O’Neill and Elisha Gervin. In the second half, Naomh Pádraig broke through the Derrylaughan defence and scored two great points. In the end, Derrylaughan claimed the match and go on to face Éire Óg joined with Fr. Shields next week in round 3. 

 

Edendork and Dungannon produced a tightly contested match with scores aplenty. The Dungannon goalkeeper pulled off some great saves, even at one point turning an almost-goal into a point! However, Sinead McGeary, Lara Devlin and Cliona Nelis (to name a few) ensured the constant attack from Edendork was rewarded with the win.

The Post-Primary League got underway this week in Tyrone on Tuesday 10th April. Our young players were excited to play the first round, even in miserable conditions, and there were some excellent displays all around the County. 

Edendork and Éire Óg put on a fine show of skill. With both teams backboned by players from their U14 County Féile teams, the standard remained high throughout. A word of praise for the Éire Óg goalkeeper, Róise, who pulled off some fantastic saves! Even though Éire Óg enjoyed plenty of possession, it was Edendork who prevailed in the end.

 

Across town, Naomh Treasa hosted Fr. Shields from Greencastle and both teams were well up for the challenge. With well-placed balls into the forward lines and fine scores from the stick of Naomh Treasa’s Danisha Bell and Aoibhinn Eilian, things were looking good for the town side. However, the Fr. Shields’ girls had their defence well organised and that along with their ability to convert their scoring chances in front of the goal made the difference on the night resulting in a hard fought win for Fr. Shields. One particular highlight of the match was a great goal by Fr Shields in the first half. 

Brocagh and Omagh enjoyed a close match, at St. Patrick’s Park with a great first half in particular. Omagh opened the scoring with a well taken point, putting Brocagh under pressure. Omagh maintained a slender lead and had the aid of the breeze in the second half. A long ball into Brocagh’s defence bounced kindly for Omagh’s forward player, Sinead Barrett who scored a well-taken goal. However, Brocagh kept up the momentum with some superb Camogie from Teagan Dorman and Aoife Quinn but Omagh held on for the win thanks to Mollie O’Hanlon who was outstanding in defence.

 

The Loup joined our Post-Primary League this season, going up against Doiretreasc in their first match. After plenty of high balls and tight tackles, the Loup came out on top, setting the pace for the rest of the competition.

 

A special mention to Tulach Óg who celebrated fielding a camogie team at post-primary level for the first time. The girls put on a fantastic performance against a strong Eglish team. After getting off to a slow start, the Tulach Óg girls were well behind with Eglish demonstrating a great level of skill and teamwork reflecting their greater experience. However, the Tulach Óg girls staged a comeback in the second half, hitting 4 great goals!! The win was Eglish’s though, with Tulach Óg using this experience to prepare to meet Edendork this week in round 2 of the League.

 

Despite many great individual performances throughout the matches, Camogie was the real winner and all teams know that with continued practice comes a great future playing for their respective teams.
