Tyrone ladies u16 beat Cavan on Saturday in Drumlee Cavan. In a tight first half playing against the wind scores were hard to come by as Tyrone worked hard all over the field to deny Cavan time and space.  Tyrone forwards Shannon Stevenson (0-1), Roisin Devlin (0-1) and Chloe Mc Caffrey (0-2) hit the target to ensure the Red Hands went in at the break 0-4 to 0-3 in front.

The opening thirty minutes saw the Tyrone defence tested and stretched by a fast moving Cavan team Meabh Corrigan, Amy Mc Phillips, Cobhlaith McKenna, Niamh Mc Connell, Shauna Stevenson, Emma Mc Menamin pulled out all the steps to restrict Cavan to 3points in the first half.

Playing with the wind on their backs after the restart Aiobhinn Mc Hugh along with Aimee Daly made the most of the elements. Right from the restart they opened the Cavan defence with neat interlinking play.

Jessica Heaney passed to Shannon Stevenson to fire home a goal while Roisin Devlin and Chloe Mc Caffrey fired over points from frees. Mc Caffrey then worked a one two with Caitlin Kelly before Chloe fired to the net.

As often happens Tyrone were then caught a few times on the counter attack as the Cavan forwards fired over 2points before finding the net. Cobhlaith McKenna was replaced by Orla Coyle whose strong running allowed Roisin Devlin to go on a solo run before finding the net. Caitlin Kelly was replaced by Eve Loughran after she picked up an injury.  She linked well with Meabh Mc Elroy setting up Shannon Stevenson for a point. Cavan continued to work hard and added a further goal but Tyrone stepped up a gear with Chloe Mc Caffrey finding the net.

Cavan’s next attack found the net but Tyrone weren’t to be outdone scoring another two points from Mc Caffrey and Devlin leaving the final score Cavan 3-05 Tyrone 4-09.

The new adult season began this week in Tyrone and there were plenty of scores and decent football on display. It would perhaps be fair to say that the results went to script with wins for Errigal, St Macartans and Aodh Ruadh. The Errigal Ciaran Carrickmore tussle at Dunmoyle unsurprisingly was the closest of the opening round so far.

That game on Wednesday night finished 5-9 to 5-7 with Errigal happy to snatch the league points. Both teams were guilty of conceding poor goals but that just added to the closeness of the tie that was eventually edged by the rejuvenated Errigal spearheaded by the Canavans.

Early days yet for both sides but the home and away format this year means that Carrickmore will still have a chance for revenge. A high scoring and entertaining tie boosted by some cracking scores and the appearance of new young players on both 15s.

Also on Wednesday night a youthful Kileeshill found the going tough against the champions St Macartans. Cathy Donnelly was certainly on form as she rattled in 2-5 to top score. The veteran forward cut loose following a fine performance with Tyrone the previous Sunday. Joline Donnelly and Neamh McGirr scored the other two goals as the Macartans finished with a nineteen point haul.

To their credit Kileeshil created several great chances of goals on more than one occasion. Claire Hegarty did eventually find the target though while Lisa Marie Skeffington and Zoe Loughran were among the points. A good workout for St Macartans who look strong all over the park and will certainly be pressing for honours again this year.

The final first round game of this opening triple bill of games saw Aodh Ruadh see off a stubborn St Enda’s at sunny St Patricks Park. Despite a bright start, Omagh opened their campaign in senior football again on the wrong side of a loss at the hands of a ring rusty Aodh Ruadh. The Dungannon side created a raft of openings but were wide of the mark on several occasions. In the end though Aodh Ruadh eased to victory and ran out 3-15 to 1-8 winners. Niamh Hughes top scored with 1-4. Both sides showed a lot of changes from last year with the first twenty minutes score for score. Hughes flashed in her side’s first goal with McNulty adding a second just before the break. Cara McCrossan hit all but one of Omagh’s 0-5 first half tally with Briona Colton getting the other score.  

Aiofe Morgan’s second half goal for Dungannon ended any hope of an Omagh fight back after McCrossan had found the net for the hosts. Aodh Ruadh then latched on further points to seal the win. A disappointing start for Omagh but they will take heart from the performance of Christiane Hunter, Briona Colton, Hayley Ballard, goalkeeper Seiorse McElduff and top scorer with 1-7 McCrossan.

Dungannon will be pleased with the win with Meabh Mallon, Mary Cassidy, Niamh Hughes and Carol Mc Glinchey performing well.
