Clonoe senior girls hosted the final home league game of their season against Beragh Red Knights.
With the heat still a factor it was a difficult evening to play football but the girls got off to a great start with Orlagh Gavin opening the scoring with a fine a goal. The home side hit a further two points before Beragh broke down a solid Clonoe defence to register their first point of the game.
The O’Rahillys continued to dominate possession and kept the scoreboard ticking over as they sought to build a substantial lead. This saw the girls go in at halftime 3-05 to 0-04 ahead, with the two further goals coming from Alicia Devlin and Brona MacOscar.
Second half the girls started where they had left off with some excellent long range points and with Liza McKee pulling off a great point blank save and staying solid under the high ball it set the platform for the win. But it was the girls ruthless streak in front of goal that ensured the points were safe with further goals from Brona MacOscar, Orlagh Gavin, Briana Quinn and Naiomi Donnelly.
Clonoe O’Rahillys 7-13
Beragh Red Knights 1-08
Loughmacrory v Aghaloo
Half time: Lough 1-9 to 1-3
Full time: Lough 4-15 to 3-5
Aghaloo were sharp into the attack with a goal. Lough knocked over a few points to come back level and never looked back. Aided by strong performances in midfield by Claire Gallagher and Aisling Logue, Lough were able to rack up scores through Kerri Ward and Aoife Kelly. Strong defending in the Lough back line by Aine Donaghy and co helped keep Aghaloo at bay, however they still looked threatening throughout with their full forward proving a handful on occasions. Lough battled strongly to produce a much needed win.
Naomh Eoghan 4-15, Stewartstown 1-03.
A well earned victory for a group of amazing young footballers. They worked solidly from beginningto end in very difficult conditions, and earned the well deserved victory.

Dromore soon settled and rose to the challenge as they eventually got to the pace of the game putting up a real battle throughout the hour. The Aodh Ruadh girls enjoyed much more of the possession resulting in numerous chances and several well crafted and well finished goals.
