Junior Championship

Edendork St Malachy’s 4-12

Moy Tir Na nog 2-10

Abigail Rafferty and Laura Kelly hit a brace of goals apiece as Edendork beat a battling Moy in what turned out to be an exciting junior quarter final. The St Malachy’s now face the challenge of a high scoring Badoney in the semi-final but they will take great confidence from this performance.

Moy found the net with a couple of fine goals themselves. Emer Currie hit 1-4 and Eimear Mc Cormack scored 1-1 yet despite carving out several good chances over the hour the quality of the Edendork attack proved critical.

Maeve Maxwell finished the game with 0-8 with Eva Corr and Emma Connolly also adding points as the St Malachy’s maintained their advantage to secure the win. Credit to Moy they worked hard throughout,  Nina Murphy 0-3, Shona Jordan and Colleen Mc Cance kept the scoreboard ticking over for them but it wasn’t to be their  day.


Ardboe O’Donavan Rossa 6-11

Cappagh 1-6

Ardboe netted four first half goals to ease themselves through to the last four of the intermediate championship as Cappagh only briefly threatened at Greencastle. The Killyclogher side turned in an improved second half display with the hard working Caitlin Kelly and Kate Mc Aleer taking the game to the Rossa’s but the damage had been done as they found themselves 2-3 to no score down early in the first half.

There was an air of inevitability about this one as Ardboe went through the gears. Niamh Quinn and Leah Martin impressed at centrefield with Niamh Teague and Annie Devlin the perfect foil up front as they led 4-7 to 0-4 at the break.

Devlin helped herself to two first half goals, Teague and Erin Forbes also finding the net through the opening half as Cappagh struggled to get into the tie. Noleen Carland, Kelly and Kerry Quinn bravely battled away. Carland had come into the tie with an injured shoulder and it was no surprise that she was withdrawn at the break.

Mc Aleer fired in an early Cappagh second half goal and Ardboe were rattled as the West Tyrone girls created several opportunities but when Annie Quinn bagged a fifth Ardboe goal on forty minutes there was no way back for Cappagh.

Nicola Quinn tagged on a sixth goal with points on the board from Ciara Mulgrew and Teague as the O’Donavan Rossas set up a semi-final meeting with a hotly tipped Killeeshill.


Errigal Ciaran 11-8

Glenelly St Joseph’s 0-2

If anyone doubted Errigal Ciaran’s championship credentials this systematic demolition of Glenelly at Tattyreagh sent out a clear message. Eleven goals, eight different scorers and all that minus an ill Maria Canavan with the Dunmoyle side turning in an excellent all round performance. The game was delayed for a time while Emma Tierney was treated for an injury and transferred to hospital.

The Errigal win sets up a mouth watering semi-final encounter with St Macartans next week with both teams having racked up big quarter final wins.

Errigal started well and by the end of the first quarter the impressive Aine Canavan had found the Glenelly net as they led 1-3 to 0-1, Eva Hick’s tagging on a St Joseph’s point. The accidental injury suffered by Tierney came with sixteen minutes played and on the resumption Errigal cut loose.

Geardine Mc Ginley, Lycrecia Quinn and Canavan added goals with Shannon Cunningham, Cailin Mc Cann and Meabh Corrigan impressive as Errigal led 4-6 to 0-1 at the break. Siobhan Sheerin was tigerish going forward but without support she could not turn the tide in the second half as Errigal ran their bench and continued to keep the pressure on.

Cunningham fired to the Glenelly net within two minutes of the restart, Canavan completed her hat trick and after Quinn added a point, Elle Mc Namee tagged on a seventh Errigal goal. Quinn, Mullan and Cunningham were among further scores for Errigal who will enter the last four with plenty of confidence.
