St Macartans 5-06 Sperrin Óg 0-8

St Macartans collected the U16 league title for the third year in a row  defeating Sperrin Og by thirteen points in a game where the ability of the Clogher Valley girls to plunder goals proved decisive. This result means Sperrin Og have lost out in both the league and championship finals and a season that promised much for the Greencastle girls ends in disappointment for them.
Sperrin Óg started the brighter with some good performances from Rebecca Coyle and Carla McCann. Niamh McGirr hit the net twice for St Macartans but with Niamh O’Neill and Claire Tuohey on target Sperrin Óg led at the break 0-7 to 2-0. St Macartans had Emma McConnell sinbined in the second half but with some fine defensive performances from Ciara Monaghan, Marie Treanor and Jacinta McGovern they kept a dangerous Sperrin Óg forward line quiet. Slaine McCarroll led from midfield as Chloe McCaffrey, Deirdre Bogue, Moire Quinn and Naimh McGirr hit some great scores to ensure victory for the Clogher Valley side.
Jacinta McGovern collected the Elaine Treanor memorial shield and paid a glowing tribute to her team and managers. There was one man missing today Sean McElroy (RIP). Sean was one of the founding members of the St Macartans club. He was the first manager of the senior ladies in 1992 and managed youth teams from U12 to minor over the years. Sean was the joint manager of this current U16 team until his sad passing in August and would have been very proud of his girls collecting the title today.
