Fr Rocks made their 2nd consecutive hour long journey for their 2nd league game, this time away to Dromore.The Young Rocks never got going in the first half and although they had plenty of possession, they just couldn’t take their scores with Brigh O’Kane in the Dromore goals outstanding. The home side on the other hand were clinical in front of the posts leaving the score at half time 2-9 to 4 points in favour of Dromore.

Second half was a much tighter affair with Fr Rocks introducing some late comers and had started to play better football until Kate Mulligan had to go off injured. Even with those replacements they found the home side a tough nut to crack with their slick passing and accuracy  leaving the final score 5-14 to 2-7.

Best on the night for Cookstown was Connagh Conway and Chloe Hawker in defense and upfront Mary Kate O’Neill who scored a well worked goal and Megan McErlain who hit a wonderful long distance point. Neasa Cameron and Aimee Edgar stood out for the winners with very commanding performances.

It was local derby time at Clonoe as the O’Rahillys entertained Coalisland Fianna in round 2 of the league. The Clonoe girls opened the scoring with a fine point from the boot of Ciara Hughes. However Fianna responded with one of their own to level it up. It was after that Clonoe stamped their control of the game working extremely hard to turn the ball over & converting it into scores. Aine O’Hagan found the bottom corner & Rosie McMahon followed in a Ceallagh Rafferty shot to punch it to the back of the net. Rosie McMahon, Ana Duffy & Meagan Hughes kicked further points for the O’Rahillys in the opening half.

Coalisland 3-02

The second half was a much closer but nonetheless competitive affair with Fianna getting bodies back and blocking the path to goal for the girls in black. Though the O’Rahillys played played smart football and kept possession to try and find potential gaps. Clonoe’s goals in this half coming from a Ciara Hughes shot & Rosie McMahon getting her hands on a Rebecca Doris pass to find the bottom corner of the net.

With the Fianna throwing everything at it to get back in it, superb performances from the back six led by Niamh Kilpatrick and Cassie Fitzgerald meant they were finding it hard to get through. Though with one final attack Fianna went through one on one for goal & Eirinn O’Neill was out quick off her line to close down the angle & make a first class save to tip it over the bar.
