The Tyrone junior championship took place in Garvaghey on Sunday between Naomh Treasa of Dungannon and Éire Óg of Carrickmore. It was a repeat of the 2011 final and both sides were evenly matched. The game got off to blistering start as Éire Óg scored two goals in as many minutes. There was a fierce wind blowing and they added another point soon afterwards. Dungannon found it very hard to find their feet. They were playing into a strong wind but  soon settled when they had a point on the board .  A goal quickly followed as both teams found a little bit of rhythm. Dungannon began to dominate play and added another goal. The East Tyrone girls went on to take control of the first half and the scoreboard at the break read Dungannon 2-3 to Éire Óg’s 2-1.
Dungannon had the wind in their favour in the second half and soon added a few more points to maintain their lead. Éire Óg never gave up and battled on to the final whistle scoring three points in the second half. The final score was Dungannon 2-8 to Éire Óg 2-4. Rebecca Barker received the winning trophy from Martin Donnelly and Aileen Fox from Dungannon won player of the match. They will now progress to represent Tyrone in Ulster.
The under 14 county players took centre stage on Saturday at the Ulster Blitz. The county were able to field two teams that were entered in sections C and D at a Swatragh complex that was bathed in sunshine. The section matches were all fifteen minute one way ties and first up for Tyrone was a talented Armagh team. This game was a very even affair but Tyrone were able to take their scores from long range. It resulted in 1-1 to 0-0 win for the Red Hands. Cavan were up next and once again there was little between the teams but with Tyrone being more clinical in front of goals recorded their second win on a 3-0 to 0-3 score line. This booked Tyrone’s place in the final and meant that they would play Cavan again in the repeat of the 2012 final. The game hinged on some excellent play from the Cavan midfield as they took the final 1-4 to 0-4.
The section D team played next and they found Donegal and Cavan far too strong as they lost both matches. A huge thank you to Fionnula McGrath and Gareth Fox who have put a lot of time in getting the team ready for the Blitz. Ulster camogie and Ross Corbett put a lot of effort into making the day a special one for all the counties in Ulster and they must be commended for their efforts. The team will continue their training on Saturday 17th August at 11:00am in Edendork. All clubs are asked to make their players aware of the training as although there are huge numbers in attendance it is clear that some players are missing. The team’s next challenge will be the Ulster championship at the end of August.
In the club scene Brocagh hosted Dungannon in the senior league and it was the visitors that took the points. In the under 16 competition Dungannon beat Father Shields and Edendork had a win over Éire Óg.
In the minor championship Dungannon will play Derrylaughan on Monday 19th in a Preliminary round and the winners will be rewarded with a home fixture against Moortown.
The under 16 championship will see Edendork host Dungannon and the winners will be rewarded with a place in this year’s final on September 9th against Eglish. On Monday Dungannon will play Derrylaughan in the under 14 semi-final of the championship which will be at the hurling fields at 7:00pm.
We wish all teams every success in their games in what is a very busy couple of weeks for all involved in camogie throughout the county.
