Kildress Ladies recovered from a rocky first half to turn this game round in the third-quarter and eventually ran out deserving 1-14 to 1-8 winners over a strong and fast-moving Strabane team on a perfect evening at Gortacladdy on Saturday evening.
Driven on by Tyrone Captain Tori McLaughlin, The Sigersons tested Kildress to the full in that opening half and reached the break a deserved goal in front. A reorganised Kildress however really came to terms with things on the restart and Caoimhe Gilmore’s acute angled goal finish gave them a grip on the game that they never relinquished, Chloe Tracey continually picking off points and ending up with a match tally of 0-11.

Clonoe senior ladies welcomed neighbours Coalisland Fianna to Páirc Uí Rathaille on Saturday. On what was a blistering hot day, both clubs put on a very entertaining and enjoyable game of football.
Coalisland were quick to start and by the first water break had established a 1-3 to 0-0 lead and continued this after the restart. It took until half way through the first half before Clonoe got into the game registering their first score through Sinead Hanna with a fine point. By the second water break in the first half it was 2-06 to 0-3. Sinead Hanna got a goal shortly after the restart to Coalisland’s 2 points during this interval closing the gap to 8 points.

In the middle interval another four points were kicked to Coalisland’s two, bringing the deficit to 2 points entering the last ten minutes. Shortly after the restart, following the last water break, Clonoe were awarded a penalty after a foul on Sinead Hanna. Orlagh Gavin scored the spot kick to give the Clonoe girls a one point lead. Coalisland however dug deep and drew level before Clonoe took the lead again through a point from Maeve MacOscar. However it was Coalisland who emerged victorious as they scored the last 3 points to win by two points.
