Strabane Sigersons 6-4 v Trillick St Macartan’s 3-6

Páirc Naomh Eoghan, Newtownstewart was the splendid setting last Saturday morning for the Tyrone Ladies Grade 3B Championship final featuring Strabane and Trillick.
 
The Sigersons girls got off to a flying start in the encounter with their county players putting their mark on the match straight from the throw in. Aoife O’Kane found the back of the net in the opening minutes and Ellie-Jay McMenamin followed it up with fine solo effort moments later. Trillick responded well and went into the lead when they scored 2-2 without reply. Further scores were at a premium during the first half as both defences were keen not to offer any space to the normally free scoring forwards. A good team move by Sigersons ended their barren period and saw Aoife Foley fire over her first point of the game and Ellie-Jay McMenamin brought the first half to a close and the sides level with a point from a free kick.The second half was a more open encounter with Trillick racing into to the lead with a couple of points but Ellie-Jay McMenamin popped up again with a goal and a point. Ellie Boggs then went on a scoring spree netting two goals leaving the Sigersons girls eight points up. To their credit Trillick battled on and got a goal back before Ellie Boggs completed her second half hat-trick.
Aoife Foley also added to her personal tally scoring another point from play.
 
The Sigersons defence held their nerve with countless blocks and turnovers of possession in the dying minutes to ensure that they retained their lead. The final whistle brought scenes of great joy as the players celebrated with their parents and supporters who had made a mini-pitch invasion.
 
Team captain Jamie Donnelly proudly received the Grade 3B Championship Cup from Tyrone Ladies Vice-Chairperson Patsy McCrory to scenes of jubilation.
 
Sigersons and Trillick will go head to head once again in the forthcoming League final which is sure to be another tight encounter.
